    Yesterday I wrote about the controversy surrounding Seth MacFarlane's purportedly anti-Semitic Oscar night jokes which implied that Jews control Hollywood. But the MacFarlane case wasn’t the only recent episode involving: 1.Jews; 2. an attempt at being humorous; 3. supposed...

    Coming late to this round of responses to Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar night Jewish (or anti-Jewish) jokes makes life so much easier. Of course, I didn’t join late because I knew it would make my life easier, but rather because I thought – and this was an obvious mistake– that...

    MacFarlane's misfires
    Seth MacFarlane may not have been the best host the Academy Awards ever had, but, boy, was he a controversial one. On Sunday night, the "Family Guy" creator took...

  • Judaism’s Big Moment at the Oscars

    By Abe Fried-Tanzer

    February 26, 2013 | 9:36 am

  • Oscar’s big Jewish joke

    By Danielle Berrin

  • Seth MacFarlane: Not an anti-Semite

    No one sends out press releases to announce that something is not anti-semitic.
