**UPDATE** Politico: NBC Vehemently Denies Allegations Over Anti-Semitic Email
**UPDATE 2** ALG Statement in Response to Alleged NBC Email
**UPDATE 4**Group Stands Ground Over Claims That NBC Employee Issued Anti-Semitic Email
Apparently NBC "Dateline" producer Jane Stone or someone else who has access to her Blackberry has a problem with groups that oppose ACORN and with an ethnocultural minority.
When Stone received an email urging Congress to defund ACORN from Alex Rosenwald, director of media outreach for Americans for Limited Government
, the following sentence came back to Rosenwald from Stone's account: "Bite me, Jew Boy!"
Bite me Jew boy! -
Americans for Limited Government released the following statement:
Americans for Limited Government does not contend that NBC or its parent company GE, are anti-Semitic. What is highly disturbing, however, is that there clearly is a culture at NBC that has allowed this person who clearly has issues to go unchecked.
Ms Stone claims she did not send the offensive email. If that is not the case, we at ALG call upon her to help ascertain who did send it using her Blackberry and her email address. If Ms Stone did, in fact, send it, we at ALG call upon Ms Stone to apologize to Mr. Rosenwald, and we call upon the NBC hierarchy above Ms Stone to join her in issuing that apology.
I am told by fellow right-leaning journalists that getting rude and offensive emails from reporters in the mainstream media is a fairly common occurrence.
It happened to me last fall when an occasional writer for the New York Times
named Dan Mitchell sent me an electronic nastygram
after I appeared on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" in a package about ACORN. I understand the newspaper disciplined Mitchell.
