Are we obligated to pretend that all of those things are untrue?

I'm speaking of the United States here. In France, I have no idea, and it
could very well be different.

But disproportionate Jewish representation in the American media is hardly

And during the period when I worked with lawyers in New York, nobody -
least of all the Jews - was shy about observing their presence in the
profession was all out-of-whack, even compared with their local population.

I'm well aware that the offensiveness of some stereotypes doesn't hinge on
their accuracy.


Maybe this is one of those things, in France anyway. I really don't know.

But any pollster who flat-out asks, "Is this true?" is, well, asking for it.
