In 1896 Adolph Ochs bought The New York Times for $75,000 of borrowed money. Circulation was below 25,000. In 1935 Ochs died and his daughter, Iphigene’s, husband Arthur Sulzberger became the publisher.
It is well known that both Ochs and Sulzberger, both Jews, considered themselves the elite of New York City. They ardently sought to be included in ‘respectable’ New York society because they owned ‘the most important newspaper in the world’ in the most important city in the world.
I have in front of me the Social Register of New York 1960. That was the last year the Official Register was published for the ‘elite hereditary society’ of America. That hereditary society soon fell apart.
Neither the Ochs name nor the Sulzberger names are to be found in the New York Social Register.
They never made it.
Since I consider the 21st Century New York Times to be a low grade dishonest mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, it is with glee that I point out this omission. These social climbers never made it.
