Nikki Finke V. Jeffrey Katzenberg

We excerpt a moment from today’s press conference over the closure of the Motion Picture and Television Fund Home

 

Nikki Finke asks Jeffrey Katzenberg why the studios haven’t stepped in to save the Motion Picture Home.

 

NF: Why not twist the arms of the studios?

JK: Nikki, you’re hired.

NF: Give us an idea of how much these goniffs give every year.

JK: You just crossed the line.

NF: Why can’t we know how much they give?

JK: Philanthropy is an unusual part of life. I can’t be critical of anyone who gives a dime. I won’t be – if you’re gonna give one dime or 10 dimes. All u can say is, God bless you and thank you.
