DreamWorks SKG

DreamWorks SKG
Hollywood insiders called them the “Dream Team”: Spielberg, Katzenberg, Geffen. Formidable names on the left coast, surely, but even more formidable when entered in a joint venture with the richest man in the world. Microsoft and DreamWorks have a joint venture called DreamWorks Interactive, LLC, which mostly makes mediocre games—but digging deeper leads to Paul Allen’s $500 million stake in DreamWorks SKG.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
