Chavez and leaders of Venezuela’s Jewish community to meet about alleged anti-semitism in state media

September 9, 2010

The AP is reporting that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will be meeting with leaders of the Venezuelan Jewish community who are concerned about anti-Semitic content in state media. Details of the offending content were not provided, but the report notes that previous complaints have cited “cartoons in government-friendly newspapers and commentary on pro-Chavez websites”. “Government-friendly” and “pro-Chavez” are not “state media”, of course. As soon as I learn more about the nature of the current complaints, I’ll post an update.
