Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez among 17 Latino journalists to visit Israel
Maynard Institute | The Jerusalem Post
The Anti-Defamation League sponsored a trip to Israel last week for 17 Latino journalists, including former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, who was fired last year after calling Jon Stewart a "bigot" and making other anti-Semitic remarks. The trip was aimed at exposing Latinos to Israel and the ongoing conflict there. The Anti-Defamation League cites data that shows Hispanic Americans born outside the U.S. are nearly twice as likely to hold anti-Semitic views.
According to Maynard, others making the trip included:
- Henrik Rehbinder, opinion editor of La Opinión in Los Angeles
- Fernando Diaz, managing editor of Hoy in Chicago
- Nuria Net, deputy editor of Univision News
