(The New Observer) — Breitbart News was “founded by Jews, is largely staffed by Jews, and has an entire section dedicated to reporting on and defending the Jewish state of Israel,” that organization’s Jewish CEO Larry Solov has announced.
Solov was responding to an attack on Breitbart news by Hilary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook after Donald Trump hired Breitbart News’s executive chairman Steve Bannon as his new campaign manager.
Mook said in his reaction that “Trump has decided to double down on his most small, nasty, and divisive instincts by turning his campaign over to someone who is best known for running a so-called news site that peddles divisive, at times, racist, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, conspiracy theories.”
Mook went on to cite the Jewish supremacist Southern Poverty Law Center which earlier claimed that Breitbart News was a media arm of the “alt-right.”
In his statement, Solov dismissed Mook’s allegations, saying that Breitbart News “was founded by Jews, is largely staffed by Jews, and has an entire section (Breitbart Jerusalem) dedicated to reporting on and defending the Jewish state of Israel.”
In November 2015, Solov also penned an article on Breitbart News in which he revealed that the idea to create the news service had been “conceived in Israel.”
Under a photograph of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sitting at a table with Andrew Breitbart himself and Solov, the article said that “a lot of people don’t realize this but Breitbart News Network really got its start in Jerusalem,” and that the intention of the site was always to be “unapologetically pro-freedom and pro-Israel.”
