Fuente Latina is an organization founded in 2012 by CEO Leah Soibel (pictured), to provide accurate news and commentary on the Middle East to Spanish-language news outlets. The related Latin-Jewish Media and Entertainment Alliance was launched in July 2022, with the goal of engaging journalists and influencers who reach Spanish-speaking audiences to portray Israel and the Jewish world in a positive light. A prominent Mexican Jewish TV executive, Joshua Mintz, leads the project, which Soibel said in a statement is essential given the efforts underway to tell a different story to Spanish-language news consumers.
Quote: “We see firsthand how state-funded Spanish-language media networks like Iran’s HispanTV and Russia Today en Español invest millions of dollars to purposely spread disinformation that fuels division, mistrust, and antisemitism among Latinos worldwide.” — Fuente Latino founder and CEO Leah Soibel
