Fox Facebook Poll Asks if Jews Killed Jesus
The network has now apologized for the poll.
Fox Latin America posted a poll on their Facebook page promoting a Christmas Special on National Geographic. The survey asked readers who was responsible for the death of Christ; Pontius Pilate, The Jewish People, or the High Priests?
Buenos Aires’ Simon Weisenthal Center expressed it’s outrage at the network, insisting that this poll perpetuates an idea that the Vatican annulled in 1965. The Center also added that it’s a defamatory reference to Vatican propaganda that “resulted in the persecution and murder of Jews for two millennia.”
Guadalupe Lucero, a Fox Spokeswoman, apologized on behalf of National Geographic. The poll was removed immediately and “measures have been taken to prevent such incidents in the future.”
