The nature of Czech media coverage of the crisis in Venezuela is connected to its ownership structures. In particular, the Czech online news outlet, Seznam.cz, is influenced by its owner – the Tiger Holding Four company, which belongs to George Soros.
The ownership information of Seznam.cz is outdated. In January 2016, the platform’s founder, Ivo Lukačovič, bought back all foreign-held minority shares, including from the Tiger Holding Four company. Accordingly, the claim that George Soros influences the editorial agenda of Seznam.cz is unsubstantiated.
This is another example of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation and conspiracy theories about Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist George Soros.
