Perpetuating stereotypes about Jewish people in Serbian media

Description: The topic of the article published in one of the most read Serbian dailies is the anniversary of the state of Israel and current political circumstances. However, there is a small text box with the headline 'Jews, the rulers of the world', where it is stated that Jews are considered to be the rulers from the shadow with a strong lobby. They are described as one of the wealthiest communities in the USA and are considered to be founders of banking system. --------------------------------------------------------------------Counter argument: Although the text is written in the informative tone, the headline has a bias which can influence the readers understanding of the text. Although the author used the phrase “considered to be”, many of the statements do not have grounding and could be misleading. Finally and probably most importantly, this part of the text is not related in any way with the main text, thus only reminds the readers to the prevailing stereotypes about the Jewish people.
