CNN Israel Fires All Jewish Journalists,Retains Only Muslims?

CNN slants coverage of Israeli and Palestinian News.


Update at 8:30 PST:we just received the names of the four journalists that were fired:
Moshe Cohen,editor,fired on january

It is likely to provoke a wave of shock and indignation within the North American media industry,and it certainly will not calm down the controversy over the pro-palestinian CNN treatment of the conflict.

We learned today that the Israeli branch of CNN, located in Jerusalem,is downsizing to cope with reduced income from less advertising.

What goes beyond good management is that CNN has fired four Israeli Jewish journalists (out of a crew of 8),and has retained only Arab journalists. Where,until now,CNN always sent a Jewish and an Arab journalist to cover information,now there will be only an Arab journalist. The local chief editor of the News Chanel is now Arabic.

30,10 years with CNN.
Izi Landberg,Producer,about 25 years with CNN,fired on January 30.
Avi Kaner cameraman fired on january 30,10 years with CNN.
Michal Zippori desk producer,situation still unclear.

This is a conflict where information is central to public opinion, and it weighs a lot on diplomatic decisions. Furthermore, it is no secret that Arab journalists cannot freely publish what they want without risking for their own lives when traveling to Gaza, East Jerusalem, and Judea Samaria. Thus, CNN decision to fire all Jewish journalists from its Jerusalem office is of particular concern, because the general public is unaware that they will be receiving biased information from CNN.

    The takeaway from this is not that Arab journalists are necessarily biased, rather that they risk bodily harm if their reporting isn’t favorable to the Muslim/Arab/Palestinian point of view. Such reporting, even though it may be true and accurate, is viewed by some Muslims as a betrayal by the Arab journalists of ‘their people’. This underlying threat to their lives forces Arab journalists to slant their coverage and avoid honest reporting in many cases. Jewish reporters don’t face any increased threats based upon their reporting.

    CNN is well aware of this fact and yet has intentionally fired all their Jewish reporters, knowing this will result in slanted, inaccurate reporting. This is just another proof that CNN abandoned whatever journalistic integrity they may have had.
