CNN reporter calls Israelis 'scum' (updated)

Jew haters are out in droves. They’re everywhere. And they’re brazen.

Yesterday, A CNN reporter sent out a tweet calling Israelis “scum.” It was deleted a few minutes later, but Buzzfeed captured and preserved the image:

I can anticipate that many conservatives will say it doesn’t matter because no one watches CNN. Or because CNN is irrelevant. Or because everyone knows they’re biased. But thinking that way seriously underestimates the power of the mainstream media.

Many of us may not watch CNN and/or may not think highly of the outlet. But millions and millions of Americans and people around the world do watch and listen to their broadcasts. They don’t perceive CNN as irrelevant or biased. For millions of people, CNN and other mainstream media outlets are perceived as legitimate. These media giants influence the thinking of those who watch and listen. The role the media plays in shaping public opinion is enormous and should never be minimized.

Meanwhile, I would love to have a moment or two with this CNN reporter to ask her a handful of questions:

What word would she use to describe terrorists bent on killing innocent civilians, people who celebrate killing innocent civilians, people who sacrifice children as human shields, and what word or words would she use to describe a totalitarian doctrine that masquerades as a religion that calls for death not only for Jews, but for all “non believers” – a group that said journalist falls into?

I’m just curious.

Update from Carol Brown:

CNN reporter Diana Magnay has been reassigned to Russia. I was hoping it might be Siberia, but it turns out she’s reassigned to Moscow. Bummer.

It’s a drop in the bucket, as far as I’m concerned. CNN, like most other mainstream media outlets, is manipulating world opinion every single day so it tilts farther and farther against Israel. Diana’s reassignment puts a microscopic dent in the dangerous and libelous propaganda machine that churns 24/7.
