CNN Fires Entire Jewish Staff Of Israel Bureau, Keeps Only Arab Reporters
Atlas Shrugs ^ | 2/10/12 | Pamela Geller

We have always known how anti-Israel and biased CNN (Crescent News Network) is. Now there is no pretense. They have laid bare their antisemitism for all the world to see. Unabashed prejudice. One can only imagine the propaganda packaged as "news" that we will be subjected to from their 'Palestinian' stringers.

CNN Fires Entire Jewish Staff Of Israel Bureau - And Retains Only Arab Reporters (Before It's News)

CNN's Israel bureau is downsizing, reportedly to cope with a reduced budget due to falling advertising revenues.

That doesn't explain why they fired four Israeli Jewish journalists (out of a crew of 8), and retained only Arab journalists. The local chief editor of CNN is now an Arab.

Among the long time news personnel let go were Moshe Cohen, editor, fired after 10 years with CNN; Izi Landberg, Producer, about 25 years with CNN; Avi Kaner cameraman fired after 10 years with CNN; and Michal Zippori desk producer.

CNN's usual procedure in the past was to send both a Jewish and an Arab reporter out on stories. Now, they're only going to send an Arab journalist, with all that implies. It's no secret to anyone that Arab journalists have to toe the Fatah and Hamas line if they want to do reporting on stories in Gaza and the Arab occupied areas of Judea and Samaria without taking the risk of being murdered.

Years ago Saddam allowed CNN to have an office on Baghdad.
Some would call CNN his propaganda bureau. No different today.

CNN activity should be tossed from Israel ... and tossed from Time Warner outlets in America.

Ah yes, the glory days of 2003 and the Eason Jordan Affair.

Crescent News Network. I like that one.

“Izi Landberg” doesn’t seem to appear anywhere on the web other than copies of this story.

Remember that scumbag Eason Jordan? He was the bureau chief for CNN in Baghdad, and went on to proudly claim it was in his best interest to NOT report Sadam’s excesses to retain access. Throw CNN out!

“That doesn’t explain why they fired four Israeli Jewish journalists (out of a crew of 8), and retained only Arab journalists. The local chief editor of CNN is now an Arab.”

Lets see. An all Muslim news agency with a direct line to
the world media (cable). Right smack in the middle of Israel.
Sounds like a spy ring in the making. Didn’t we shoot some
Chinese radio or TV station once? The proof may be when they
replace the Jews with 4 more Arabs. Lust CNN getting ready
for war.

On the bright side Israel could arrest 4 Arab journalists and CNN would be SOL.

Agreed. CNN is simply getting ready to report the upcoming war, with “objectiveness”.

I just saw something in the FR stream about this having been a faked story, or as Drudge sez, “developing”.
