Why don't America's media members want to acknowledge Jerusalem as being the capital of Israel?
On CNN Newsroom Friday, Ashleigh Banfield actually said, "Rockets fired at Jerusalem. It is not the capital at this point, but it is the disputed center of the universe so to speak when it comes to Israel" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
CNN's Ashleigh Banfield: Jerusalem 'Is Not The Capital' of Israel
ASHLEIGH BANFIELD: Soon on this program we're going to be able to have a conversation with the Mayor of Jerusalem. We are working that interview up for you live. Again, the extraordinary development here: rockets fired at Jerusalem. It is not the capital at this point, but it is the disputed center of the universe so to speak when it comes to Israel. And for the first time since the 1970s, rockets now fired at that major city just two hours drive away from Tel Aviv where they have been enduring several days now of this. And the air raid sirens are now going off in both of these cities. So this continues, and we will stay on it throughout this entire hour.
Jerusalem "is not the capital at this point?"
What is, Ashleigh?
Of course, Banfield wasn't the only media member having problems with her nations' capitals Friday.
As Politico reported, the Associated Press also seemed Jerusalem-challenged.
Must be something in the water.
She’s another idiot.
I have no idea who Ashleigh is but nobody that incredibly ignorant belongs in a “news” organization (which is supposed to inform us about things)
If I recall correctly, just a couple of months ago, the press could not get Obama’s press secretary to confirm that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.
Because then she would have to admit that the Jewish people have a right to their homeland.
I remember when she was doing local news here in Dallas, she’s originally from Canada (which probably explains a lot).
These ids know if they say something it is in people’s minds. You know, like say, a video made in the USA was the reason for trouble in Benghazi. May I say again, oh say 5 times on different shows, a VIDEO was responsible for the trouble in Benghazi. Same with this broad and the Jerusalem statement. But, my guess is with all this current trouble brewing, that may change soon.
CNN is not a news network. Idiots abound!
Oh, and I see that under her picture, 30 Rock’s Liz Lemon is set to wed. Great news! Is she marrying a dude or her life partner?
Who told you that Ashleigh? Obama?
Here’s a clue ash
We’re are all the countries main government buildings, activities, and officials.
Get back to us when you figure it out.
Yeah, I remember her in Dallas! I had forgotten that.
How I miss Texas...
The pain you feel today is the strength you'll have tomorrow.
That was my understanding as well, she used to sing in a rock band in bars I recall, definitely looked like the type who “got around.”
Ashleigh, I believe it’s their call.
I am sure I could come up with many tales in I did inquire...isn’t that the way those folks work against the rest of us?
