Default CNN Fires Marc Lamont Hill Over Israel Comments

What a "surprise" ultra Leftist and Temple professor Marc Lamont Hill has been fired from his part time job as as an on air contributor.

Quote:
CNN on Thursday severed ties with contributor Marc Lamont Hill over his comments about Israel during a United Nations speech. “We have an opportunity to not just offer solidarity in words but to commit to political action, grass-roots action, local action and international action that will give us what justice requires and that is a free Palestine from the river to the sea,” Hill said, with the last nine words provoking widespread outrage. “Marc Lamont Hill is no longer under contract with CNN,” a network spokesperson confirmed to Mediaite.

This wasn't the first time Hill had been fired. Back in 2010 Fox News gave Hill the boot for his defense of cop killers and radical Leftists.

CNN swooped in to hire Hill. Must have been his qualifications.

Quote:
By his own account, Hill is an expert on “hip-hop culture,” i.e., rap music. His academic degree is in education.

Of course Leftists don't have to have actual qualifications to make comments as an expert analyst. It speaks to CNN'S corruption that they hired and retained Hill for as long as they did.

well yeah, free Palestine. But these shows are entertainment with some news stories and pundits. Fox is the worst IMHO. But read NYT and WaPo. That is real news.
Houston Chronicle, Chicago Tribune are good also. Always check a story that sounds outlandish or enrages you.

You consider them real news because they slant their stories to match your world view. I consider them part of the propaganda arm of the corrupt deep state.

no I consider them news because they risked jail and closure to tell the truth.

Being threatened with imprisonment is not a bases upon which to judge a news organizations intent or honesty. By that standard, you would have included Fox News as James Rosen was in legal jeopardy for simply reporting on North Korea's intention to test nuclear weapons in 2009.

Most of the real word judges honesty by the standard of reporting all of the news free of bias, not just that which promotes ones agenda. By this standard, the agencies you cited are far from "real news".

How smarmy is CNN?...

They fired Hill WITHOUT releasing a statement as to WHY...

The reason they fired Hill is obvious, but CNN knows that denouncing Hill's derogatory comments on Israel with an official statement would piss off the Left...Denouncing attacks on Israel would make every college campus go ballistic...

...so they just said "We fired Marc Lamont Hill...Have a nice day...Nothing else to see here like `reasons`...Say `hi` to the kids!"...

A free Palestine would mean the Palestinians took their land back after it was stolen by Jordan.
