CNN Fires Octavia Nasr
CNN fired Octavia Nasr:
I really didn't expect things to go further after yesterday's explanation, and I'm impressed that CNN is demanding a higher standard from its staff.
A CNN spokesman said Tuesday that Ms. Nasr had made an “error of judgment” that “did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” . . .
Her explanation of the Twitter message was apparently not enough for her CNN bosses. Ms. Khosravi wrote in the memo, “at this point, we believe that her credibility in her position as senior editor for Middle Eastern affairs has been compromised going forward.”

So she was stupid enough to open her mouth and reveal her true feelings. I'm sure many other reporters in the middle east feel the same and slant their coverage accordingly.
I am delighted the racist jihadist Octavia Nasr been dismissed. Let her go swim in the poisoned jihadist waters of al-jazeera. Just because a muslim is westernised it doesn't mean they are western. Nasr is not western.
