It’s difficult to imagine a major mainstream media company – which wholeheartedly supports Jew-hating Ilhan Omar while also deriding Israel – would hire a proud, overtly anti-Semitic employees, but CNN did exactly that.
A CNN photo editor resigned Thursday after anti-Semitic tweets surfaced from 2011, CNN told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Mohammed Elshamy, a photo editor for CNN, was hired by the news outlet in 2019, according to an announcement on his Twitter. Elshamy was found to have anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and anti-police tweets from 2011 on his official Twitter account. The tweets included messages that called for people to be murdered and others referring to Jewish people as “pigs.”
Elshamy had tweets which referred to both Jewish people and police as “pigs” as well as comments that were anti-Israel.
This bears repeating, but Elshamy was proudly posting these despicable racist and anti-Semitic tweets for eight years, and CNN did nothing – nothing – about it. It makes you wonder if Jeff Zucker and the rest of CNN’s employees agree with Elshamy’s sentiments.
