We always had a faint suspicion that CNN’s Christiane Amanpour might be biased against Israel and the Jews who live there. It must have really pained her, then, to issue an on-air apology to a rabbi whose family was murdered.

Honest Reporting reports:

CNN’s top anchor Christiane Amanpour issued a public apology on her show on Monday for calling the murders of an Israeli mother and her daughters a “shootout,” following a 10-day campaign by HonestReporting that made waves around the world.

“On April 10, I referred to the murders of an Israeli family: Lucy, Maia and Rina Dee, the wife and daughters of Rabbi Leo Dee,” Amanpour said. “I misspoke and said they were killed in a ‘shootout’ instead of a shooting. I have written to Rabbi Leo Dee to apologize and make sure that he knows that we apologize for any further pain that may have caused him.”

On May 11, HonestReporting exposed an offensive throwaway comment by Amanpour during an interview with the Palestinian prime minister on her show the previous month.

And they got one.

She’s so horrible.

The murders of a mother and her two daughters by terrorists somehow became a “shootout” that the family just lost. In her mind we’re sure that’s how she imagined it.
