As Twitchy told you, CNN fired commentator Marc Lamont Hill in the wake of his most recent anti-Israel, anti-Semitic remarks. Can yo guess how the Washington Post covered it?

If you guessed like this, come and collect your prize:

Well, that’s certainly one take on what happened.

Think the headline’s bad? Check out the actual “analysis”:

Hill, a media studies professor at Temple University, had drawn scrutiny for calling for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea.” The words drew criticism from some conservatives and staunch Israel advocates, who said such remarks echoed language used by Hamas and other groups that seek to eliminate Israel.

Some mainstream Jewish groups, including the Anti-Defamation League, expressed frustration with Hill’s remarks, which also included endorsing the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel. Fox News also fanned the flames.

See, the real victim here is Hill, who was forced to defend himself from very valid charges of anti-Semitism:

Hill has been pushing back against the criticism, arguing that the detractors were ascribing to his statements meaning that wasn’t there.


Almost as if it’s not serious journalism.
