CNN Denies Firing Jewish Staff


The Cable News Network (CNN) denied, over the weekend, that it had fired Jewish staff at its Jerusalem bureau.

CNN wrote, in a Saturday blog, "Rumors that CNN is only employing Arabs in its Jerusalem Bureau are completely false. There are Israeli Jews working in CNN’s Jerusalem bureau. The bureau chief, Kevin Flower, is not Arab as some have speculated. We strongly reject any suggestion that the reorganization in the Jerusalem bureau is in any way based on the small number of contract employees concerned being Israeli, particularly given CNN’s long history of working with locals in the region."
