Nasr's 20-year career at CNN ended Wednesday after a tweet mourning the death of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, a Lebanese Shiite cleric whom she called "one of Hezbollah's giants I respect a lot."
Facing a rash of criticism, she explained her tweet in a blog post, saying her respect was based on Fadlallah's advocacy for women's rights.
But by then, it was too late. CNN put out a statement a few hours later, saying her "credibility" had been "compromised."
Her credibility is "compromised?" What about Wolf Blitzer who worked for AIPAC, the openly anti-arab Jerusalem Post, and is a staunch supporter of Israel? Doesn't his obvious bias wreck his credibility? (rhetorical question, of course, as he already lost his years ago).
