Order Discount Synaral

The article neglects to also include the termination of CNN veteran anchor Octavia Nasr, order discount synaral who was fired by CNN in July over a Tweet tribute she paid to a respected leader of  the Hezbollah. Order discount synaral Is The Firing Of Thomas, order discount synaral Sanchez And Williams Censorship? http://www.alan.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/helen_thomas-297x300.jpg http://www.charged.mobi/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/rick-sanchez2.jpg http://crooksandliars.com/files/uploads/2007/09/juan-williams.jpg                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                by Gilbert Mercier In the past five months, order discount synaral three firings of high profile journalists by their respective news outlets have raised some serious questions about what is left of the freedom of the press in the US main steam media. The firings also raise questions about defining the blurry journalistic lines between analysis, order discount synaral commentary and opinion. It started with the firing of veteran White House correspondent Helen Thomas in June, order discount synaral than the one of Rick Sanchez by CNN a couple of weeks ago, order discount synaral and finally the firing of Juan Williams by NPR last week. The three cases have a lot in common. Order discount synaral Thomas, order discount synaral Sanchez and Williams all committed the “sin” of expressing their respective own opinions, order discount synaral not on their regular beats but as guests on other broadcasting venues. And this raises the key question here: In our current toxic and biased US news landscape are journalists allowed to express their own views? Back in June, order discount synaral our own Liam Fox at News Junkie Post reported in his story “Helen Thomas: No Apologies Necessary”, order discount synaral about the hasty firing of Thomas over her comments on Israel’s behavior towards the Palestinians. “Helen Thomas statements were about policy, order discount synaral not people, order discount synaral and for that, order discount synaral we should have not lost her. Order discount synaral To liken what Thomas has said to racist rants inviting African-Americans to return to Africa is disingenuous at best, order discount synaral and more directly, order discount synaral a twisted misinterpretation designed only to silence opposing views to Israeli expansionism, order discount synaral” wrote Liam Fox in his June article. What was worse in the case of Thomas is that the White House had an explicit hand in it, order discount synaral and by doing so the Obama administration attacked not only the freedom of the press but even Helen Thomas’ freedom of speech. Both Thomas and Sanchez committed what is a crime of lese majeste in the United States media: speaking out against Israel, order discount synaral and the country’s border line criminal policies towards Palestinians. In the case of Rick Sanchez, order discount synaral the firing came after a comment he made concerning the control of America’s media by Jews. Order discount synaral The reason used  to quickly give the ax to both journalists was that both made “anti-Semitic” remarks. In either cases, order discount synaral the opinions expressed by  Thomas and Sanchez were not an attack on Jews, order discount synaral as a people or a religious group, order discount synaral but a critic of the state of Israel. For Sanchez, order discount synaral he was merely expressing the complete biased in favor of Israel that is chronic  in the US media. Order discount synaral But apparently, order discount synaral the board of  CNN’s corporate master do not make a distinction between anti-Semites and journalists who dare to critic Israel. If the firing of Thomas and Sanchez had to do with Israel and Jews, order discount synaral the one of Williams has to do with comments he made about Muslims on Fox News. Order discount synaral NPR considered Williams’ anti-Islamic view to be “bigotry”, order discount synaral and not acceptable coming from an NPR  Senior News Analyst. But NPR, order discount synaral who claims to be non-biased and “objective”, order discount synaral by their clumsy reaction and the firing of Williams have made itself a bit less credible as a serious news organization. Order discount synaral Instead of firing Juan Williams, order discount synaral they could have changed his title from Senior News Analyst to Senior News Commentator which would have giving him the ability to express his opinions, order discount synaral regardless of their merit, order discount synaral in a much more open way. Regardless of anyone’s political opinions about Israel, order discount synaral Jews and Muslims, order discount synaral what CNN and NPR lost in the process is credibility as news organizations. Journalists should be able to speak out without being concerned of getting fired, order discount synaral and this is not only an issue of freedom of the press but also one of freedom of speech. Whatever ways  the respective news outlets want to spin it to justify the firings, order discount synaral it does amount to censorship.  The original article can be found at: http://newsjunkiepost.com/2010/10/24/press-is-the-firing-of-thomas-sanchez-and-williams-censorship/
