The Juan Williams treatment: five other ousted media personalities
"Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah… One of Hezbollah's giants I respect a lot."
Hezbollah, of course, is considered a terrorist organization by the United States. CNN's statement on the matter called Nasr's tweet "an error in judgment," and an internal memo said Nasr's "credibility in her position as senior editor for Middle Eastern affairs has been compromised going forward.”
In a blog post apologizing for the remark, Nasr wrote that she was not praising Fadlallah's life work, but rather appreciating his "pioneering stand among Shia clerics on woman's rights."
