Journalist Word of the Night: Scum

Instead of my usual Photo of the Day, this time I have to share instead the Word of the Night: “scum.”

First CNN correspondent Diana Magnay, reporting  from Israel used “scum” in her tweet to describe Israelis cheering the IDF bombing of terror locations. She then deleted it, making a story that was picked up and written about already in many places.

Around the same time last night, I asked a simple question on Twitter to someone who was praising rallies (riots) against Israel in Turkey instigated by IHH.

I certainly was surprised and unprepared to get this answer within minutes:

tweet anti Israel

Another one of those anti-Israel trolls who have been out in full force this week I thought. Then this happened:

Capture  zionist scum

Within seconds it was being retweeted, but I had enough and went to sleep.

This morning I found that the author of “Get lost you Zionist scum”

image tweet against Israel

was not an everyday troll, but a “British-Turkish journalist.”

FYI, dear journalists with obvious limited knowledge

this is scum.

#TurksWhoHateJews or #JournalistSayingScum, all leave a bad odor.


About Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last seven years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets

      CNN was the top of the piece, many have written on her scum comment, this was to show she is NOT alone using the word. Certainly a little more sophistication should be shown.

        I actually applaud bigots, racists, Jew haters, Nazis and other progressives telling us what they are openly so as to remove all doubt. I’ve never understood for instance, Holocaust Deniers who still worship Hitler. Kind of makes him a piker, no?

          We do where he stands that is quite clear, with no journalistic responsibility shown. I have met Turkish journalists in Jerusalem, Israel all are fine people doing their job.

            Again though – if you’re going to do a reporters job while screaming good old Nazi tropes, then by all means at least do it from the Nazi homeworld.

    The left-leaning media = enemy combatants in all but name

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Why doesn’t Israel revoke Magnay’s credentials and declare her an undesirable alien?

    • CableLegend

      CNN already pulled her from covering Israel anymore.

      • Jim from Iowa

        CNN did the right thing. Posting that tweet was unprofessional.

        • CableLegend

          I agree. The amount of anti Israel ” journalists” working their way to mainstream news organizations is shocking.

          • Sharon A

            Objectivity has gone out the window, as more rockets keep coming to break them.

      • Sharon A

        Yes, seems CNN sent Magnay to Moscow. I will refrain from any politically incorrect comments, with great difficulty though.
