After being discovered by Honest Reporting, the “TeamHitler” producer is cut off from CNN.
Idris Muktar Ibrahim, a CNN producer, recently admitted to belonging to “#TeamHitler” on Twitter and calling Hamas terrorists “freedom [sic] fighters… defending [sic] their home,” according to a monitoring NGO.
A spokesman for CNN instantly told us that the problem was under investigation after HonestReporting informed them of their producer’s inflammatory social media past, according to Honest Reporting.
The NGO claimed that after a deafening quiet, “we began to doubt whether CNN was serious about dealing with an employee who idolized Adolf Hitler and showered admiration on a terrorist outfit.”
The group urged its supporters to speak with CNN about the situation. Soon after, CNN responded to HonestReporting:
Idris worked for CNN as a freelancer.
These tweets, which were posted before we started working with him, were not known to us. We have told him we won’t collaborate with him going forward.
“We at HonestReporting will continue to make sure that those who call for the elimination of the Jewish people will not cover the news about the Jewish state,” stated Gil Hoffman, executive director of HonestReporting.
