CNN Fires Editor After Hezbollah Twitter Message – NYTimes.com

Ms. Nasr, a 20-year veteran of the network, wrote on Twitter after the cleric died on Sunday, “Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah … One of Hezbollah’s giants I respect a lot.” The ayatollah routinely denounced the United States and supported suicide bombings against Israel.

What an inappropriate thing for her to tweet– though I would be interested in reading a fuller explanation of what she was thinking about the deceased Shiite cleric.
