Monday’s edition of MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily featured criticism of the network’s coverage of the conflict in Gaza by one of its own paid contributors, Newsweek’s Rula Jebreal.
RULA JEBREAL: “We are biased when it comes to this issue. Look how many (sic) air time Netanyahu and his folks have on air on a daily basis — Andrea Mitchell and others. I never see one Palestinian being interviewed on these same issues..
RONAN FARROW: “I’m going to push back a little on that. We’ve had Palestinian voices on our air.”
JEBREAL: “Maybe for 30 seconds, and then you have 25 minutes for Bibi Netanyahu.”
Jebreal then mentioned NBC’s decision to pull Ayman Mohyeldin from Gaza, a decision NBC reversed after media critics questioned the move and an ensuing backlash on social media.
Jebreal tweeted on Monday night that her upcoming television appearances have been cancelled. MSNBC has not responded to requests to confirm that claim.
