CNN fired Marc Lamont Hill for saying Palestinians deserve equal rights

Marc Lamont Hill, a professor at Temple University and a fierce advocate for equality, was perhaps the strongest, most articulate and most passionate voice against racism and bigotry among CNN’s regular contributors.

The Obama-Nation

The Gaza bloodbath

In a rare moment of honesty, the New York Times divulged the real motive behind the bombardment and invasion of Gaza: "to reach a situation in which we do not allow Hamas to govern."
