CNN Reporter Deletes Tweet After Calling Nearby Israelis ‘Scum’

CNN journalist, reporting from border with Gaza, refers to some Israelis as "scum," then deletes tweet.

CNN international correspondent Diana Magnay hurriedly deleted a tweet she sent out referring to Israelis as ‘scum.’ But she did not delete it before 247 others retweeted it, and 49 favorited it. And then the retweets were retweeted, and now it’s all over the globe.

So why did Magnay refer to some Israelis as ‘scum’?

She is covering the Gaza-Israel conflict, and is in Sderot, which is on the border with Gaza. Her tweet explains it all:

CNN's Diana Magnay deleted this tweet after sending it. Too late.

A cursory look through Magnay’s twitter feed does not reveal her ever referring to Palestinian Arabs as “scum,” when they hand out candy when Israelis or Americans are killed.  She even covered the trial of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik and, although she didn’t seem to like him much, never referred to him with negative terms.

Magnay has not yet responded to a request for comment.

  1. why do these wackjobs always end up on the liberal media outlets. HINT to media: HIRE SOME NORMAL REPORTERS FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE

  2. cnn should fire her….

  3. David Ring says:

    Anyone that cheers death and murder is not worthy of being called scum.

  4. Man, I miss the days of just “reporting” the news. We don’t want opinion especially biased ones. Can you imagine if she had called them the N-word? She would be out of a job so quick…but you know, its just those Jews. :/

  5. Rick Sawyer says:

    Israel should ban all CNN staff from the country.

  6. Avis Johnson says:

    She’s drunk ! I’ve never seen her do a story where she wasn’t totally blitzed ! You combine pure ignorance with booze and this is the hag you get! Get off the air and on to the streets .. that’s where she came from . Put the trash back in the bin

  7. bias journalists need to be thrown out, she is scum

  8. Avis Johnson says:

    True ! But you can’t really call what this booze hound does .. Reporting

  9. Avis Johnson says:

    Let her to Cairo !

  10. She is the kind of blond virgins Hamas is looking for

  11. Avis, that is why I had it in quotation marks. It is not reporting. :)

  15. Jay Grosflam says:

    CNN is Fox Light.

  16. thanks for exposing her.

  17. No surprise here. It is CNN & they are not what I would call “supporters” of Israel.

  18. Debbie Woods says:

    Should be suspended without pay for thirty days. Might think twice before she tweets stupidly again. Or maybe transfer her to Syria since she’s anti-semitic!

  19. CNN is bias.
    Wolf Blitzer didn’t stop to ask about the 4 boys killed.
    How in the world in a war I would leave my children playing outside .
    11.000 children died in Syria and they didnt not show to much outraged .
    Israel has to sit and die.
    I stop to watch CNN because I don’t trust them.
    I just want to know the truth .

  20. Leor Zafdia says:

    CNN. Anyone surprised??

  21. Brian Cull says:

    The Calling of Abram
    …2And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; 3And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

  22. Send her to a desk in antartica

  23. This journalist needs to lose their job post haste. If I were their boss they would.

  24. David Cohen says:

    All I hear from the Arabs and Muslims on this post is hate and lies. I know there are good one’s out there, I have met some.

  25. Kim Sloan says:

    Launch her to Gaza and let her see who the scum is! She doesn’t know the constant threat that Gazan terrorists have put on Serdot and the other border towns. She doesn’t have relatives or friends who were murdered, kidnapped, or raped, and bombed by these Hamas and Pali’s. Shame on her! She is unprofessional and should keep her anti semitic tweets to herself and her nazi friends. I hope she gets fired!

  26. Kim Sloan says:

    All people named Hassan are scum and should live in a terror tunnel.

  27. Sally Penso says:

    I am finding wedemans reporting really weak and full of bias. She should be taken out of this assignment

  28. Facebook is the sole source for my news for this very reason. I can choose who I find credible.

  29. David Cohen says:

    In addition, if they comment on English, they should check that their spelling and grammar are correct.

  30. I emailed cnn to complain.

  31. she should be fired immediately. but that probably will not happen.

  32. Dani Katz says:
