CNN's Diana Magnay reassigned after calling Sderot residents "scum."

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. 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

  2. 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 .

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. I don’t know if I’d use the word “scum” but anyone who cheers as we sadly have to bomb civilian areas used by Hamas to perpetrate evil is not a very good person, possibly useless as the word conveys. What residents of Sderot, who have been going through utter hell these last years, should be saying is “baruch dayan emet.” To rejoice over anyone’s death, even an enemy, is not in line with the ways of righteous men.

  6. Do you know how sick In the head people have to be to cheer death? Some people posting comments on here want to wake up, that tweet has gone viral and guess who it makes look bad, I’ll give you a clue, it ain’t the CNN reporter….

  8. Neil Fanous you don’t think if you lived in Sderot you might cheer when the people who have been sending bombs over to where you, your mother, your father, sisters, brothers, aunties, uncles…children live are finally being dealt with?! They might not be cheering over people dying rather their opportunity to live without being constantly afraid to be more than 15 seconds from a bomb shelter at any given time!

  11. When her Arab lover dumps her and the Hamas get a hold of her, she will wish she could come running back to Israel. Let her stay in Gaza and don’t ever let her back into Israel. Then she can think long and hard about her reporting, that’s if she survives her treatment from her travels through arabia.

  14. Just a stupid reporter, all one can say..needs to be fired immediately..reporting is suppose to, be facts, not name callimg….makes cnn look stupid if they cant find better reporters, and i watch them,,, they can be equal with some reporters.Maylasia airline is going head to, head with Israel on top, news now in the states, maybe even more on airline being shot down than war in Israel,,

  15. Mahdi, you really need to learn more about Hitler..he killed 500 thousand people that were not Jews also. Gypsies, gays, blacks, and his foal was to clean oit coumtries like Polamd and the omes he didnt sent to camos, the non jewish ones, he put in work camps..they starved to death..He killed black skin people too..His goal was to makemthe world an Armerian race onky, blonde hair, blue eyes, white, very white skin people,, He went after the Jewishnrace mostly because he was ecil, and they are a people of God.But your brownmskin would have been killed too eventually..He killed catholic priesrs or any leadersmof anyone because only HE was the only leader..Theynfound documemts where hw also, was going after the vsticsn

  16. Malik Rasheed,, Hitler wanted a blue eye, very white skin , blonde hair race..an Armerian race,, he killed or putmin work camps 500 thoudand non jewish people also.If Hitler had seen you, you would have died,, need romread up on Hitler, you are makimg some very stupid statements….He killed blacks, gypsies, gays, anyone with a mental or physica defeat, or did terrible experiments on other european races who werent blue eyes, blonde hair, white skin..any leader like a priest or pastor, he was the ultimate leader..you would have been killed, such a stupid thing to say..he hated the Jews, he hated you too., especially if you are not white.l

  17. Mahdi, Hitler wanted an white skkn, blue eye race,, an armerian race to take over ..he went after Jews because he was of the evil, one, but he also killed, starved in work camps, took land away from people in Poland to start making way for his perfect race,, that was his total agenda..he killed blacks, gypsies, pastors, priests, ,,500 million non jewish people died under Hitlers regime, innocent civilains.and no doubt He would have killed you,,, im sure you are not white, blue eyes, and blonde hair..Such a stupid and uneducated thing to say..You really need to look up the history of Hitler before you keep condeming your own race to death if he was alive..

  18. The unfortunate Diana Magnay should be more careful when she’s reporting for any major News agency. Besides she biased professionally when she can’t see the forest for all the trees. Maybe CNN should send her reporting minor events what about Ms. Magnay covering a mayor election in Resolution, Great Slave Lake up north?

  19. So Erik Olson, it’s okay for for correspondents to report their opinions and emotional out burst (tweeting IS reporting). That’s exactly why I don’t pay attention to national news services. Most are directed by or owned out right by Soros (a Jew hater and Nazi collaborator by his own admission) . She was reassigned??? She should have been fired for calling anyone “Scum” in writing anywhere.

  20. Typical of the disingenuous nature of the Jewish Press. Concentrating on the idea that she has never used the word ‘scum’ to refer to Arabs is totally misleading. She has also never before used it to refer to Israelis! It seems blatantly obvious that she is not calling those particular men scum because they are Israeli, but rather because they were glorifying in the deaths of civilians in Gaza and threatened to bomb her car.
    There is such a quick tendency these days for certain media outlets to instantly accuse anyone who criticises any aspect of Israeli policy, the military, or (in this case) a small group of soldiers, of anti-Israeli/anti-Semitic bias. It’s not hard to see why dialogue and negotiations have proved so ineffective…
