This is CNN? A photo editor for the struggling network resigned on Thursday night after vile, anti-Semitic statements that he tweeted prior to landing a gig at CNN resurfaced.
The now-former CNN employee, identified as Mohammed Elshamy, referred to victims killed in a terror attack as Jewish pigs on at least one occasion that was unearthed by political strategist Arthur Schwartz.
The network has accepted the resignation of a photo editor, who joined CNN earlier this year, after anti-Semitic statements hed made in 2011 came to light, CNN said in a statement to Fox News. CNN is committed to maintaining a workplace in which every employee feels safe, secure and free from discrimination regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation or religion.
When Schwartz initially unearthed the anti-Semitic tweet, he tagged CNNs verified public relations account, presumably alerting network honchos to the embarrassing past of its employee.
"Hey @CNNPR," Schwartz wrote during a series of tweets. "You should have @KFILE look into the social media activities of your employees. He might find things like this gem from CNNs @elshamyme talking about 'Jewish pigs' killed by Palestinian terrorists."

But don’t forget it’s white people who we should be afraid of according to that muzzie from where ever.
Maybe she was talking personally...............
This guy actually was on my radar as a horrible person. I can’t believe that he’s actually gone.
That witch should have back home years ago, forgive my intentional typo.
“...I cant believe that hes actually gone....”
Yeah, ‘horrible’ at the Communist News Network is a big credential......
WOW.. Listen to Joe threaten Trump at 2:02 of the video
Sorry, wrong thread...
AT&T needs to toss Jeff Zucker out the door.
He said it before they hired him. It was a Resume enhancer back then.
Now he is free to run for Congress as a Democrat.
Yep, it wouldn’t be a surprise that they knew it when hiring him but when it became known publicly he had to go.
When you consider that CNN is a CIA Mockingbird Network, it all makes sense.

Nice of them to allow him to resign instead of firing him.
Well the guy can always run to be a congressman from Minneapolis or central Michigan.
What could go wrong with hiring someone named: Mohammed Elshamy?
I thought the same thing, it’s evident they don’t do background checks.
Between a Muslim man and a Jewish pig, commend me to the latter.
Self Hater Jeffy Zucker And his guitar gently weep
