MSNBC Guest Who Slammed Israel Coverage Claims Upcoming TV Appearances Cancelled
Rula Jebreal, the MSNBC contributor who called out the network on the air today over its Israel coverage, tweeted earlier today that her upcoming television appearances have been cancelled, possibly due to those rather noteworthy comments.
During an appearance on Ronan Farrow‘s show today, Jebreal lambasted NBC and MSNBC for “disgustingly biased” coverage of Israel. She argued that the networks are giving disproportionate amounts of time to let people like Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speak, while pro-Palestinian voices are either marginalized or not given a chance to speak at all.
Hours after that appearance, Jebreal sent out this tweet, wondering if it’s really just a coincidence:
My forthcoming TV appearances have been cancelled! Is there a link between my expose and the cancellation?what about you @EliLake ?

For the record, this was Eli Lake‘s response:
@rulajebreal i didn’t have any forthcoming TV appearances to cancel.
