The Corner

The one and only.

Another Failure of Free Speech


Octavia Nasr, late of CNN, was purged because she Tweeted some positive comments about Hezbollah’s favorite cleric, Mohammed Hossein Fadlallah. 

Did anyone have any doubts about Ms. Nasr’s sympathies? Not really;  it was probably one of the reasons she was a CNN fixture. So why fire her for belaboring the obvious?

Maybe it has something to do with Sunnis and Shias . . .
