CNN correspondent fired over Twitter post
CNN said it let go a senior correspondent who praised in a Twitter post a Muslim cleric associated with the terror group Hezbollah.
Octavia Nasr, the U.S. cable news network's senior Middle East editor, was fired Wednesday after calling Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah a "giant" in a Twitter post after his death last weekend, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.
CNN officials and Nasr called the tweet an "error in judgment."
