that the Newseum is tarnishing its image by including two scummy men in their database just because they were "journalists":
A spokesperson for the museum said the two, who died in an Israeli airstrike on their vehicle in Gaza last November, would remain on its roll of slain reporters despite protests from Israel’s embassy in Washington.
“Hussam Salama and Mahmoud Al-Kumi were cameramen in a car clearly marked “TV.”’ a spokesperson for the museum said. “The Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders and The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers all consider these men journalists killed in the line duty.”
Earlier on Friday, the embassy asked the museum to remove their names saying they were members of Hamas, which Israel and the U.S. have designated as a terror group.
“Memorializing Al Aqsa TV terrorists hurts the integrity of reporters operating w/journalistic values,” the Israeli embassy wrote on its official Twitter account. ”@Newseum please take a 2nd look.”
But I guess they won't be. CPJ, RWB and WANNP are also hurting their reps by siding with those monsters simply because of their alleged career.
