CNN: Rehire Marc Lamont Hill

On November 29, 2018, Dr. Marc Lamont Hill was fired from CNN for a speech he gave to the United Nations in support of Palestinian rights. 

Help us tell CNN they did the wrong thing. Tell CNN to rehire Dr. Hill! 


Dear CNN,

You made the wrong choice by firing Marc Lamont Hill for his speech at the UN, which included the phrase "from the river to the sea." Speaking up for Palestinian rights is not anti-semitic or a threat to Israelis.

As Dr. Hill said in regard to the speech he gave to the UN that caused him to be fired:

“My reference to “river to the sea” was not a call to destroy anything or anyone. It was a call for justice, both in Israel and in the West Bank/Gaza. The speech very clearly and specifically said those things. No amount of debate will change what I actually said or what I meant.”

Dr. Hill’s speech received a long ovation from the diplomats at the UN.

Marc Lamont Hill is a powerful defender of civil and human rights for all people. He is a powerful ally for the Palestinian people who live under siege, under military occupation and under state laws of discrimination.

As people concerned with freedom for the Palestinian people and justice and equality for all people, we ask that you immediately rehire Marc Lamont Hill.

    To fire someone who speaks the truth is reprehensible. Rehire him. You need brave, Independent, truth telling people on staff.

    Marc Lamont Hill was merely speaking truth to power. His opinion has a right to be heard on a major news network that purports to present a range of opinions. His eloquence and knowledge of the issues he speaks to are far beyond that of many of your commentators. He needs to be on the air.

    Responding to the speaking up for Palestinians’ rights with ad-hominem is like calling Kaepernick anti-cop/American/USA for demanding the state STOP killing its black citizens and awarding the murderer with paid administrative leave. But I guess that’s par for the course with some individuals. CNN should be more careful about its brand image. To most millennials CNN is not much different from Fox.
