NBC News freelancer and East Jerusalem resident, Mirvat al-Azzeh, has been arrested in Israel for her Facebook posts allegedly inciting violence and glorifying Hamas’ attacks. The 45-year-old journalist was detained after sharing four controversial posts about the extremist group’s ambush attack on Israel on Oct. 7, leading to her dismissal by NBC. Mirvat al-Azzeh admitted to the offenses and has fully cooperated with the Israeli police during her investigation. Her future with NBC remains uncertain, but the arrest has raised concerns about the hiring practices of mainstream US media outlets. This comes after the New York Times faced backlash for rehiring a filmmaker who publicly praised Adolf Hitler. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned Western media outlets, including Reuters, AP, CNN, and The New York Times, for collaborating with photojournalists embedded with Hamas during the Oct. 7 attack.
