CNN is welcoming a new reporter to the company as the cable news channel announced that Rahel Solomon is joining CNN International as a correspondent. 

Solomon will report on global business news across CNNI and other CNN networks and platforms in her correspondent role, which will see her based out of New York.

The new CNN international correspondent brings experience to the position as she comes over from CNBC, where her reporting appeared on many television and digital programs, including “The News with Shepard Smith,” “Halftime Report,” and “Power Lunch.” 

Before arriving at the national news scene, Solomon also spent time at the local level, serving as a morning news anchor for CBS3 in her hometown of Philadelphia, PA.

Furthermore, joining CNN in this new position marks her return to the company. In 2012, Solomon worked as an intern for CNN’s Special Investigations Unit in Washington, DC. 

During Solomon’s time at CNN over a decade ago, she worked alongside Drew Griffin and Scott Bronstein on their inquiry into delays in treatment veterans encountered at VA hospitals and helped with the network’s 2012 midterm election night coverage.

Mehdi Hasan: ‘Liberal Media’ Downplayed New Italian Prime Minister’s ‘Ties to Fascism’

“How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things?”

MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan took aim at the “quote unquote liberal media” for its lack of criticism of new Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and her ties to fascism.

The Mehdi Hasan Show host began Sunday’s show by defending a recent tweet discussing Meloni’s victory in Italy’s election, and the problematic nature of some of her comments.

He mentioned he expected Republicans to embrace the new Italian Prime Minister, saying they are “at best, to quote the President, semi-fascist themselves”.

Hasan continued by saying “what has been so depressing, is just how much of the quote unquote liberal media — the mainstream media — are giving her a pass or playing down her and her party’s fascist roots, focusing more on the fact that she is female, and less on the fact that she is a fascist. That has been deeply, deeply depressing to see.”

He concluded by equating headlines from The Washington Post and The New York Times, among others, to those surrounding the 2020 election that said Donald Trump wouldn’t participate in a coup attempt.

“Look, I have a humble suggestion for many of my colleagues in the quote unquote liberal media,” Hasan said while he ended his monologue. “How about in the year 2022 we stop playing down, minimizing, whitewashing people who literally say or do fascist things? People who want to overturn elections and ban Muslims. People who, as in the case of Italy’s next Prime Minister, spout great replacement theory, while running a political party that has a direct connection back to Benito Mussolini himself? Can we try doing that? Please?”

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld expressed outrage at the way some media outlets cover stories of random violence being carried out against innocent people. 

During “The Five” on Friday, Gutfeld said that he believed the viewing public is becoming numb to stories in which innocent people are hurt. 

“These things are happening with such mundane patterns or activity that we’ve gotten used to it,” he said. “Also, the media is not interested in [covering] it. We are doing it, but I don’t think this is on MSNBC or CNN, but I don’t know that because I don’t watch them.” 

Gutfeld was referencing the story of a New York City Emergency Medical Service, Lt. Alison Russo-Elling, who was stabbed to death by a random stranger. Russo-Elling was heralded for her service during 9/11. She worked for the city for 25 years.  

“It seems like the mainstream media is too interested in racism, activism, and pronouns and then when they do their stories, they just go onto Twitter to see how clever they can be.” 

“This woman survived 9/11 but couldn’t survive a trip to the bodega,” he said. “The crazy person aspect is becoming this thing with every story.” 

Gutfeld added that elected officials care about stories like this when their job is up. 

“They don’t care about people in marginal populations like the drug addicted or homeless,” he added. “The people that are committing a lot of these crimes are complete cowards.”
