Marc Lamont Hill
Marc Lamont Hill is a Professor of Media Studies and Production and of Policy, Organizational, and Leadership Studies at Temple University.
In 2018, Marc Lamont Hill was fired by CNN for his anti-Israel remarks. Speaking before the UN, Hill called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea, ” which are sentiments widely understood as a call for the elimination of the state of Israel and replacement with an Arab state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.
Hill was previously under fire for his relationship with the open anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan. He has repeatedly refused to condemn Farrakhan, stating,
“Minister Farrakhan is my brother. The idea that we have to renounce him, denounce him, throw him away … in the black tradition, I ain’t got the luxury of throwing people who love us away. I ain’t got the luxury of taking people who come out of traditions that have saved us and cleaned us and throw them away. We can’t do that. We shouldn’t do that.”
