Struggling establishment news network CNN has come under the spotlight again just days after one of its photojournalists resigned over a tweet referring to “Zionist pigs,” this time for an employee who said, “I love you Hitler.”

Karim Farid, who hosts one of the network's tech shows 'CNN Arabic,' said he was “horrified” to read his old Arabic-language tweets, which praised the Nazi dictator over the latter’s “determination in reaching his goal.”

“I was horrified to re-read some of my old tweets from 2011 during the emotional Arab spring events in Cairo."

"I have never been a supporter of Hitler or any of his beliefs and actions and these translated tweets are not a reflection of who I am and what I believe in,” he said in a statement Saturday.

He added he “deeply” apologizes and had learned from his mistake.

Just days before, Mohammed Elshamy, a 25-year-old photojournalist, resigned after one of his antisemitic tweets was flagged by an employee at Israel’s Government Press Office.

Elshamy condemned “Zionist pigs” and praised a Palestinian terror attack in which a 14-year-old girl and a Christian woman studying in Israel were killed.

“More than 4 Jewish pigs killed in #Jerusalem today by the Palestinian bomb explode. #Israel #Gaza,” he wrote.

According to CNN's spokesman Matt Dornic statement.

“The network has accepted the resignation of a photo editor, who joined CNN earlier this year after antisemitic statements he’d made in 2011 came to light."

“CNN is committed to maintaining a workplace in which every employee feels safe, secure, and free from discrimination regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion.”

Earlier this month, CNN's ratings plummeted even further in 2019 as one of its recent decisions has also brought its credibility into question.

While Fox News averaged 1.3 million viewers in the second quarter ratings for cable shows, CNN saw well below half of that with 541,000 total viewers.

The gap in primetime was even more pronounced, with Fox News as number one and CNN in 15th place, averaging 761,000 viewers to Fox’s 2.4 million.

According to Forbes, CNN’s second-quarter viewership average was 18 percent lower than in 2018.
