CNN's "Ravings"

An article in the Jerusalem Post comments on how a former Jerusalem bureau chief skewed CNN coverage against Israel:

Much of the blame for the Jerusalem bureau's Israeli government-alleged pro-Palestinian bias has been put on Robert Wiener, who became the bureau chief in the late 1980s.

An ex-CNN source charged to the Post that Wiener changed the sign under the office clock from "Jerusalem" to "Palestine," and so "ranted and raved" against Israel as to end up "influencing the coverage."
