Not So Fair & Balanced
The Middle East Media Research Institute reports that Kuntar — who shot an Israeli child's father in front of her and then beat her to death with his rifle in 1979 — was given a hero's welcome on the network.
One interviewer said, "You deserve even more than this. I think that 11,000 prisoners — if they can see this program now — are celebrating your birthday with you. Happy birthday."
Kuntar, who was part of that Israel-Hezbollah prisoner swap last week, was then presented with a cake and a collage of photos, including one of him and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah. And as Kuntar cut into his cake the network set off fireworks.
