CNN refused to show Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech at embassy opening — here’s why

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave an inspiring speech at the opening ceremony of the new US Embassy in Jerusalem Monday, saying “What a glorious day. Remember this moment! … President Trump, by recognizing history, you have made history. All of us are deeply moved. All of us are deeply grateful.” [Watch the speech here.]

CNN refused to cover Natanyahu’s live speech, cutting away instead to coverage of protests and riots in Gaza. “They go and show the smoke billowing and say, ‘This is what happens when you decide to recognize Israel’,” said Glenn Beck on today’s “The News and Why it Matters.”
