Rights group blasts 'racist' US media
A rights group has blasted some US media organisations for allowing for 'racist and hate-filled speech' during its coverage of the Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat's death.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) said it was deeply concerned with "the alarming hostility expressed by media commentators towards the Palestinian people in the wake of the death of Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat," according to a statement released this week.

The ADC said US networks MSNBC and CNN both broadcasted hostile commentary regarding Palestinians.

1. Imus's little sidekick was saying drop the bomb on them all on live TV...
...during coverage of Arafat's funeral. Called them all a bunch of animals too. I was thinking about being a Palestinian/American man listening to that on MSNBC over breakfast with his family.
