Timeline of Octavia Nasr


For more than 20 years, Nasr covered major stories involving the Middle East, as an on-air and off-air expert for CNN’s global platforms. Her work at the network started just after Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait where she coordinated network coverage of the Gulf War as part of CNN’s international assignment desk. Nasr won an Overseas Press Club Award in 2002. In 2003, she managed a 15-member Arab desk which coordinated coverage of the Iraq war and was executive producer of CNN’s Arab Voices.

A CNN spokesman responded saying that “CNN regrets any offense her Twitter message caused. It did not meet CNN’s editorial standards.” The following day, on July 7, an internal CNN memo announcing Nasr’s departure, CNN International’s senior vice president for newsgathering, Parisa Khosravi, wrote, “We believe that her credibility in her position as senior editor for Middle Eastern affairs has been compromised going forward.”


Articles and commentaries following Nasr’s sacking have been divided. Thomas Friedman was also among the many who were troubled by the decision, saying that the decision undermined the network’s credibility and sent the wrong signal to young people entering journalism. He wrote “I find Nasr’s firing troubling.” He questioned CNN’s reaction by asking, “To begin with, what has gotten into us? One misplaced verb now and within hours you can have a digital lynch mob chasing after you—and your bosses scrambling for cover”. In response, Mediaite’s Dan Abrams asked “Can you imagine what would happen to a U.S. journalist expressing admiration for an Al Qaeda leader who had other, better, attributes?” Glen Greenwald in Salon.com wrote, “That message spawned an intense fit of protest from Far Right outlets, Thought Crime enforcers, and other neocon precincts, and CNN quickly (and characteristically) capitulated to that pressure by firing her.”

Greenwald referred to Fadlallah as “one of the Shiite world’s most beloved religious figures”, highlighting how the world viewed him including many in the west as shown in the Time Magazine’s choice of Man of the year 2010 Fond Farewell. Others expressed concern over what they viewed as similar incidents, most notably Hearst syndicated columnist Helen Thomas retiring under criticism one month earlier.


On the Huffington Post, columnist Magda Abu-Fadil wrote about coordinated online efforts to protest Nasr’s comments and push for her dismissal. In a 2012 interview, Nasr noted, “Without an upfront commitment from the employer to stand by and protect employees from astroturfing and negative publicity, my advice to employees is not to use social media on behalf of their employer, period.”


Following the death of Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah on July 4, 2010, Nasr tweeted on the same day that she was, “Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah.. One of Hezbollah’s giants I respect a lot…”


She is the recipient of the 2006 Excellence in Journalism award from the Lebanese-American Chamber of Commerce and was awarded CNN World Report’s 2003 Achievement Award. She received the Edward R. Murrow for Continuing Coverage of the 2006 war in Lebanon; and the Golden Cable ACE Award in 1993 for CNN’s coverage of the Gulf War.
