July 2010: 'On July 7, CNN fired its senior editor of Middle East affairs, Octavia Nasr, after she published a Twitter message saying, “Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah,” one of the most prominent Lebanese Shiite spiritual leaders who was involved in the founding of the Hezbollah militia. Nasr described him as “one of Hezbollah’s giants I respect a lot.”'http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/18/opinion/18friedman.html
June 2009: 'In the vetting process, CNN contacts the person who posted the material, asks questions about the content and tries to confirm its veracity.

Farsi speakers at CNN sometimes listened intently to the sound from the protest videos, discerning the accents of Iranian cities and transcribing the chants and screams.'http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/29/business/media/29coverage.html
