Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace commended several staff members for their exceptional work covering the Israel conflict. Network leaders specifically praised the outstanding reporting of Greg Palkot, Mike Tobin, and Lucas Tomlinson as they covered crucial regions of Israel.

“Dear colleagues, after a harrowing two weeks of coverage in Israel, we wanted to extend our appreciation and recognition of the many employees we have in the field who have been working around the clock under excruciating circumstances,” an internal memo stated.

“Steve Harrigan’s arrival in Beirut last week strengthened our coverage further, and he delivered his usual remarkable reporting. Maddy Rivera is there for Fox News edge as well, delivering crucial coverage for Fox affiliates,” the memo read.

“Additionally, John Roberts just finished a weeklong assignment of excellent anchoring at all hours with Trace Gallagher is now on the ground for Fox News at night and all major programming.”

The note from Wallace and Scott also specifically highlighted the work of correspondent Trey Yingst and his team, saying “We’ve all been in awe of their tremendous work”.

Fox News says the hard work that had gone into covering the war has been widely recognized and received well-deserved acclaim throughout the company.

“Needless to say, we are extremely proud of the entire on and off-air team we have in the field, each of whom are reporting the first draft of history on this monumental story.”

Jake Tapper: ‘My Faith Only Guides My Journalism’

“I know what it’s like to be a religious minority so I apply that across the board.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper is one of the country’s most high-profile Jewish anchors and recently spoke with colleague Oliver Darcy for a lengthy interview.

Among the topics was the rise of antisemitism across the globe, and Darcy asked whether Tapper has seen a spike in bigoted attacks toward him. The CNN host notes what it’s like to be a religious minority and applies it to the way he covers the news.

“My faith only guides my journalism in the sense that I know what it’s like to be a religious minority so I apply that across the board to Muslims, Mormons, Catholics, and to everyone else,” Tapper told Darcy. “I don’t assume that because someone is of one particular faith that they have certain views.

“That’s about it. I see the war as a journalist and as a human. I want the human suffering to end now. And I would prefer a world where all peoples can live with democracy and self-determination. 

“This is a time where antisemitism is without a doubt on the rise and I’ve certainly seen an uptick online, but ugly words are just that: words. It’s nothing compared to what the people in Israel and Gaza and the West Bank are currently going through.”

Jake Tapper was recently in the news regarding his Jewish faith after radio host Mark Levin called media figures like Wolf Blitzer, Tapper, and MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell “self-hating Jews”. In response, both CNN and the White House condemned the comments from Levin.
