MSNBC news anchor Chris Hayes is receiving plaudits from human rights defenders and other progressive journalists after airing a segment on Wednesday night which offered a rare example of a major U.S. cable news outlet providing critical coverage of Israeli crimes against Palestinians. While most network and cable news outlets have either ignored the story, or offered uncritical or equivocated coverage, of last Friday's mass shooting of more than 750 Palestinian protesters along the Gaza border by Israeli snipers, Hayes' segment included a harsh condemnation of the disproportionate, unjustifiable, and 'unconscionable' use of force.
