CBS News shamed for post on Gaza hospital blast suggesting Israel at fault: ‘Did Hamas write this tweet?’

The “CBS Evening News” was roasted Wednesday night for a social media post that suggested Israel was to blame for the explosion that rocked the al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza City despite President Biden and the Israeli government saying otherwise. 

“CBS Evening News” wrote on X, the platform formally known as Twitter, that the “humanitarian crisis in Gaza continues to grow following a hospital explosion that killed hundreds. CBS News spoke to a doctor who says Israel’s army had previously warned the facility to evacuate.”  

The quickly ridiculed CBS post accompanied a video in which a Gaza woman said they got “bombed,” and the CBS News reporter put an emphasis on Palestinian claims that an Israeli rocket previously struck the hospital. CBS then spoke with a doctor who suggested Israel was at fault, and put a spotlight on injured children before finally mentioning that President Biden said the Israeli military is not to blame more than a minute into the video.
