NPR affiliate pulls show after guest doubted that Hamas killed women, children during terror attacks

Boston’s NPR station, WBUR, pulled a program from national distribution on Monday after a professor “expressed doubt that women and children had been killed by Hamas” during the terror group’s surprise attack on Israel. 

“Today’s episode of ‘On Point’ did not meet our editorial standards. It is paramount to acknowledge when our work falls short of our standards,” the NPR station wrote in a statement. 

The program featured Khaled Hroub, a professor at Northwestern University in Qatar and a research associate at the Centre of Islamic Studies at the University of Cambridge.

 

Fox News’ Lawrence Richard, Greg Norman and Nikolas Lanum contributed to this report.
