New NBC reporter Jenna Bush Hager should resign from UNICEF

NBC has announced that Jenna Bush Hager, the daughter of former President George W. Bush is going to be reporting for the network and its Today show. I would not have thought that story had a whole lot to do with Israel until I saw Debbie Schlussel's post that made the connection:
My problem with her reporting for NBC is that Jenna Bush Hager has a huge conflict of interest. She remains “Chair” of a UNICEF organization, UNICEF’s “Next Generation,” and she also remains a UNICEF “Young Leadership Ambassador.” Yes, that UNICEF–the anti-Israel organization that “feeds the children” of HAMAS from cradle to grave and which is controlled by the same third-world, anti-American countries which dominate the United Nations. Last year, UNICEF banned large donor Lev Leviev, because he built homes for Jews in the so-called West Bank. (Yes, UNICEF believes in redlining against Jews.) And don’t forget UNICEF’s funding of anti-Israel propaganda, Palestinian camps for kids named for homicide bombers, as acceptance of donations from the Al-Qaeda front group, International Islamic Relief Organization.

I guess it doesn’t bother her that a UNICEF goodwill ambassador, Dourade Lahhan, said her father was a “modern-day Hitler,” uttered while Lahhan was a guest of Hezbollah. But it should bother us.

Regardless, Hager needs to resign completely from UNICEF.
I've discussed UNICEF several times over the years (including the Leviev story) and Debbie is 100% right - Hager should resign the position.

Read the whole thing.

Carl - don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen or for the media to embrace objective reporting. Jenna Bush Hager is a illustration of the rotting media fish.

I was very fond of Pres. Bush, but the Bush daughters didn't appear to be the sharpest tools in the shed.

The uber leftist NBC group must be peeing in their pants to get Jenna Bush on their team.

Thanks for the run down on Unicef....I had NO idea it was that anti-Israel. No more Halloween donations from me. I should have known that any arm of the anti-Israel U.N. would also be in favor of arse kissing the arabs.
