In media news, a columnist with The Guardian newspaper says he was fired after writing a sarcastic tweet criticizing U.S. military aid to Israel. Nathan Robinson, who edits the journal Current Affairs, had written for The Guardian since 2017. But his column was discontinued after the editor-in-chief of The Guardian US criticized a Twitter post of Robinson’s that mockingly claimed all U.S. spending bills must include money to buy weapons for Israel. The Guardian has denied Robinson was fired, saying it regularly reviews its lineup of columnists. The U.S. on average gives Israel $3.8 billion in military aid every year — larger than any other country.
