Halper had worked for The Hill TV for three years when she was terminated over a dispute with a higher up regarding a monologue in which she defended Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s description of Israel as an apartheid state. Halper joins The Marc Steiner Show to discuss her firing, the all-around censorship campaign against voices critical of Israel, and their shared political affinities as anti-Zionist Jews.
