UPDATE: Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan deleted Susan Glaser’s tweet, citing it. It has been replaced with a tweet featuring a screengrab.
On Tuesday, we received more horrific details about the fate of the Fox News crew that was fired upon by Russian forces as they gathered news outside Kiev on Monday where one was hospitalized and at least two were killed, including cameraman Pierre Zakarzevsky and a local reporter. / Producer Alexandra Kuvshinova. This, of course, meant that some classless ghosts of the liberal media were eager to get out of their holes and try to get around those deaths and try to score political points.
The first in the sprint proves how low they can go New Yorker Staff Writer and CNN Global Affairs Analyst, Susan Glasser. “What a tragedy. A cameraman has died while covering a battle for a TV network that promotes a pro-Putin campaigner as its top-rated primetime host. She is happy A tweet.
A few minutes later, he returned to comment on Zakarzevsky’s dedication to journalism. “[m]The years of lies and propaganda are so hard to accept – it has serious consequences. “
So grateful for the heroic work that Pierre and all journalists, Ukrainians and foreigners, are risking their lives to show us the horrors of this war. Makes it so hard to accept years of lies and propaganda – there are really deadly consequences

Seeing the disgust of Glasser, The Washington Post Columnist Margaret Sullivan decided she had to deal with this now-deleted tweet (no explanation for deletion):

Then came Julia Euf, a Washington News correspondent and leftist conspiracy theorist who wanted to remind people of Kuvshinova’s death. He accused Fox News Ignore him:

In fact, Jonat Fleeling, a senior field producer at Fox News, tweeted this touching tribute:
In yesterday’s attack near Kiev, we lost a beautiful brave woman – Alexandra Kuvshinova – Sasha. He loved music and he was funny and kind. He was 24 years old. He has worked with our team over the last month and has done a brilliant job.

But now that we’ve got those unpleasant people out of the way, let’s look at those who knew when to get together.
On CNN, in contrast to Glaser, media reporters Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy published an article on the tragic story and did not attempt to take a shot at their rival network. “In December, Fox News recognized Zacchaeus as one of the network’s ‘unconnected heroes.’ He was described at the time as a journalist who “risked his life on the battlefield to get a Fox News story,” they wrote.
Embarrassing Glaser as well, CNN chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward heartily recalls working with Zacharyjowski and calling him a friend.
Nothing more to say. I had the great opportunity to work with Pierre and to call him a friend. An extraordinary consciousness and extraordinary talent and one of the kindest, most compassionate colleagues on the road. Absolutely heartbreaking. https://t.co/KmScUCcAwd

Los Angeles Times Foreign correspondent Marcus Yam also had his own recollection:
That’s how I want to remember Pierre Zakarzevsky.
Big smile. Nice people. By being kind, generous and radiating energy one can exuberant. From Kabul to Kyiv, he never wanted to help.
He was found dead along with Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshinova. RIP

And we’ll leave you with some Fox News reporters remembering their colleagues and friends.
A fond memory of Pierre Zacharyzevsky – he tried the biggest crab I ever saw while we were in Singapore. He was jazzed to try it. He was funny, kind and always ready for an adventure. Rest in peace friend. 3 pic.twitter.com/6JIf3yA1YA
