Hadas Gold CNN
Hadas works as a politics, media and global business reporter. In 2017, Gold was named one of the “most influential media reporters” by Mediaite.
Prior to joining CNN, Gold spent more than five years at Politico as a media reporter and also worked as a news and feature editor at The GW Hatchet where she received awards from the Society for Professional Journalists and the Associated College Press. In 2011, she was awarded a prestigious fellowship from the Pulitzer Center. She interned at 60 Minutes, Politifact, and with Cox Newspapers before working as a freelance producer with Colombian TV network NTN 24 and then at Politico as a media reporter where she led the “On The Media” blog and covered the 2016 presidential campaign.
In October 2016, Gold was targeted with anti-Semitic threats, tweets and emails, including threats against her life. Other prominent Jewish journalists also received similar threats at the time, including Jake Tapper of CNN; Jeffrey Goldberg; editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, Jonathan Weisman of the New York Times; and Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire. Gold’s employer at the time Politico, reported the threats to police. Gold states that: “I don’t want to say it’s something you just have to deal with, but the internet is both wonderful and not wonderful. You have to kind of take the good with the bad and react appropriately when it does seem serious”
In May 27, 2018, Gold retweeted an Arizona Republic article of migrant children being held at an ICE detention facility, including photos of them in cages. The article was first tweeted by numerous other journalists and public figures following President Donald Trump’s new policy of taking children away from parents who are caught unlawfully crossing the Mexican border into the United States including New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein, Shaun King, Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau, activist Linda Sarsour, and former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Gold subsequently deleted her tweet writing “Deleted previous tweet because gave impression of recent photos (they’re from 2014)” after it emerged that the article was from 2014 during the administration of President Barack Obama. Trump tied it into his immigration agenda tweeting: “Democrats mistakenly tweet 2014 pictures from Obama’s term showing children from the Border in steel cages. They thought it was recent pictures in order to make us look bad, but backfires. Dems must agree to Wall and new Border Protection for good of country…Bipartisan Bill!.”
