CBS Morning co-host Gayle King is under fire for not asking The Color Purple author Alice Walker about her anti-Semitic belief that the world is run by lizard Jews.
King had a sociable session with the author on Wednesday about her newly released book, ‘Gathering Blossoms Under Fire’.
The interview was held at the Huntington Library Art Museum and Botanical Gardens in San Bernardino, California – but avoids Walker’s most infamous views.
It appeared in some of Walker’s intimate journal entries over five decades that encompassed her rise to fame; 10-year freedom to a white man in Georgia in the 1960s; private romance with singer Tracey Chapman; 40-year-old milestone from The Color Purple, and her views on getting older.

But it made no mention at all of Walker’s infamous anti-Semitic beliefs, which include her subscription to a bizarre claim that the world is ruled by a cabal of lizards, many of whom are Jews.
‘You write so specifically about how much you do not like fame. You do not like all the attention, yet you step back in a very public and very personal way. Why did you decide to do that? ‘ King asks, CBS News reported.
Walker listens as he laughs, ‘Well, I’m on my wait.
“What does Alice mean?” King responds in a worried tone.
‘Well, I’m at 78 and to show people something they can use is a lot of fun. I think a life that is honest and a life that was basically wonderful with everything that has happened in my life is the right thing to do. ‘
Walker did not seem too short with words during her conversation, unlike King who was lacking and the famous author never asked about her beliefs about anti-Semitism.
Yair Rosenberg, who describes himself as a ‘DEEP SHTELT writer at The Atlantic’, and a ‘Nazi troll’ appeared angry.
‘Alice Walker is an anti-Semite who has no regrets. She has a new book out. If media want their platform to cover it, that’s fine. But if they do not initially ask about their history of bigotry, they are not doing their job to inform the public, ‘Rosenberg twittere.
Former Wall Street Journal and New York Times reporter Bari Weiss echoed similar sentiments on her Twitter account CBS News article that ran from the interview.
‘Alice Walker an unapologetic anti-Semite who believes in lizard Illuminati. But because Jews do not count, they receive this kind of vicious, uncritical treatment by the mainstream press, ‘she said.

During an interview with Vice in 2012, Ike said: The Illuminati are the descendants of a breed of shapely, blood-drinking, child-sacrificing alien lizards. “In simple terms, there’s a predator breed that takes on a reptilian form,” Icke told Vice in 2012. “They feed humanity. They make humanity a slave breed. They demand human sacrifice – that’s where Satanism comes in. They come in. feed on human energy. They feed on children’s energy ‘
In 2018, Walker wrote a column for the Times Book Review praising David Icke, a well-known anti-Semite and conspiracy theorist, and author of the book, ‘And The Truth Shall Set You Free’.
As the story unfolded, The Times stood by its decision in performing the piece.
That same year, Walker fans were outraged when the activist / writer gave a shout out to Icke, for his early antics.
“In Icke’s books, there is the whole of existence, on this planet and several others, to think about,” Walker said in the column, specifically noting, in which Icke claims in various ways that Jews financed the Holocaust and that perhaps the Holocaust has not done. barre. Icke’s books, Walker says, are ‘the dream of an interesting person coming out’, Vox reports.
