The above sheikh was hosted on NewTV earlier tonight to talk on behalf of the people of Tripoli. I guess that city ran out of spokespeople over the past few days so the TV station in question figured digging this creature up from the depth of whatever abyss he was in was a good idea. Ratings are proportional to beards.
Note that this sheikh is said not to even be from Tripoli and has not been residing there all his life to get to talk on the city’s behalf.
This man spoke about the need for self-security for himself and his fellow Sunnis of Tripoli. Did the TV station in question even bother to target this rhetoric? Of course they didn’t. This is the rhetoric they want being spewed around their airwaves lately. This is what gets people talking. This is what gets people to tune in. Of course, this is precisely the rhetoric that also gets people killed and further explosions taking place and extremism rising. But who cares about that, right?
In the process of his TV moment of fame, this creature also asked for the help and support of Al Qaeda in protecting the people of Tripoli. I’ll leave that notion hanging.
There’s a responsibility for Lebanese media to kill off such eccentrics in times when such extremism is not only unhealthy but detrimental to the well-being of everything around us. Does hate exist? Sure it does. Do people who mean harm for others just because they think differently exist? Sure they do. But it doesn’t mean we should give them air time to poison minds. You only needed to tune into FutureTV on Saturday with Paula Yaacoubian or MTV hosting Khaled el Daher as well, for the nth time, yesterday for your prime examples.
Our TV stations are still searching for the next big scoop instead of being mature and responsible in handling what seems to be an impeding civil war.
PS: If you think my blog titles have a lot of “screw” lately, it’s because we’re in a general state of screwing.
Reblogged this on Ned Hamson Second Line View of the News.
NEW TV: THE CHANNEL OF LEBANESE CIVIL WAR. DUE TO ITS LYING ACTS AND THE POISON IT SPITS FOR AN HOUR BEFORE EVEN STARTING THE NEWS.
IF YOU WANT A LIVE ENCOUNTER OF SOMEONE WHO WAS AT THE BOMBING WHOM HIS GRANDCHILDREN GOT KILLED IN FRONT OF HIM YOUTUBE “Kalam Ennas تفجير طرابلس احمد عبوس”
hahaha was totally thinking of commenting on the title by saying “lots of screwing lately…”…and then I read the P.S. comment 😛 eh walla….
and yeah, all the media do is spew hate and help such idiots speak out…the mere fact that they actually interview criminals and msalla7in on tv all the time, inno 3ade, is beyond ridiculous and unacceptable!
something Ahmad 3bous mentioned yest in his brutally honest and painful yet true speech last night on Kalam Ennas…(as the comment above me mentioned)
You forgot Khaled el Daher on MTV yesterday! The epitome of sectarian speech! He accused another journalist of treason and collaboration with the Syrian regime over a tweet.
they should not host layla abdel latif also and making ppl panic, our nerves r fucked enough already
If you believe layla has any supernatural power, then you deserve what you get you pathetic ignorant.
did i mention that i believe her you dumb ass ? i said they should ban her from TVs because hosting her and making ppl panic is stupid even if they believe her or not
