The Lebanese Media has betrayed its viewers
Inciting hate, open communication messages from political camps on air waves. The Lebanese media has done a shame to itself, and held a share of the conflict problems. We have no source to trust. Everything will be looked upon by its viewers as a conspiracy or a plain lie. The modernised Future TV openly supporting a current political party in Parliament, the Future Movement and the March14 movement; LBC takes a more Christian stance with, March14 lenience, Orange TV a Free Patriotic Movement lenient to Aoun of the Opposition, and Al-Manar the official News Front of Hezbollah, member of the Opposition.
When things were all propped to get the lebanese servant motivated for the Liberation of Lebanon from Syria in 2005, we all hed down to Places des Martyrs or Sé7èt el Shôh’ada. The Red, White and Cedar of Lebanon was the only flag seen, patriotic banners and slogans.
When 2007 came around; We, the Lebanese needed unity more than ever due to internal political strife, each TV Station took refuge in his community fighting the Media outlets of its competitor. Each getting us identified with our Religion, community, even street block, rather than our Nation. All this, in the ‘good intention’ that it will solve our problems; The Lebanese people were the ones that ended up dying.
