Lebanese Newspaper in danger – The Daily Star
My favorite english newspaper is going bust. Lebanon’s only English-language newspaper, The Daily Star, was forced by court order to shut down due to a $700,000 loan it needs to re-compensate.
The paper has since been out of print and its Web site hasn’t been updated.
The Daily Star’s founder, Jamil Mroue, comes from a long tradition of Journalism. His father, Kamel Mroue, founded the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Hayat.
Now I’m going to have to settle for second best, english local news, such as Naharnet, or even better, Now Lebanon!
