LBC SAT’s ban in Saudi Arabia gets world media attention

24Aug09

LBC SAT‘s office in Jeddah has been closed by the Saudi Ministry of Information and Culture. This happened after LBC’s “Ahmar Bil Khat Al Arid” showed the “confession” of a Saudi man, recalling how he had numerous sexual encounters with many Saudi women. The witness, explained how to pick up Saudi women using Bluetooth.

The interesting thing is LBC Sat’s reaction. Silence (what can they say, they rely on Saudi ad money and LBC Sat is partly owned by Saudi prince Walid Bin Talal),and most unexpectedly, reruns!

Indeed, LBC Sat has been rerunning a 3-4 month old interview with Saudi Minister of Information and Culture, Abdel Aziz Khoja, where he proclaims how he wants to work with private owned Satellite channels (such as LBC Sat) and how the freedom of these channels is good for Saudi Arabia.

 

That said, the interview itself is quite interesting. Mr. Khoja is very candid and talks openly about the media, internet, freedom, Saudi problems etc… – Arab Media Review

  1. It’s really a nice and useful piece of info. I’m happy that you shared this useful info with us.

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    this reminds me of an LBC news report a few years back on Saudi women who were indecently exposing themselves via webcams on the internet. I dont recall any furor over this. does anyone have the video of this show “Ahmar Bil Khat Al Arid”? youtube?
