Yes, by the way,
shame on the media that does not understand that the people who are on the streets are not there for “sectarian” reasons but because they’re fed up of a government that is incompetent, corrupt, and dangerous.
Shame on the media that twists information according to where the paycheck come from.
Shame on the media that is itself sectarian, replicating the confessional discourse that, we as Lebanese, are guilty of having supplied during the past decades.
Shame on the media that replicates another demon the Lebanese have created in order to stay divided the Syria-bashing Syndrome. Again us Lebanese are so guilty. We have fed the media with our fears. And our fears are now traveling the world as an biased account of the social reality.
Shame on the media that does not have any idea of the principles it always brandishes like democracy, rights, equality, and all that blabla using it when the directives of the dominant hegemony (of ideas) permits it.
Shame on the media that praised the 14th of March gathering as a “democratic” and “popular” upsurge (when it was actually a racist xenophobic reaction to a created enemy namely Syria), and fails to see that it’s socio-economic concerns that are the base of the mobilizations witnessed today. Shame Shame Shame on that one (three shames).
Shame on the media in Lebanon that is made of corrupt “intellectuals” and dilettante writers of all creed. L’Orient le Jour is just a nightmare i almost cried this morning trying to read it. The headlines on their own are just horrible. (many shames here)
Shame on the media in the US and Europe that are too lazy to go beyond the first accounts collected by the confessionally narrow minded reporters in Lebanon.
I wish I could tell all those people on the ground today that I am sorry that the majority of the brain-washed people around the globes thinks that pro-Syrian is the only qualification you deserve. I am horribly sorry. I am ashamed myself. I hope to do everything I can to rectify this with my modest possiblities (a laptop and some fingers).
