And by my colleague, journalist Hani Bathish:
But neither received a response as far as I can tell. And yet the interview with Rai went on for a whopping two hours! You can watch it here, if you have that much time to spare!
I’m not sure how that time was filled, since the only headline to come out of the interview in The Daily Star was: “Rai Parliament must get going with Presidential vote“
Breaking news, huh? Seriously, were there any tough questions about Lebanon’s ridiculously inefficient, feudalistic and corrupt political system asked during this interview? Unless the marathon broadcast was not meant to inform, just to propagate that autocratic good old boys club with smiles and… cakes?
Again I really don’t have two hours to spare, so if someone does or has seen it, please let me know if I missed something here.
