Strong opinions, weakly held

Not yet beyond surprise

A TV news anchor and her colleague in Lebanon were both fired after they shared a few laughs on the air over the fate of an anti-Syrian politician who was assassinated last week.

The open microphone captured the presenter saying: “Why did it take them so long to kill him?”

She and a male colleague, who was also sacked, can then be heard laughing.

“Ahmed Fatfat [another anti-Syrian MP] will be next. I’m counting them off,” she went on.

The colleague tells her not to gloat.

“It’s not gloating. But we’ve had enough of them,” she continues.


  1. “fired” as in “have no job” or as…?
