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.
