The US ambassador in Lebanon actually calls TV Stations when guests criticize the US government. A former Lebanese ambassador in the US (who is in fact right-wing) told me that the US amabassador made frantic calls after a recent appearance by him on LBC-TV. There were people who dared to criticize Syria when the latter dominated the country, but the new US era in Lebanon does not permit criticisms of the US. I saw graffiti in Beirut condemning US intervention in Lebanon (even in Sunni neighborhoods). With my Cannon S500, I will be documenting everything and posting upon my return to the US.
