I usually report to you media that I have watched, read, or listened to. But my mother in Beirut reported to me an interview she watched on Dubai TV with Lebanese editor of Ad-Diyar newspaper, Charles Ayyub--who likes to have it both ways (he was close to Rustum and to Hariri). He told the interviewer there that he used to receive $100,000 a month from Rafiq Hariri, as other editors did, but that when he once criticized Hariri, the funding stopped and that Hariri tried to "hurt him."
