Hassan Fattah of the New York Times Watch. Today, in an article on Lebanon, he said: "protesters thronged Beirut, chanting "Syria Out! Let's Go!" and "Bashar, you bastard, get your dogs out of Beirut!"" Not true. In fact, the second chant was "Ya Bashshar Ya `Akrut..." "Akrut" is Arabic for pimp, not "bastard."
