I used to praise New TV. But New TV during this crisis has been utterly ridiculous. They are serving as mere propagandists for the Lebanese Army. Also, please be aware that the footage and songs that you air in praise of the Lebanese Army look funny, not heroic. People unfortunately for you still remember the performance--or lack thereof--of the Army when Israeli attacked Lebanon. I will be writing an article in Arabic this week about the Lebanese media and the coverage of the Nahr Al-Barid crisis.
PS But this could be explained by the very close relationship between New TV and Emile Lahhud (the president of Lebanon, if anybody still remembers that, or cares).
