"You did not hear this from me." I received this email from a well-known Western reporter in the Middle East: "but hassan fattah leaves The New York Times in about a week from now. He has taken up a job as a senior editor on a new UAE-based paper funded by the Emirati ruling family, to be launched in the middle of next year..." Well, now we know why he has been covering Lebanon from...Dubai.
