MTV Station: sponsored by US ambassador in Lebanon

The US ambassador in Lebanon visited this week the MTV station in Beirut.  It is the most racist and right-wing news station in all of Lebanon.  In fact, while driving the other day, I listened to one of its programs.  They had a session of laughter making fun of rape rates in South Africa, followed by a session about wives beating husbands.  The serious anchorman asserted that the rates of women beating their husbands is much higher than men beating their wives.  It seems that what tickled the US ambassador in Lebanon.  Read this article about racism against dark skinned people and Africans and Asian by the station.  That also must have tickled the US ambassador who visited the station days only after this most disgusting reporter aired in the news section.  Enjoy.
