Taken from +961

I was just reading on Rami’s blog the small note the paper had left to thank one of their reporters for failing to do his job properly and I remembered a month back the letter Addiyar’s Editor in Chief Charles Ayoub wrote to Syrian President Bashar el Assad begging him for $700,000 and admitting he lost all his money to gambling.

He deleted the letter from his page but I found it somewhere else. You can check it out [Here]. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything more humiliating and unprofessional and I am wondering whether any actions should be taken against the paper to close it down. Aren’t there any rules or guidelines to operate a newspaper in Lebanon? Shouldn’t there be a minimum level of credibility and integrity?
