What autocrats like Jabba hate most: free expression.

Khashoggi's murder pro'ly warmed Jabba's "heart."

Well, he's certainly a fan of Gianforte body slamming a journalist for asking a question he didn't like/didn't feel like answering.

I was recently online looking at the 2018 “Freedom in the World” report published by Freedom House and came to a grave realization. There is only one country in the Arab world that has been classified as “free.” That nation is Tunisia. Jordan, Morocco and Kuwait come second, with a classification of “partly free.” The rest of the countries in the Arab world are classified as “not free.”
As a result, Arabs living in these countries are either uninformed or misinformed. They are unable to adequately address, much less publicly discuss, matters that affect the region and their day-to-day lives. A state-run narrative dominates the public psyche, and while many do not believe it, a large majority of the population falls victim to this false narrative. Sadly, this situation is unlikely to change.




Sounds like Fox.

The Arab world needs a modern version of the old transnational media so citizens can be informed about global events. More important, we need to provide a platform for Arab voices. We suffer from poverty, mismanagement and poor education. Through the creation of an independent international forum, isolated from the influence of nationalist governments spreading hate through propaganda, ordinary people in the Arab world would be able to address the structural problems their societies face.


Idealism in the era of "fake news."


Quote
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more.
It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.

Remember the Arab boycott of Qatar, as soon as AssClown was elected? https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/22/world/middleeast/qatar-saudi-emir-boycott.html

Al Jazeera became an influential actor in the Middle East after its first broadcast on Nov. 1, 1996. In its news dispatches and talk shows, the satellite channel was harshly critical of U.S. foreign policy in the region—especially after the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and the 2003 war on Iraq.
Over the past several years, however, the network, which is funded by the government of Qatar, first moderated and then dropped its critical stance.

It just goes to show how evil, vile and corrupted you are, to keep attacking the best President of your lifetime with slanderous lies.

That you would try to paint the opening of the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology, also shows that it is extremist ideology like yours that needs snuffed out. Preferably at it's source: you.

With the heinously biased way the Demedia has been presenting things, they all deserved to be bodyslammed at the least

LOL at the body-slamming thing.  It was only a year ago where reporters said Trump had "endangered" the media because he laughed at and retweeted the Trump-bodyslamming-the-CNN-logo graphic.  CNN even tracked the guy who made the graphic down and tried to ruin his life. :))
