    Default Lebanon’s MTV returns after seven years off air

    Lebanon’s MTV returns after seven years off air
    April 7th, 2009

    A private Lebanese television station shut down in 2002 by a then Syrian-backed government is to return to the airwaves today, just two months before the parliamentary election. “MTV today returns as a podium for all Lebanese, for all parties, to speak out on what is best for the country,” Ghayath Yazbeck, who heads the channel’s news and political programmes, told AFP.

    MTV, or Murr Television, was shut down by a court ruling in September 2002 on the grounds that it had violated a law on election broadcasts in Lebanon, where local media outlets can only survive through political patronage.

    Yazbeck said the channel had historically opposed Syria’s 29-year military and political dominance of Lebanon, which ended in 2005 in the wake of mass protests following the assassination of former prime minister Rafiq Hariri. But he said MTV had also supported the Shiite Muslim Hezbollah movement in its armed fight to drive Israeli forces from Lebanon, but had concerns about its weapons.

    “MTV is targeting a sector of the young Lebanese middle class on educational, cultural and social levels” and aspires to be Lebanon’s only “real fourth estate,” Yazbeck said. The channel will also “offer in-depth, rather than superficial, programmes that deal with our problems,” he said.

    Ce coincidenţă! Postul acela a fost închis de cptre autorităţi deodată cu OTV-ul nostru. Doar că noi am avut mai mult ghinion şi al nostru s-a redeschis mai repede.
