A Freedom of Speech, for others…
In a country boosting it’s freedom of speech, with many media outlets that boast about their freedom of expression, discriminating opinions and silencing voices for management reasons may not be a first.
Assaad Thebian, a fellow blogger (Beirutiyat), tweep and freelance writer at As-Safir newspaper, has been notified that his articles will not appear in the newspaper anymore due to his involvement in the Anti-Sectarian Movement (Marches and activities) ..
As a newspaper that claims freedom of speech, no corruption nor affiliation.. that curated and promoted and aided freedom of expression about movements, revolutions and change across the region … that’s quite a fail.
kindly read Assaad’s account on the incident (post in arabic): جريدة السفير: صوت الذين لا صوت لهم؟
