Subject : Who to blame?
I had an immense pleasure running through sixteen of the seventeen messages
left to you by the angel guardian and father of the Jordanian minister of
planning,bitterly hurt as it sounds by the insulting picture, showing up his
son with Nattin...ya..hoo !!!
Would you please allow me to send him this open message :
I do very much understand the reason behind your bursting anger and the
embarassing position you are in...!However I don't really understand
why did you choose to blame the editor for showing up your son, rather than
not blaming your son for such a disgrace broiught to you in the first place
? Please cool down and don't take my words as a direct offense to
you,because I don't mean it .But if you think it over again with an open
mind,you will see that your complaint is out of context,considering that the
editor is a professional journalist bound by a moral duty to reveal the
truth in any shape or form...regardless! Your son happend to be exposing
himself knowingly in the open with a "banned product"! A perfect attraction
for any joiurnalist not to miss! Judging by the picture, your son seems very
relaxed and curteous towards his guest,without any sign of strain or
disconfort, for us at least to suggest that he is there... just to be there
...not because he wanted !
In fact this drives me to quetion myself,why did you take on yoursel the
task of deffending a well grown up man, holding a key position at that
level of responsability?
I think your decision to act on his behalf to deffend his case out of
yourself was't a sensible idea,particularly the randomly way you did
I also can not justify your attitude of warning the editor not to come near
Shall I remind you that Richard Nixon lost presidency of the United States
because of a journalist ! Where would you put your son compared to him?
Another point that you made, out if context as well, repeatedaly in your
messages,trying to remind the editor being an old freind...!!!
Is this in your openion the right guide line , if you were a journalist to
adopt as your a code of practice ? overlooking wrong... and hiding dark side
of the truth in the name of freindship...? What quality of journalist would
you be in your own eyes ?
I hope you can see with an objective eye the logic of my point of view in
this message though harsh as it seems to be !
