Lebanon Skypecast #2: Blogger “Lebanon.Profile”

After hanging up the Skypeout call with Gustave of the Lebanese Political Journal, I called the Beirut cellphone of his co-blogger who goes by the blog-name “Lebanon.Profile.” LP prefers not to have his name revealed. As he explains in our conversation, if he identifies himself he won't be able to speak as freely without causing problems for his relatives.

We had a great conversation about why and how Lebanese blogs are saying things neither the local media nor the international media are saying. One of LP's more famous moments was when he accused the Washington Post of inaccurate and biased reporting. Hear all about it and lots more:
