    don't give a flying f*** about media freedom at all. tunisia needs "people freedom." the little guy gets left behind in all this media crap and can be corrupted at will by any government. and HAS in tunisia, just look at the past.

    You don`t know what freedom your neighbour has if you don`t get read about it or hear about it through one type of media or another. The media just shouldn`t have the freedom to go beyond boundaries into personal private privacy though unless of course you are a politician then transparency is what it is all about !

    Doesn't the media mould the world in the way that the owners want it to be seen? Don't get me on to the impartiality of the media or the lack thereof.

    "The Medium is the Message"....Marshall Mcluhan, Canadian Philosopher and Author, commentated on the media`s role in modern society many years ago. We are media lead and driven.....

    Two of my favourite quotes re the media:

    News is what somebody somewhere wants to suppress all the rest is advertising. Lord North

    and

    The news isn't there to tell you what happened. It's there to tell you what it wants you to hear or what it thinks you want to hear. Jos Whedon

    Just spoke to a friend living in the South who said that there was a storm, yesterday, from the Sahara that brought more heat and sand storms. The temperatures are nearing 50 degrees C in the shade during the day. Makes me fell silly for being upset with all the rain we have had here.

    So they were picked up by who during BA`s time ? by his police ! Prudent to think all police may not have all turned. Power feeds ego.

    I don't understand why the government isn't interfering to help sooner, now it's the water, before it was due of snow about gaz bottles and all kind of other things, in that kind of situations they need to send trucks with whatever people need, send now trucks with water to help those people!

    It's a dramatic experience for the refugees and for the fishermen!
    Libya is still not safe at all and especially not for persons with for excample the Nationality Eritrea like the persons on this boat.

    I wonder whether it will now become a regular thing. It is clear that they want to leave for what they think is a better life, but could not do this during Ben Ali's time.
