Naharnet Finally Catches Up...

Naharnet (today):
"Elie Youssef Najem, a self-styled Lebanese business billionaire who has promised a hefty donation to help Lebanon recover from the recent Israeli war, was apparently nothing but a phony, according to the Malaysian media."
Yeah no kidding...

Blacksmiths of Lebanon :
(with the help of the DailyStar 24 hours earlier)
"Indeed, according to reports from several Lebanese and International sources, Najem has been implicated in a long line of sexual and financial misconduct allegations ranging from a 1993 sexual harassment case in Winnipeg, Canada, to fraud charges in Lebanon, to a "cheating" charge and number of fraud charges in January 2006, in Malaysia surrounding a $260 million pledged donation to a cancer research center there."

    Yes, their reporting can be very sub-par sometimes...

    ...along with the terms they use. Sometimes while reading the articles you can just picture the writer with the thesaurus and dictionary readily in hand!
