@wimar tweets on Libya-MetroTV editorial

10 April 2011

The brouhaha surrounding the changes at Talkindo-Metro TV has ended with the relaunching of Talkindo today, featuring Dalton, Rahayu Saraswati and soon to be announced new co-host. We talk about the process and result. The result is good, keep the show alive and taking me off the team. Totally within Metro TV rights and something I would readily have agreed to, had it been done in proper fashion. As it was, MetroTV management used the story in their internal meetings that I had insulted Mr. Surya Paloh, owner of MetroTV. I did no such thing, and never in the years of public comment have I attacked a person personally. We look at policies and action. And the fault of Metro TV policies and action lie in the hands of management, not of the owners. Here is a complete audit of my tweets on that day, when NATO air strikes begun in Libya.

Gadafi's victims evident RT @andinieffendi: local TV always say civilians become targets but no visuals.Govt can't provide clear evidence

komentar @metrotvnews ? RT @zuhairimisrawi: Pasukan Qaddafi menggempur Misrata. Puluhan warga tewas, termasuk anak-anak dan perempuan.#Libya

skenario perang minyak adalah teori. pembantaian rakyat oleh Gadafi adalah kenyataan

berat sebelah, sembunyikan fakta RT @yudhistirotk: @wimar Editorialnya mengecam "kebiadaban" US, tapi "lupa" mengecam keberingasan Khadafi
