About TBS


July 9, 2003

Dear Sirs,

In your TBS article at the following URL: http://tbsjournal.arabmediasociety.com/Archives/Fall02/LBC.html, you incorrectly state that Jihad Khazen was managing editor of Beirut's English-language newspaper, The Daily Star, "until the civil war put that paper out of existence". This is totally incorrect. The Daily Star suspended operations during part of the civil war, however it has long restarted its operations and is now the leading English language paper in the region with correspondents all over the world and a partnership with the International Herald Tribune. Today it prints local and regional versions in more than one country and has a very popular online edition: http://www.dailystar.com.lb/.

Please check your facts before making incorrect statements in the future.

TBS is delighted to be reminded that The Daily Star has long since resumed publication and apologizes for the potentially misleading wording used in the original piece.

My wife and I enjoyed the letters by Maggie Zanger. We would like to see a follow up if possible.

So would TBS. Maggy is now in Iraq, where she is training journalists.
