The Toronto Star’s Oakland Ross reported today that Hussein Naboulsi, the former director of Hezbollah’s media relations efforts was none other than a former Macleans magazine salesman.
If the name sounds familiar, Naboulsi is infamous for leading CNN’s Nic Robertson by the nose in Lebanon, giving him a platform to attack Israel by issuing unsubstantiated allegations and outright propaganda. See the clip here.
Meanwhile, Michael Totten’s eye-opening look at Hezbollah’s media relations reported that: "The first time I met Hussein Naboulsi, Hezbollah?s media relations liaison, he was perfectly friendly. But he later threatened me with physical violence because I cracked a joke about Hezbollah on my blog."
