Fisk and Lebanon

When it comes to Lebanon, Hariri, and Jumblatt, Robert Fisk enters a state of a momentary lapse of reason.

Welcome back :)
Due to my ignorance I don't get what Fisk gets wrong with Lebanon.
It seems to me that in general Fisk is one of the lucid journalists reporting from the Middle East.

Homeyra,

Thanks for the comment. You are right about Fisak, however, when he reports on internal Lebanese Politics, he is clearly biased in favor of Hariri and Jumblatt, and the 14th March coalition in general, and against Aoun-Hezbollah.

I have never really liked Robert Fisk. He has always seemed to me to be the White Man explaining the Arabs to other White people, if you know what I mean.

Yes I know and this has a name, orientalism.
