WATCH: Jordanian Journalists Destroy TV Set
A heated discussion between two pundit-journalists about the civil war in Syria turned into a uncivil exchange in the studio of Jordan's "Seven Stars" satellite channel.
Shaker al-Johari and Mohammad al-Jayousi were appearing on a news discussion program, when, according to The Associated Press, "the debate fell apart as al-Jayousi accused al-Johari of supporting the Syrian rebels. Al-Johari then accused al-Jayousi of taking money for supporting Assad."
The two journalists were separated by a large oval-shaped table that was picked up and used as a weapon.
First, the tabletop comes off and then the set is quickly torn apart in a scene that more closely resembles the finale of a rock concert than a news program.
