I Think He's Talking About Me!

Lebanonwire recently published an article by Wissam al-Saliby in which he briefly summarizes the upsurge in media coverage of gay rights in Lebanon. The article cites a lot of sources, but never really says anything new about them. Furthermore, the conclusion that he draws at the end, that Lebanon remains a multi-societal country, is trite and bland. How can it be an article if it really doesn't contain any news?

Anyway he also does say this:

Needless to say that the internet and blog sites (some of which are exclusively
LGBT focused) are an impressive medium of communication and contact making.
Could he mean this site? I can't think of many other blogs that are only lgbt-oriented. Just this one and Gay Lebanon Undernet, and this one definitely gets more hits. Who knows?

the blandest news is news about the news.

"from Tripoli to downtown Beirut, Human Rights change"

What does that mean? Individual parts of Lebanon are never discussed in the article. how can that be a conclusion?
