Kordahi; Arab Star's TV show pulled for his pro-Syria views

(DP-News - AFP)

DUBAI- The influential Saudi media group MBC has blocked the transmission of a game show because of the overtly pro-Syrian regime views of its Lebanese star presenter, Georges Kordahi. The Arabic-language version of the US show "You Deserve It" was to have been broadcast from September 10, and episodes had already been recorded.

In a statement received by AFP on Sunday, the Dubai-based Middle East Broadcasting Corporation said it had "taken this decision through respect for the feelings of the Syrian people."

The Internet site of the Al-Arabiya satellite channel, which belongs to the MBC group, said Kordahi had been targeted by social networks and in Arab media for his remarks on the pro-government Dunia channel and on pro-Syrian Lebanese stations.



Kordahi, one of the best known television presenters in the Arab world, had previously presented the Arabic-language version of the worldwide hit game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"

In July, he had said that the wave of protests against the government of President Bashar al-Assad was "a foreign conspiracy" and that the "Arab Spring" had "sown chaos across the Arab world," the Al-Arabiya site said.

Kordahi's name had been placed on the "list of shame" on the Internet of actors and media personalities who support despotic Arab regimes.
