Jordanian fails to commit suicide for the 11th time. He tried to throw himself off the fourth floor of a building while extremely inebriated, but backed out at the last minute. Oh well, 12th time’s the charm.
Prime Minister Nader Dahabi appointed Minister of Media and Communications Nasser Judeh as Chairman of the Jordan Radio and Television Corporation. Judeh’s predecessor, Sabri Rbeihat expressed his hopes that the JRTVC’s “accomplishments” would continue. Meanwhile, ATV employees continue their protests, demanding their salaries that haven’t been paid for 4 months now, and the launch of the channel that was supposed to broadcast back in August 2007. Easy on the accomplishments, guys.
