Punishments come in various guises, but the worst of those are the collective and indiscriminate ones.
I think we’re seeing that today levied against the most respected newspaper in Bahrain. Al-Wasat comes to our doors with just 20 pages, and virtually no advertisements whatsoever.
If this carries on, not only tens of families will lose theirÂ livelihoods, but much more importantly, a balanced and professional news source disappears for the island to be left with a bunch of ubiquitous yes men.
Is this a harbinger of things to come?
Do the math.
