At least this guy knows that a terrorist is still a terrorist, and he's not blind to Arab pundits who like to deceive people and not report the truth. Pretty much like America with its mainstream media. And also the guy knows that there exists a black and white issue. This is what we need, optimism. Unlike some people I know who prefer to whine and be pessimistic all day long on their blog sites along with their guttered filth. Quality blogging is what we need out there who are not afraid to report the truth and be intellectually honest.
The channel’s main program is its call-in talk shows. Iraqis from inside and outside Iraq call the channel to dish out their opinions. What I heard so far was so amazing. I heard Iraqis saying stuff I never hear before from our Arab pundits or even from Iraqis whom Al Jazeerah cheery picks to appear on its channel.
Apart from its constantly repeated call-in shows, I don’t think Fayhaa has any prominent program. The channel that was initiated by a number of Iraqi businessmen is still getting started. With its extremely low resources, this channel became a prominent voice in Iraq’s growing media market. That’s an achievement.
One of the things I really liked was that Fayhaa calls things by their true names. Apples are apples. Oranges are oranges. Terrorists are terrorists. Those who plant car bombs in police stations are not insurgents, they are not rebels, they are not militants, they are terrorists.

At least this one Egyptian blogger in Egypt is overly excited about a "Fayhaa" satellite show that he's finally found among the many satellite channels.
