Conversation in the office turned to legal scenarios after reading about a Saudi cleric’s statement that owners of satellite TV networks that show “immoral” content may be killed.
“Just imagine authorities catch a man who killed a guy in Saudi.
Man: But I only killed a satellite TV owner because he was showing immoral stuff.
Officials: Oh, OK. Then you are free to go. Sorry about that.”
The cleric has since clarified that the owners should be brought to trial and sentenced to death only if other penalties don’t deter them from airing such broadcasts.
But what do you think about such a statement? Will the media feel threatened or in danger?
