Fight erupts on-air as journalists argue over Syria

Published: Updated:

An on-air fight blew up on Tuesday between two journalists on a Jordanian talk show when the speakers butted heads over the Syrian crisis.

In profound disagreement, the speakers broke apart the studio’s table they had been seated in an attempt to fight each other.

The program “Bayn Etijihayn” (Between two Ways) aired on the Jordanian TV channel 7 Stars and hosted Shaker al-Jawhary, head of the Electronic Media Association in Jordan, and Mohammad Sharif al-Jaiousy, the editor in chief of news website al-Mustaqbal al-Arabi.

Al-Jawhary attacked Jaiousy for his support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The fight forced the host to abruptly end the program.
