Essential tips to become a popular Arabic TV broadcaster:

-Be sarcastic.
-Be arrogant.
-Be pessimistic.
-Be skeptical.
-Be pretentious.
-Be the star.
-Always bring the attention to you.
-Always interrupt your guest.
-Don’t listen to your guests’ message: they might influence your prejudice.
-Keep this word in mind: liars.
-Think of your next question when they are still giving you answers on the current one, you don’t need to know what they are saying.
-Pretend you’re interested, and right afterwards ask a very silly question: it destabilizes both guest and audience.
-Throw a joke when least needed.
-Raise your voice without shouting, enough to push a little more your guest towards loosing control, effect guaranteed.
-Play with your body: lean forward from time to time, everybody knows it means you’re concerned. And suddenly lean back, raise your chin and become distant. It means a lot.
-Raise the palm of your hand in front of your guest as for “enough garbage, now my turn to say the truth”.
-Bring two enemies face to face whenever you can, push them to the edge, admire your result and read the papers the next day: your show is the talk of the town! Yeah!
-Use technology to entertain yourself and prove once more that you rock: while your guest is talking, interrupt with a message you got on your BB, or Iphone, or on Skype, or Twitter, or Facebook (this way everybody will know how popular you are and how updated your station is).
-Always have a PC close and choose the worst moment to interrupt and read not so clever comments.
-Never let your guest finish an idea: no time for bullshit.
-Never agree with your guest on a point, always go against: effect guaranteed.
-Always remember: it’s your show, you’re the master, the leader, the God, guests are only here to prove it.
-Always jump from one subject to another BEFORE getting a clear idea. You have to cover all the questions you prepared, even if it means ending with an empty episode.
-Always ask a question, wait few seconds, and BAM! surprise everybody with a totally different question! huh?
-Be aggressive be aggressive be aggressive! Be pushy be pushy be pushy! Be mean be mean be mean!

Follow the tips, and you'll become  a leader, a master, a popular example to follow, in an aggressive and violent society just like you. Then you'll be sure to always have "issues" and "subjects" to feed your everlasting show.
