The financial managers of the major daily newspapers are very happy these days. They see a river of money flowing into their already overflowing bank accounts as they publish page after page of ads from companies and citizens congratulating the new government and parliament members.
Prime minister Nader Dahabi specifically asked people NOT to publish such ads. But hey! Do you think anyone is listening. The amounts of such ads in Al-Rai for example is shocking. Faces, faces and more of the same faces. Colorful backgrounds and frames. Bad visual taste meets political and social hypocrisy.
The money spent on these ads could have easily built several children libraries or helped hundreds of poor people.
I even doubt that these ads have the desired hypocritical effect. They are undifferentiated. They are crammed into page after page of sameness.
The waste of money is deplorable.
This phenomena is a truthful commentary on our society.
