Two pundits taking part in a Jordanian TV debate about media freedom in the Arab Spring became so angry with each other that they wrecked the studio on air. Journalists Muhammad Sharif al-Jiyusi (left) and Shakir al-Johari (right) were mid-way through a discussion on the Jordanian 7 Stars TV network when the tone became heated.
One pundit accuses the other of "bartering his positions", prompting the offended journalist to say "shut up", in a video posted on the website of pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV. The men quickly start pushing the studio table at each other until the top comes off, while a hapless TV host looks on. In the subsequent table-top tug-of-war, nobody seems to score a decisive victory.
