BAGHDAD (AFP) - The head of Iraq's US-funded television network resigned, claiming he had no control over the channel's management and that the budget was being wasted on buying costly foreign programs while salaries were not being paid.

... Jalal al-Mashta was appointed as general director of Al-Iraqiya television in May.

He charged that the network's budget was being wasted on costly foreign programs and that the sub-contracting process had left no room for local know-how.

Al-Mashta cited the LBCI's "Al-Mumayazun" Game Show which is costing Al-Iraqiya 28,000 dollars per show, while he estimated that a similar program could be shot in Iraq for around 3,000 dollars.

Or he could have pulled a Mordecai on PYL in 1986 and walked a mile for a foil, as Peter T. put it when he missed a question about tobacco companies. Said episode was the last PYL episode ever aired on USA.

And as usual, Zach cannot let a joke go without bringing up some irrelevant story.

Now celebrating his 17th season on GSF!
