West media ‘helping factor to poor tourism’, Yemen cries

November 22, 2009

From Saba, the government news agency:

[19/November/2009]

SANA’A, Nov. 19 (Saba) – Yemen on Thursday blamed the western media for being a helping factor for the boom of its tourism, saying the media with unconstructive reporting on some Yemen issues presents a distorted image of Yemen.

I think by “boom” they meant “bust”. And I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage those of you who can see through the unconstructive reporting by some (ahem) western reporters, to come visit us in beautiful Sana’a!

    Happy Thanksgiving! What will you eat in commemoration? Turkey might be difficult to procure.

    Love, Matt

    Boom … bust — so close and yet so far!
