    TV Show Homeland angers minister over depiction of Beirut

    Lebanese Tourism Minister Faddy Abboud said filming "did not depict reality". Mr Abboud believes the depiction of the city could have a negative impact on tourism.

    what is 'reality'?

    Some say, that we each live our own, subjective one.

    Seems Lance Armstrong sure does.

    Kind of like boiling a lobster. It doesn't know things are heating up till it's on the table.

    Clearly there weren't enough people on the streets burning American flags in the show...

    • The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.

    tv is just tv. Homeland is a great show, third favorite of mine. Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad are the best.

    Not so sure about that comment, for it seems that TV informs 78% of the North American population's perspectives of 'reality'
