Egyptian journalist Adel Al-Gogari, 56, died Wednesday night [10 July 2012] while discussing the crisis in Syria during a live televised broadcast on Iraqi Al-Hadath private channel in Media Production City, Cairo.

Al-Gogari, editor of Egypt’s Al-Anwar newspaper and Al-Ghad Al-Arabi magazine, suffered a blot clot following a heated phone debate about Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime with Brigadier-General Hossam, a member of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), who Al-Gogari had called a “fugitive soldier.”

Al-Gogari, a Nasserist, also accused the FSA of being funded by Israel during the show.

Al-Gogari was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

The late journalist’s family announced on Facebook that they will receive condolences on Friday in his birthplace Abu-Suweir city in the canal governorate of Ismailia.

Al-Gogari recently appeared on Al-Jazeera Arabic’s controversial programme “The Opposite Direction”, where he vehemently defended the Syrian regime, claiming that what is happening in the war-torn country is “an international conspiracy” against Al-Assad.

This video documentary juxtaposes pop culture images of consumption and bubble-gum images of sex and materialism, with the brutality of war from, which the powers that be wishes to distract the populace.

A TV interview of Aldous Huxley offers insight into the inevitable role television would play in our lives. It is possibly one of the most importantly prophetic interviews in history, and integration of contemporary news clips only emphasizes his point further.
