Lebanon Debate - Quorums and selling lines.

"Iktamal el nissab" a word often used y the Lebanese which mean "forming a quorum" or having enough MPs or ministers to have a regular session (and ear their salaries!). So the Lebanon Debate website is playing on that concept saying "in one site alone is the quorum formed" and the staple of Lebanese politicians is seen in full... Then they go on and print their selling line "truth is our business" (or "our business is the truth") which sort of left me cold to be honest as the way it was used is too "slangy" when they could have positioned themselves in a multitude of ways that are more related to their identity as a website which uncovers news (and breaking news) specifically that digital is a very responsive way of announcing things.
