Were Expectations Fulfilled on the 6th?

Reader comment on item: Examining Qatar's Influence
in response to reader comment: Expectations - of a Greater Sort

Submitted by MTovey (United States), Feb 7, 2019 at 19:08

The News Media Outlets covered what they wanted: were they satisfied? Who can tell; they are specific only when they gratified in their own lusts for power over their audiences. Such is Al-Jazeera.

Were the audiences satisfied? Unknown yet; for sometimes they never get their fill.

If the means are said to be justified in the process of reaching a certain goal: when is that expectation fulfilled if the results of the cause are withheld because it did not meet the goal of the expectation....an endless conundrum........
