Bahrain: Liliane Khalil, Another Blog Hoax?

Read this post.
Fakers, fakers everywhere! From Peter Coffin's make-believe internet lover to a ficticious gay girl in Damascus, to this :::On 2 August 2011, British blogger and PhD Student, Marc Owen Jones wrote a post about his investigation into the identity of an alleged Arab-American Journalist named Liliane Khalil. Jones traced back all the social media accounts of this persona, only to discover that most of what she had written about herself turned out to be false.

The editor-in-chief of Obaasema Magazine is NOT a hoax!

She is truly a hard-working, ambitious, tenacious Ghanaian woman who goes after what she wants in life to achieve success.

Meet Blogger And Journalist Linda Annan ::: Interviewed by Steve Sharra, Linda talks about blogging, her passion for knowledge sharing and women’s empowerment, Obaasema magazine, and all the many other things she does on the Internet. The complete interview is on Global Voices. Access Granted!

Linda is founder and editor of Obaasema, an online magazine for women. Obaasema means “ideal woman” in Twi, a Ghanaian language. Established in 2006, the magazine has a website, a YouTube channel, an online television version, a Facebook page, and is also on Twitter. Linda received her education at Bernard M. Baruch College, New York; with a BA in Corporate Communication/Business Journalism (2005). She believes in challenging herself to go beyond a set norm and continues to prosper with her endeavors.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
