Opposition leader Michel Aoun has launched his own television channel, OTV, hoping to set "new standards of objectivity" at a time when Lebanon is facing its most serious political crisis in years. OTV, short for Orange TV - the color of Aoun's Free Patriotic Movement political party - went on the air late Friday with a news bulletin followed by a lengthy interview with Aoun, a political leader who heads the largest Christian bloc in Parliament. "We will strive to set new standards of objectivity," Dima Sadeq, an OTV news presenter, told The Associated Press on Saturday. "We will not be the voice for any particular political faction." "Even if we reflect the opposition's point of view, this will be done objectively," she added.
