10 Lebanese Clickbait Headlines To Make Your Day

When all else fails: clickbait?

Lebanon’s primary media outlets have been struggling financially for quite some time. Talks have recently resumed about potentially bailing out some of Lebanon’s many struggling newspapers, after news surfaced about the financial struggles of Assafir, Annahar, and Al Mustaqbal newspapers. Long story short, we believe the bailout options are pretty ineffective.

Newspapers and news channels have been resorting to clickbait on their social media accounts to try to generate some revenue. To what extent is this strategy working? So far, it doesn’t look like it’s going to save them from financial collapse…but it sure is entertaining (and not for the reasons they’ve hoped for). Below are some of the most absurd clickbait posts from Lebanon’s mainstream media.
