But how the old media rulebook could be applied to a new world of social media, where information crosses borders freely, was a tough hurdle, Progressive Socialist Party MP Bilal Abdallah said.Then, MPs discussed TV financing regulations, part of the same media bill.Yacoubian said her concerns with the bill extended far beyond that issue.Yacoubian also complained that the bill gave too much power to the National Media Council.Azar agreed that the bill required careful examination.According to Azar, the committee will need at least another month; Abdallah predicts longer.
