'Gaddafi TV' as it is less than affectionately referred to by Tweeps - otherwise known as Libyan State TV, has been ordered off the air by the Cairo Administrative Court on Monday, according to the official MENA news agency.
Lawsuits had been filed against the station by Libyan nationals and lawyers in Egypt for inciting violence against civilians who oppose Muammar Gaddafi and his regime.
The resistance has claimed since the beginning of the uprising that the TV station has been sending co-ordinates and instructions to Gaddafi's Libyan Generals on the frontlines in Misrata and in the Western Mountains, where random indiscriminate shelling of civilian's homes has cost thousands of lives since Feb.17.
The station has consistently reported grossly exaggerated and false accounts of civilian deaths, even going so far as to accuse NATO of bombing the Tripoli station in June, a claim which had absolutely no basis in fact.
More propoganda and lies spread by the station included the character assassination and degradation on air of Eman Al-Obeidi during an 'interrogation' with authorities during which she was shown lying on the floor while food and other objects were thrown at her while she was verbally insulted. The Libyan woman had been arrested by government thugs at the Rixos Hotel in Tripoli after she had claimed being gang raped by Gaddafi's men at a checkpoint, and although she was actually a lawyer the TV Station reported falsely that she was a thief and a prostitute in an attempt to discredit her claims.
