The vulgar reporting of the killing of Muammar Gaddafi by hypocritical, liberal Western media

The liberal Western English-language channels which we get to watch in India are indeed hypocritical. When Muammar Gaddafi was in power, the Western journalists were only too fascinated by personalities like Gaddafi and they would do anything to have an audience with him and get his interview. Of course, they would show a certain Western arrogance when they would ask questions about democratic rights. Meanwhile, Western governments would do their deals with the dictator and get their oil. The liberal media was indeed the scouting team for Western governments and business interests. There was of course never any declaration of their unstated interests and stakes. So, the dictators in the Arab world lived on from the money they earned from the West by selling the oil. None of the liberal media organisations ever told their people or their governments that there is need to snap economic ties with countries ruled by dictators.
So, it becomes very infuriating when one watches an arrogant and self-righteous and hypocritical John Simpson declaim on the evils of dictatorship and the triumph of democratic values. Simpson is but an example of the shamelessness of the so-called liberal Western media.
