Gadhafi's most public weapon: The ferocious anchorwoman of Libya's state TV
Hala Misrati once wrote romance tales about lost love. Now she's the ferocious face of Libya's regime, a star talk-show host on state TV lashing out daily against Moammar Gadhafi's enemies.

She railed against a Libyan woman who claimed to Western journalists she had been raped by Gadhafi militiamen, calling her a liar and suggesting she was a whore. On live TV, Ms. Misrati grilled an arrested journalist for an hour with all the doggedness of a secret police interrogator.

Say the things that you said in your recordings! she barked at the journalist, Rana al-Aqbani, apparently referring to taped recordings of al-Aqbani's phone calls, as she tried to make her acknowledge that she sought Mr. Gadhafi's ouster. Al-Aqbani, a Tripoli-based journalist, has since disappeared.

With her attack-dog demeanour, Ms. Misrati stands out even in the field of presenters of state-run news channels throughout Arab countries, whose autopilot response has been to denounce protesters in the anti-government uprisings around the Middle East.

1. She's a woman who uses her looks to get over. I'd say she's more like Libya's Megyn Kelly
