This should happen more often on American television: On Wednesday, two Jordanian journalists debating the civil war in Syria tried to fight each other live on television, destroying the studio in the process.

Shaker Al-Johari (right) and Mohammed Al-Jayousi (left) were discussing the Syrian crisis on Between Opposing Opinions, a news program that airs on Jordanian television channel 7 Stars.

From the Telegraph:

Mohammed Al-Jayousi seemingly provoked Al-Johari by accusing him of being 'deviant' and supporting the Syrian revolution.

Al-Johari responded by accusing Al-Jayousi of supporting the Syrian regime in exchange for money, to which Al-Jayousi responded, "Shut up". Al-Johari then got up from his seat and the two started shoving the table top at one another.

Eventually, producers and others on set separate the two. No charges will be filed, according to Reuters.
