Three Cheers for Al-Jazeera!!!

Ali, our Free Iraqi friend, today offers us a trenchant analysis of the subtext slippage that Al-Jazeera has been experiencing the last couple years.

Ali writes that "[B]oth channels [Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya] offered a great service to democracy and freedom in the ME even when they wanted exactly the opposite! For example, Al Jazzera focused, as part of its coverage for the 'deteriorated situations in Iraq' on every single demonstration against the interim government or the American presence in Iraq even if it was 10 people that are demonstrating! But this coverage, that was missed in the official Arab media most of the times, showed the Arab street an unusual scene. 'Arab' citizens demonstrating freely against their government and the supposed brutal occupiers under the eyes of police!"

C'mon, don't hang around here. Go read the whole thing.


However, if you want nudity and a burning mattress, go here.
