Mosaic: What American TV News Is Not

Tired of one-sided, rah-rah Israel news coverage? Link TV has compiled reports from several Middle Eastern news agencies, including one from Israel. What's suprising is how balanced most of them are. Most show both sides (sometimes more) of the story and don't play the sympathy card. But they do show some of the carnage, so you can know what this war is costing Israel and Lebanon. Listening to a statement from Nasrallah, the head of Hizbollah, on one of the broadcasts, I was surprised at how sane and reasonable he sounded--unlike, say, Bush and Rice.

DISCLAIMER: I deplore the deaths of civilians everywhere, but it just ain't right to show only Israeli deaths, especially when Lebanese deaths drawf theirs.
