The war continues and now it's becoming the 2nd hand story in the media's coverege. Since the start of the war, I haven't been able to stand more than 10 minutes infront of the TV. The coverage is so terrible and does not have any journalistic value. The whole tragedy was being reported as a video game for entertainment of the western audience. Even in alternative sources like Guardian, I couldn't find that much of alternative reporting. Maybe that's because the alies are not letting alternative resources to get a hold of the scenes. Today I read that the sale of Aljazeera satelite channel has been doubled in Europe. One interesting resource that I keep hearing, a personal weblog from Baghdad named Salam Pax . Still people are doubtful the fact that the weblog is being written in Iraq. But so far it sounds to be a valid claim.
