Glued to Al Jazeera English

I’m sure that I am among thousands of people who have turned to Al Jazeera English to keep up with the unrest in Egypt.

My friends and colleagues have been corresponding through Facebook and Twitter about our thoughts on AJE’s coverage. We all agree that it has been outstanding and has outpaced the U.S.-based networks.

As I was writing this, CNN’s Howard Kurtz posted a link on his Twitter account (@HowardKurtz) to an interview with Abderrahim Foukara, Washington bureau chief for Al Jazeera. Foukara speaks about Al Jazeera’s coverage and discusses how other organizations (including the U.S. government) are sometimes critical of his network.
