Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Bye Bye CNN

As much as I like friends and colleagues at CNN, this has been a defining moment for CNN – as if more were needed.

There is now no reason to watch CNN for international news when it counts or otherwise – the gap in seriousness, and the errors and limitations of coverage, compared to Al Jazeera english are so gaping that this seems to me like the Gulf war I moment….when the 24 hours newsbiz changed.

When Ben Wederman moves ot AJI that will be the final nail…. and the dollars will, at some point, follow. Countdown has only accelerated.

I just saw Mike Holmes refer to al arabiyya as Egyptian state TV…looking right at it.
