Meta Gaza

Chris Gilmour links to some blogs written from within Gaza: Gazablog Roundup

Peter Preston, writing in the Guardian, talks about the US print media's coverage of Israel's Gaza offensive: Israel barks, the US media wags its tail

Marc Lynch, writing as Abu Aardvark*, talks about how the Arabic language media is covering the crisis (and other stuff): 'Gaza' or 'Hamas' and Israel, Gaza, and Arab regional divisions


*a Cerebus reference, obv.

It's sad when some of the better political coverage in the US's "mainstream media" comes from the Comedy Channel.

I particularly liked the bit at the end of the clip re Israel's (dis)proportional response.
