Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera just recently launched an English version of its site: http://english.aljazeera.net/

Interesting. (Note: it doesn't work right in my versions of Phoenix and Mozilla - many pages showed up blank or missing text. I'd recommend using IE for now.)

They seem to have a distinctly anti-American slant to their writings, which doesn't entirely shock me. Interestingly, the articles on the English version of the site seem somewhat censored... compare some of the images on the English version to those on the Arabic version.

Some rather disturbing images from the Arabic version (if you're at all squeamish, I highly recommend avoiding these - you've been warned): http://www.aljazeera.net/news/Arabic/2003/3/3-22-26.htm
