Late Breaking News

I saw "Control Room", a new documentary about the Al Jazeera satellite news network, tonight. The movie wasn't all that informative in the sense that didn't include many hard facts about the news organization, though I do think it did a fairly good job of catching the atmosphere of Al Jazeera and the mentality of its staff. "Control Room" also showed the meida operations surrounding the Iraq War, from the PR officers a Coalition Central Command to reporters from mainstream American television stations like CNN and FOX, which was rather interesting. Complaints about the lack of "objectivity" and "professionalism" on the part of Al Jazeera are undermined greatly when you see how the American press handled themselves, epsecially now knowing what we know about the failure of the US Media to do its job.
