When I was in Dubai I got incredibly hooked on Al Jazeera. It’s basically the Arabic world’s BBC and one thing I really enjoy about it is it focuses on world events that we barely hear about or are mentioned only in vague detail in the Australian media. Plus they show amazing documentaries.
Another pro is that they have incredible photographs on their website. I wish they would publish a book because there are some jaw dropping images. Here are a selection of those they’ve published on their website from the Egyptian protests.

Oh dear, they’re just reporting men on horses and camels (SO Middle Eastern!) are attacking people protestors :(
