Coverage of the situation in Gaza

In Policy Blog on January 11, 2009 at 1:15 am

Two more sources for ongoing coverage of the Israeli attacks on Gaza: 

Updates from the Israeli paper Haaretz— Isreal’s oldest newspaper; considered to be analytical and highly influential with intellectuals and the political class.

Updates from Al Jazeera— A regional news network broadcast all over the Middle East, mostly in Arabic.

Both relatively moderate and well-respected news sources.  It is interesting to see the way the unfolding events in Gaza are reported and the different angles on stories.  I was really struck by the use of images by the two sites.

Update 13 January 2009:  NYT points out that Al Jazeera has the distinct advantage of having people on the ground.
