» Cedar Revolution from Polemic Propaganda
It's a good thing. What's a bad thing is the triumphalism accorded based on what Ed Kilgore rightly denoted as the old post hoc ergo propter hoc (after this, therefore because of this) logical fallacy. Though it is true that we have been rhetorically s... [Read More]

» Arab "new" media from diablog
We need to understand all of the factors involved here, as well as how they all interact. I think we can agree that it's far too simplistic to say, Bush did this. [Read More]

» Brass Crescent Links Roundup from City of Brass
This will likely be a regular feature - a brief but more in-depth look at some of the best posts in the Brass Crescent out there. Take a look. [Read More]

» Credit and counterfactuals from Political Animal
Credit and counterfactuals... When Kevin asked me to guest-blog, he said that he was hoping for yet another piece giving al-Jazeera all the credit. I'll try to get you all another one of those some time this week, but I... [Read More]

» Defending Al-Jazeera from Dean's World

In response to our earlier conversation about the Free Muslim coalition's appearance on Al-Jazeera, Aziz Poonawalla sends along this fascinating set of links on Al-Jazeera. I found them most interesting reading:

Hisham Milhem is the bomb. Didn't know he had a talk show on Al Arabiya.

Also didn't know that Asa'ad had a Jewish wife before. He's a cosmopolitan wunderkind!

When you couple a pan-arab media with the internet it's incindiary. I'm fascinated by the commentary thread at Syria Comment. I'm equally fascinated when Iraq the Model translates comments from the BBC Arab forums. Has there ever been a war where the respective citizens of the two countries at war fed one another a stream information and ideas?

In a parallel world, China today was complaining about the US dominance of the internet. China anticipates 120 million internet users by 2005. Yesterday, the NY Times had an article on China's war with Vietnam in 1979, "Was the War Pointless? China Shows How to Bury It." China is discovering they can't bury this war, "Today, veterans often cling to these explanations but also fume about being used as cannon fodder in a cynical political game. "We were sacrificed for politics, and it's not just me who feels this way - lots of comrades do, and we communicate our thoughts via the Internet,"

Kishore Mahbubani, Singapore’s former Ambassador to the United Nations,
"The Al-Jazeera effect may well turn out to be one of the most important forces in creating a real sense of solidarity among the 1.2 billion Muslims who once lived in relatively distinct and separate communities. Al-Jazeera is now broadcast in Malaysia and Indonesia, with Malay voiceover."

Another unlikely source.

Nicholas Weininger

Since 1989 analogies seem to be in fashion right now, I'll wonder out loud if anyone has done/is doing a comparative study of the al-Jazeera effect vs. the effect of broader availability of information from the West (via RFE/RL, samizdat, etc) on the collapse of the Soviet bloc.
