If you’re a fan of the PBS stations like I am, perhaps you know about WorldFocus, a news show that debuted recently that delivers world news to an American audience. Because American news media is almost entirely focused on domestic news, WorldFocus “partners with international news organizations” to bring news from outside the US borders into the US for American audiences. It’s rather fascinating, really. I’m hooked – which is not a good thing. I don’t have that much time. Of course, their decision to place their broadcasts online? Freaking BRILLIANT. OMG. Thank you.
Here’s one story that you might like to ponder: the state of journalism in Egypt, and the campaign of harrassment that faces bloggers in Egypt, as religious culture and western media collide, and as more Egyptians have access to the internet. There’s an additional online only segment about two specific bloggers and their activism.
I know we have a few readers who currently reside in Egypt, and I’m curious what they think of this story. It’s certainly a timely reminder of the fact that I take my ability to write about romance, sex, mantitty, Hasselhoff, and feminism for granted. I don’t know if I can express how much I adore writing here, and reading what y’all say. Thank you for coming by.
