A sign of how AlJazeera English has changed: Before “Operation Cast Lead” in 2008/09, AJE had two excellent Arabic-speaking reporters (Sherine Tadros and Ayman Mohyeldin) already in Gaza who were able to cover the three weeks of horror from the inside while other networks were stuck outside gathered atop a hill next to cheering Israelis. Now, while Israel is again bombing the shit out of Gaza who does AJE have? Former CNN correspondent Cal Perry who I don’t think speaks any Arabic and is reporting from … Jerusalem.

An anonymous source (“Middle East-based journalist”) sent this to As’ad AbuKhalil, The Angry Arab (via darling80m)
