Reading Pravda and Al-Jazeera

"Sometimes your enemies can teach you more than your friends are ever willing to disclose," writes Jim Goad — Insight from the Outside: Seeing the USA from Pravda and Al-Jazeera’s Eyes.

Of the former, he says, "I tend to agree with most of Pravda’s dire prognostications regarding the US, but I’m not so sure they needed to be such dicks about it." Of the latter, he says that instead of "little more than sand-scorching Quranic hate-speechifyin’ against all things Western" he "found what appears to be the most truly objective major news organization currently in existence."
