Egypt: Al Jazeera publishing audio reports from correspondents

After crackdown by the Egyptian government, and the arrest and subsequent release of some 6 correspondents, Al Jazeera continues coverage in Egypt. This web page contains live audio updates from reporters in the field. I am in agreement with those who describe the network's outstanding performance during this news cycle as cable's "sputnik moment."


  1. Sputnik moment? Is that like, when Americans go, “OMG! We’re not #1!?!”
    (If so, … It’s been a looooong time, in the cable news field.).

    I think Sputnik moment must mean something – I just can’t guess what. I will say that the Al Jazeera app, now takes pride of place next to my BBC World.

  2. I wonder how much of this unrest is a result of several days of Al Jazeeras very Glen Beck mock trial against the Palestinian Authority(which I have very little love for as a quasi-government) on the Arabic side. Very unprofessional for a journalist organization to do such a thing. Ya hear that Fox News?
