Move over, Uncle Sam

Julia Day, The Guardian, February 3:

"Arabic-language media have an unprecedented chance to take over as the world's premier news source because trust in their US counterparts plummeted following their 'shameful coverage' of the war in Iraq, a conference heard today.

"The US media reached an 'all-time low' in failing to reflect public opinion and Americans' desire for trusted information, instead acting as a 'cheerleader' for war, said Amy Goodman, the executive producer and host of US TV and radio news show Democracy Now!, at a news forum organised by al-Jazeera.

"Newsweek's Paris bureau chief, Christopher Dickey, said the US media were dying because of cutbacks and weren't interested in covering the world outside America."
