From Yasmine Ryan and Al Jazeera in English

I'm finding  interesting news reports from Al Jazeera which our Main Stream Media does not cover in depth.

How can we be good citizens if all we get is cotton candy for news. How can we contribute to our national governance if we do not read and challenge our own biases in an effort to be better informed. I had coffee with a friend today and of course the conversation came around to current events in the Middle East. Being the opinionated person I am, I shared the fact here in the US our main sources of news carry points of view only from the US perspective. This is a problem for us as US citizens and as citizens of the world.
