The Lebanese Daily Star calls new arab media like Al-Jazeera a marriage of Madonna and Osama -- the worst of both worlds:
These media may represent a sophisticated move by the ruling Arab establishments to cater and respond to their people's legitimate political anger and emotional angst, and safely channel these emotions through a release of tension every evening, thus solidifying rather than shaking the existing political order.
Madonna, however, hardly represents the worst of the west [link from Alternet's new media news log].
