Nice of you to provide a corner for peoples' soapboxes.
I encourage multiple points of view.
It's useful to know what others think, and vital to know what your enemies think.
For the open minded:
Al-Jazeera News, now in English
My fave for the world's news is BBCworldnews:

I like the BBC for the outsider's viewpoint of the news. It helps to establish what might be spin and what might be the facts when contrasted to other news stories of the same subject.
My approval for Bush would be a little higher had he authorized bombing Al Jazeera to a smoking ash pit in the ground. I hate them. There is no need to see what they would say in English, we already know.

I actually think that Deutsche Welle (DWTV) is a great news provider. Its another outside source for news from Germany which is delivered in such a ridiculously precise German way. There is now wild editing or fast cuts in their news broadcast, and they simply state the facts. Its quite refreshing compared to over dramatized news in the united states which is more like entertainment. They have some links for video on demand that you can stream through realplayer. If you want to see general world news, select their "Journal" broadcast which is updated daily.

Ryan-Thanks for the link, I used to listen to them years ago on shortwave and their news was top notch, I will have to check out their site. I also like the BBC, for updates on the Mid-East I check out the Daily Star an english language newspaper in Beirut and Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper with an english website.
