late night tv
just had an absolutely hectic weekend, with no time to post. i'm too tired to say much, but i did watch the film "control room" which TV1 aired late last night. it's a pity the good stuff has to be on so late. it's an excellent documentary about al-jazeera's coverage of the iraq war. i'm really glad we're getting more of al-jazeera's coverage here, and i'm a real fan of not-for-profit news programming. when the news doesn't have to provide a return on investment for its shareholders or win a ratings war, you actually get some decent coverage. and al-jazeera proves that providing fair and honest coverage does actually get you the ratings as well.
