I got an error message saying it is not permitted to link to that website.
Al Jazeera? I don't believe they're blacklisted here... heck, do we even have
a blacklist? I should probably check that.
It's unfortunate that we can't this kind of decent-quality analysis from US/UK-based online news sites anymore, at least not on a regular basis.
And I see they're still touting this "we need more women" line, and pointing at their so-called "campus ambassador program" as if it's going to have any effect on their gender disparity whatsoever. I suppose what people like myself view as "lazy journalism" is often nothing more than an unwillingness on the part of reporters and their editors to point out the inherent absurdity of the things people say, or even make any attempt to analyze those things as such... I wonder if the owners of these sites have done studies of how long or detailed a typical web-news piece can be before people click elsewhere?
And do AlJazeera-in-English readers have longer attention spans than most people?
