Some different news for a change

Filed under: News and Comment — shippingpal @ 11:38 pm

Logging on to WordPress today, I see that three of the top 10 posts feature the words ‘Britney’ and ‘Spears.’  Not sure what I missed over the weekend or today while I was working… But one of the NY Times blogs has an interesting article about a new French news channel – in English – scheduled to debut in the next couple of days.  France 24, whose goal is to provide a French perspective on world news, looks to be a nice complement to Al-Jazeera in terms of getting away from the dominant Anglo-American worldview expressed on BBC, CNN and so on.  The fact that they are also broadcasting live on the Web is a nice touch too – very 21st century.

The other big news is that our radio commercials are now broadcasting on 680 News and CHFI, so readers in Toronto should keep an ear out. Everyone else can listen to it here.
