Middle East Report does not hesitate to be critical of US foreign policy in the region and is respected for its independence. According to a leading analyst, Graham Fuller of the Rand Corporation, "Middle East Report is the single most valuable periodical I receive on Middle East affairs, offering a wealth of material unavailable elsewhere. This outstanding journal provides truly fresh, unconventional, insightful information and views that are still essential to my research even years after publication." Middle East Report has thousands of subscribers, and a readership considerably enlarged by more than 700 subscriptions to university libraries and other institutions. Additional copies of the magazine are sold in bookstores and newsstands throughout the US and Europe. While the circulation of Middle East Report is limited in the Middle East, the magazine has developed a loyal following among prominent scholars and intellectuals from the region. Middle East Report is published four times a year, and most 48-page issues focus on a specific theme. The magazine serves as a resource for academic specialists but is also accessible to the general public. Many issues include "primers" which provide basic but essential background on a theme or a country. Every year, American university professors order back issues of Middle East Report to assign readings to their students. The electronic arm of the magazine, Middle East Report Online, provides timely analyses of breaking news stories, distributed via e-mail and archived at MERIP’s website.

Huh? Not found in the middle east wonder what gives with that?

Now on to the famous Press TV.

And finally aljazeera

Based in the tiny Gulf state of Qatar, al-Jazeera began broadcasting in 1996. Initially, many of its staff were recruited from the BBC which had launched an Arabic TV channel a couple of years earlier, only to close it down as a result of censorship attempts by Saudi Arabia, which controlled the relevant satellite.

Although funded by the Qatari government, al-Jazeera was given (in Arab terms) an unprecedented measure of editorial freedom. The professionalism of its news coverage, plus studio discussions which raised many previously-taboo issues, soon won it a huge audience in the Arabic-speaking countries.

Al-Jazeera began to attract widespread attention in the west in 2001. It was the only TV station with a permanent 24-hour satellite link to Kabul during the Afghan war and its exclusive footage was used by many western channels. It also became famous (or notorious) for broacasting videotaped messages from al-Qaida leaders.

Al-Jazeera's bureau in Kabul was bombed by the US during the Afghan war, as was its bureau in Baghdad during the US-led invasion of Iraq. It was later reported that President Bush had wanted to bomb al-Jazeera's headquarters in Qatar too, but had been discouraged from doing so by the British prime minister, Tony Blair.

Despite the hostility of the Bush administration towards it, al-Jazeera's historical role in promoting the free flow of information and opening up political debate in the Middle East is diffcult to over-estimate.

The English-language sister channel, al-Jazeera English, began broadcasting on 15 November, 2006. Its programmes can be viewed online via the channel's website.

In Arabic "al-jazeera" means "the island" - a term also used to refer to the Arabian peninsula. Some say the TV station's name refers more specifically to its home country, Qatar, which is itelf a peninsula attached to the Arabian peninsula.

The distinctive gold logo is said to resemble a droplet of water. Its calligraphic design spells "al-Jazeera" in Arabic. The logo, which has become one of the world's most widely recognised brand labels, was chosen by the emir of Qatar as the winning entry in a design competition. It was reputedly designed in 20 minutes by a Qatari man who heard about the competition on his car radio.

Pretty bad when you make yourself a miliarty target! Nothing but a cash cow for Qatar. How do you think they are able to make those big buildings and pay for them?

Pretty bad when your opening paragraph contains looking for funds. Anything to turn a buck it looks like.

Which ever propaganda machine you choose just don't sue me for defective products!! I'm pretty unbiased when it comes to news I tend to look past the headlines. Seem like there isn't ONE good outlet from that region anyone can trust to present the truth without a spin.
