Apropos the manipulation of reality, check out this video that Al Jazeera English gave a link to:
The kids are very animated and engrossed in their "dialog". Does their dialog make any more sense than the captions that have beed added about Libya?
It was a story supposedly about the media manipulation in the Ivory Coast, see http://english.aljazeera.net/programmes/listeningpost/2011/04/201149855326742.html
I was disappointed in the text of the page. It seemed to barely touch the Ivory Coast, but listed stories in many other areas.
But then I discovered that I was only being teased to listen to and watch a 25 minute program - Listening Post.
BTW, Radio des Nations Unies has been covering Côte d'Ivoire extensively on its 15-minute daily podcast. Unfortunately, my French is not good enough to get more than a general sense of what is being said.
