Live and Uncensored from Iraq

By None:

As media coverage of the war heads into it's second full week of 24/7 news and commentary, Slate magazine has provided instructions on how to get Iraqi State Television on your computer. It takes a little technical futzing (since it's a satellite feed web-cast via Dutch TV supposedly only for residents of the Netherlands) but it only took me 5 minutes to work out. Of course, just because it's Saddam's official message doesn't make it interesting. It's mostly like public access - only with guns. Personally, I can't stop watching.
