al jazeera's weekly programme 'listening post' has got to be one of the best media watchdog shows around. its range of issues and regions covered is outstanding. from the story of Maziar Bahari to how the media cover major global events such as haiti, the iraq war, the vatican and the china-google case. it's coverage of iran's media censorship is hard hitting.
this week's programme features the case of Octavia Nasr, a lebanese american who was recently sacked from her senior position in cnn for sending a tweet in remembrance of a deceased lebanese cleric. there are a couple of other stories, and the 23 minute episode ends with a superb short video picked from the best on the internet.
