    Thanks for the MEMRIs Joe but I hardly think that it is any more objective than others. These recommendations are a bit uniform:
     
    " the excellent Middle East Media Research Institute"
                          -Former CIA director James Woolsey, June 10, 2002

                     "Plenty of journalists leaned heavily on MEMRI's translations, citing 'the invaluable Middle East
                     Media Research Institute.' In fact, 'invaluable' has been written so often before MEMRI's name
                     that one could have been forgiven for thinking the word was part of the name. MEMRI served as
                     an antidote to darkness, as a way not to be ignorant. The veil has been lifted by MEMRI."
                          -Jay Nordlinger, National Review, May 6, 2002

                     "MEMRI does an outstanding job of reviewing the Arab language press. Knowing what is being
                     said about America and Israel is critical to understanding the Middle East. Holding Arab leaders
                     accountable for failure to refute outrageous lies about America and Israel is an important part of
                     our public diplomacy efforts and ultimately our Middle East policy."
                          - U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, February, 2002

    I wonder what Chomsky would say about them. Jeremy
