Salam Adil on Al-Jazeera
A new force in Iraq news coverage is coming of age – the Iraqi blogosphere.
Inside and outside Iraq, bloggers report on events from their own perspective and give a voice to the community that they say often goes unheard in Western media.
Salam Adil, 38, an Iraqi blogger who lives in the United Kingdom, says: "I compared reporting from the BBC and the British newspapers to the [Iraqi] blogs and there is a world of difference.
"It is as if the Western media are on a different planet," he told Aljazeera.net.
