Just days before the Iraqi war, Jehane Noujaim (Startup.com), gained extraordinary access to the Al Jazeera network. As US Spin division Centcom moved to control all wartime media coverage, Al Jazeera fought for independence with tragic consequences. Noujaim never takes a cheap shots (take note Michael Moore) but concentrates on individual stories from both sides, often with telling, moving and frequently comic results.
