My first impressions of this blog site are similar to that of Al Arabiya -- a clearly identified, credible media site. The layout is more sophisticated than Al Arabiya's in my view.
I noticed a number of news items were from Western wire services, AP and Reuters in particular. I also noticed a great deal of difference between the Arabic and English versions of the site -- different art and seemingly different stories featured. This makes me wonder how different the two versions of the site are, as they appear, at least in a visual sense, to be separate entities. Perhaps someone who reads both languages can comment on this?
