KUWAIT SHUTS DOWN AL-JAZEERA
It's tough trying to run an independent news agency in a region dominated by authoritarian political culture. Thanks to some overly-intrepid reporting, Arab news network Al-Jazeera had it's Kuwait bureau shuttered by the government.

Al-Jazeera has gotten a bad rap in the States, due to the fact that the Bush administration considers it a forum for anti-American propaganda. From what I've seen, it's a fair, balanced news service. Looks like it can't win for losing.
