American coverage of Lebanese elections...

Hey guys, the Christian Science Monitor is one of those rare American news services that actually takes that extra step when trying to convey and explain foreign developments to their American readers. They asked me (as they did Mustapha) to link up their coverage of the Lebanese elections. I haven't really read the stuff yet, but at a first glance the material they offer looks interesting:

Profile of voters
Forum of Comments
Commentary

They also claim that they'll have updates as soon as the elections are over.

That's interesting. They have had it for over 2 weeks now; I had it linked on Open Lebanon in Articles.
It's strange they only contacted you now. I think the Washington Post has more serious coverage; they had 4 reporters there.

I was curious to know who else they contacted, TM. I'm sure they know you have them linked up, and they're pushing for more links.

As for WashPost, I guess I'll take your word for it. For me, I guess, the more the merrier!
