I have been watching/listening to Al Jazeera and NHK World in the background for the past two days. Admittedly, I do not find their coverage so much different than what I would find on an American news network, but I like the opportunity to hear foreign perspectives and to realize the ways in which they may be both similar and contrasting with my own. Also, on a superficial level, I like hearing the subtle hints of the newscasters' and reporters' accents behind their flawless English.
This footage of the tsunami is absolutely frightening.
It starts off relatively innocuously, but the way in which this escalates had my heart pounding when I first watched it.
