Re: <nettime> are there anymore porto alegre reports?

Hi Geert,

during the meeting in Porto Alegre, I've being trying to find English 
speaking papers covering the news.
I could not find any.

Not the IHT, not NYTimes, not LATimes, not the British papers. CNN 
have been showing the folkloristic side of it.

Finally i was told Financial Times it has being the only English 
speaking newspaper regularly covering the Forum.  And it is amazing 
considering Le Monde, Liberation, the Italian papers, and I guess 
most of the Europeans press, had the news in the front page almost 
every day.
(I read those papers on line)

Here actually the only trace I could find in the Independent (UK) 
about Porto Alegre, but the topic of the article is about something 
else and Porto Alegre is only mentioned.

I know ( i guess) nettimers are aware the press did not cover the 
Forum, and, frankly,  I would like to know which newspapers they read 
and in which way nettimers keep themselves up to date with news that 
English speaking press volontary try to hide.
