Opinion Journal: http://www.opinionjournal.com/


Foreign News
With the help of our Tunku Varadarajan, we've compiled a list of interesting international news sources:

  • Pakistan: Dawn, the nation's leading English-language paper, is relatively moderate and internationalist. The Frontier Post is a provincial paper published in Peshawar, on the Afghan border. The English is eccentric, but it's a useful source of local news.
  • India: The Times of India is the leading paper and most reliable source of news. The Hindustan Times, a local New Delhi paper, is good for regional color.
  • Israel: The two English-language dailies are the Jerusalem Post and Ha'aretz.
  • Australia: The Sydney Morning Herald is the time-zone leader. Since Sydney is 13 hours later than New York, you can read tomorrow's news today.
  • Britain: The Telegraph is a clever, conservative, pro-American daily. The Guardian is a clever, liberal, anti-American daily.
  • China: People's Daily is the English-language version of the official government organ.
  • Russia: The Moscow Times provides an Enlgish-language view from Russia, where memories of Afghanistan are still fresh.
