There has been another deluge of information released on Wikileaks - this time about the war in Iraq. But many of the resulting stories have focused on Julian Assange's character as much as on the contents of the leaked documents. Has the media missed the mark or has the Wikileaks front man become a liability for the organisation? The Listening Post this week looks at how the media has become more interested in the life of one man than the deaths of 109000 Iraqis.

This week on The Listening Post - reporting the Afghan war: Time magazine's shocking cover story walks the thin line between editorial and editorialising. And we lay out the pros and the cons of embedded journalism coming to us from the battlefields of Afghanistan.
Did you donate any money to Haiti after the earthquake? Have you donated money to Pakistan to help victims of the floods there? A lot of people can answer yes to the first question, but not so many to the second. What was it about these floods that stopped people dipping into their pockets? We have seen wide shots of saturated fields, families trapped on crudely fashioned lifeboats, villagers left homeless, starving and without clean drinking water. But even with all this we have not been nearly as charitable as we were after the earthquake in Haiti. On The Listening Post this week, we ask: What is about the images of this disaster that fail to evoke the same compassion that others have done? Was it the way the media told the story or are there more complex, perhaps darker reasons behind it?
On this week's show: A look at the commotion caused by the latest WikiLeaks leak and how this leak differs from the rest. Plus, will Rupert Murdoch's decision to charge for Times online content pay off?

Its the black land of Egypt, where the story of Aly & Fila came to life. 5000 years of genesis - including its world-famous pharaohs, pyramids and ancient civilization - later, another thing became part of its culture. Pure trance music, from the hands of Aly Amr Fathalah and Fadi Wassef Naguib. For Aly & Fila, things really kicked off in 2003, when their Eye of Horus turned into a big club hit, played out by all trance-minded A-list DJs. It would soon be clear that the Egyptian producers were much more than a one-hit wonder. In the years following, Aly & Fila released a slew of club-scorching, chart-hitting trance tracks and remixes, of which Spirit of Ka, Ankh Breath of Life and Lost Language managed to put millions of trance fans into a frenzy. Outside the studio, Aly & Fila became known for their all round appeal to audiences around the globe. All the energy of their gigs at major festivals, nightclubs and events came together in the 2009 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll, where Aly & Fila climbed all the way to the 22nd position. To Aly & Fila however, their journey in music is about more than just popularity. Clear evidence of that, is their very own Future Sound of Egypt label, part of Armada Music. The label is set up to release high quality trance by some of the worlds most talented and passionate producers. Aly & Fila feel right at ...
This week on the Listening Post's radar: the tweet that ended the 20-year career of a CNN journalist and a Russian social networking site that is not for the masses but strictly for those of class.
When ten alleged Russian spies were arrested in the United States it made front pages around the world. Like most international stories, how those headlines read in the various countries involved, was a story in itself. In the United States, news agencies went back to Cold War templates to tell the story. But in the scramble to file those reports, many journalists neglected to ask some of the fundamental questions relating to the source, and timing of this story. Those questions were tackled however, in the Russian media but some of the theoretical motivations given, exposed flaws in their reporting as well. Our News Divide goes beyond the spoon-fed narrative, the political conspiracies and domestic perspectives to look at the bigger picture and how intelligence agencies are still managing to manipulate the media.
