I've been very impressed with the BBC World Service coverage of what's happening in Japan. So far it has been intensively sustained from the start of the situation, looking at the evolution of circumstances from many angles. They are not only covering the banner-line events, news style, but also bringing in expertise on various aspects of the crisis, in particular the nuclear power and humanitarian situations - to provide informed analytical insight. Of course, Libya has kind of taken back-seat to this, as one supposes it should, but they haven't lost sight of it; as well they are now ramping-up coverage of Bahrain, which many people may not realize - could be a much stickier wicket for international politics than is Libya. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation also has a highly respected news and current events organization which has also been very good. But getting back to Feppe's point, it remains true that as the onset and initial shock of a crisis recedes in time, the news interest falls away while the situation on the ground continues to be dire.
