Media focuses on tsunami aftermath

The mainstream media remains, rightly, focused on the devastating effects of the tsunami in South East Asia that struck 2 days ago following a massive undersea earthquake, and the relief effort now underway. The BBC has a comprehensive article on its world news page while RTE reports that the death toll is likely to exceed 57,000. Calls for urgent aid and details on how to donate to the many agencies involved in the relief effort are liberally scattered throughout the reports, including the Belfast Telegraph and The Guardian Newsblog. The blogoshere is providing wider and more varied coverage with a dedicated blog covering the latest news and blog-evangelist Glenn Reynolds, despite an unfortunate choice of phrase in his post, has invaluable links to bloggers based in affected regions. The Guardian Newsblog also has other media links
