Arab Media Reaction to Republican Convention

CNN has been examining the media reaction by international television channels, blogs and newspapers to the Republican National Convention in the USA.

They look at McCain’s timing of the announcement of his running mate, his choice of a prospective VP and how this decision took the anticipated ‘bump’ and afterglow away from Senator Obama’s party.

There is a comparison of the two tickets and some Arab media commentators are analyzing the influence of Hurricane Gustav and wondering whether Allah was acting to favor one convention and blow away the other.

Check out the video and see what your reaction is to the Arab media coverage.
