Every once in a while I get the unbecoming urge to brag a little.
Here is a partial list of the journalistic scoops, interesting stories and original analysis that are simply not available in the Western media - just from this blog, just from this week:

Is there any professional, full-time journalist in the world who would not be proud to get this many scoops in a month, let alone a week?
