I would also recommend the language learning section of al-Jazeerah the news network here: اللغة الإنجليزية | تعلم العربية as well as this fantastic language learning blog: http://www.thearabicstudent.com/. With al-Jazeera you can find articles some even with a video and transcript, and the language learner blog posts video clips with a few MSA as well as various dialects and includes a transcript with explanations.
It may be less of a problem if your goal is just reading, but I have found that it is very difficult to read comfortably without a fair bit of exposure to the pronunciation. This is a combination of getting used to the new script, the fact that they don’t write short vowels, and that they have 9 new sounds for an English speaker to get used to. Therefore it is a big help when you can read along with the audio from a native speaker. Hope that helps and good luck with your language learning!
