In response to MattyScornD's comment:
Want to know what's really happening in the middle east?
BBC and Al-Jaz are pretty much the only worthy sources.
Personally, I love the idea of Al-Jaz establishing more of a reporting presence in the U.S. to show the rest of the Arab world that we're not all torture-loving warmongers.
How dumb is that statement? really, really dumb.
Al Jaz in English is watched by few viewers in the US, even fewer numbers in the rest of the world.
Al Jaz English is just an afterthought for the pure propaganda Al Jaz Arabic network.
"Al Jaz in Arabic is pure Al-Jazeera, for all its innovation, slick graphics and flashy logos, is not an Arab version of CNN. From watching the network for any length of time, it's clear that al-Jazeera takes a consistently hostile stance toward the United States. In al-Jazeera's world, the Taliban is invariably an underdog force, the United States looms as an occupying power, and Egypt and other moderate Arab states have knuckled under to the superpower's pressure. The channel's other central topic is Israel's persecution of Palestinians, a constant litany of suffering and aggression. Otherwise there is little on al-Jazeera except sports."
"The orientation of al-Jazeera has not escaped the notice of other Arab journalists, or of the people they cover. In one of many scoops the network has landed during the war in Afghanistan, anchor Ahmed Mansour recently interviewed a Pashtun leader, Sheik Abdurrab Rasul Sayyaf, whose support will be key in any postwar Afghan government.Sayyaf took al-Jazeera to task for what he called biased coverage. "The general perception here in Afghanistan is that al-Jazeera has crossed the line in their reporting," he said on the air. "They were very protective of the Taliban. I hear your reporter . . . all the time, and he always reports what the Taliban does, but he never tries to come and see the villages and towns burned by the Taliban."
Your problem is not biased coverage; it's your perception about anything that could even remotely be critical of the U.S....
...and it's your intellectual downfall.
But what else should I expect from a poster who's consistently blind to any point-of-view.
