    Imagine this hypocrite of a loser ran for president? Selling to an anti American organization and jamming it through to get the lower cap gains. And the fools on this board sticking up for him that will never even be in the same room with 400 million. 


    On that score, foxnews is far more of an "anti-american organization", given their brand of rancor and dyspeptic leavings.

    And all of a sudden we have to be rich to talk about the rich...?  Who fed you that line of bologna...??

    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.

    Wash Post:

    "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.

    Al Jazeera is  "owned by the state of Qatar through the Qatar Media Corporation and headquartered in Doha, Qatar."

    Hey, just another "state run media" outlet,  kind of like MSNBC with an Arabic accent.




    There are many Americans living and working in Qatar. Do you have a problem with this country's big oil companies deals with Qatar? Have you ever watched Al Jazeera? Didn't think so.
