    Yeah, they're great. Just as fair and balanced as Fox News.

    Al Gore taking oil money isn't even the best part.











    Oh, what is the best part?







    They rushed the deal so that it wouldn't get hit with higher tax rates.

    Fox is more blatant about it, but the best way to get across a lie or a biased point of view is to tell the truth most of the time in order to build trust then slip in the bias in small doses.

    So in other words they are less biased.

    People often fail to differentiate between Al-Jazeera English and Al-Jazeera Arabic which are separately funded, managed, and staffed. Al-Jazeera English is a quality international broadcaster on par with the BBC, CNN, etc. It is emphatically not another Russia Today or PressTV. Neither for that matter is Al-Jazeera Arabic, however saying that it is up to the same standards as the English version is not true. But this bias is rarely directed against the United States though there is evidence of story positioning and some issues with commentary (there are some religious programming that has slid into arguably anti-semitic and anti-western rhetoric) instead the most common allegations have been inter-Arab. Bahrain is actually a great example where al-Jazeera Arabic's coverage was particularly harsh of the uprising and framed the Gulf security narrative instead of the story, while Al-Jazeera English mostly avoided it.

    Perhaps. Certainly not the pillers of truth some purport them to be.

    Yes but they are leaps and bounds better than current American news.

    Because they don't have the latest updates on Brittany Spears and Bradgelina? That is a plus.
