    Oh of course not, but that still means there were some (in fact quite a few) civilian deaths due to US military force.

    Of course, the idea that Saddam and AlJ might not be legit has never crossed your mind?
    First off.. Saddam hated Al J. They were some of the first and the most vocal opponents to his regime. That is one of the reasons the Bush administrations loved Al J in the start.

    Second off.. Al J has a code of ethics that it follows quite strictly and it certainly does not like meddling by outsiders or even by the owners in its news coverage. Rumsfeldt and Bush put a lot of pressure on the Al J owners and when the owners told Al J to tone down .. the journalists basically threatened to strike.

    This, of course, is aside from the basic nature of such "journalism", as the obvious purpose is not to report the news but to emotionally sway the public and encourage terrorists.
    That is utter bull**** and you know it. Al J has never encouraged terrorists.. in fact they have been highly vocal against Al Q and been extremely critical (even more than Fox News) of their actions. But what they dont do, unlike Fox News, is to coat the news in bias for one or another side.. they do both sides and for the most part allow the viewer to make up their own mind.

    That is why, on Al Jazeera I see Israeli representative's far more than on the BBC, CNN, NBC and what not..almost combined. They do both sides of the story and often go after the big guy for abusing the small guy. Their English station has a lot of investigative journalism where they go after major companies, Putin, Chavez, Castro, Obama, and pretty much every major power on the planet for their abuses and wrong doings. That is what real journalism is about.

    You thought those images of the "truth" were very important, didn't you?
    You mean like the images of a US attack helicopter butchering Iraq citizens? Yes they are very important! Exposing such acts is just as important as exposing a terrorist cell or showing the aftermath of a terrorist attack. But I guess you have no problem that US troops butcher an Iraqi family in a car... they are only ragheads right?

    Low-info people find anything plausible.
    As I said, I see their editorial content as pretty biased against Israel, but many people do hold that position, and some can even offer a cursory defense of it. So it's not something that should swept under the rug and "banned" from discussion.

    You're wrong and your low-information on this is showing. Are you a Muslim?

    Perhaps you're confusing "not blindly adoring of Israel" with "biased against Israel."

    If it were any two other countries and any two other ethnic groups, we'd be calling the situation in the Gaza strip apartheid.

    The same can be said of CNN International. Despite all the conspiracy bull **** about it, news, especially news in the US, is a business. They broadcast what will attract the most viewers since more viewers = higher prices for advertising.

    Anyone want to know what a 30 second ad goes for on this year's Super Bowl? $3.5 MILLION. Thirty seconds. It's not about sheep or conspiracies. The only conspiracy here it for news business owners to make money.

    At first I thought you were kidding, then I looked at your political lean, and now it makes perfect sense.

    Nope. The name is the only obstacle. The American bias toward Al Jazeera is strictly based on a perception that it's anti-Semitic/anti-American, and that prejudice is due to the station's name.

    Change the station's name, and Americans (notably right wing America) will be duped into thinking it's the right kind of news

    That's what you think, given your perspective and opinions. And I think your position on this is crap.

    So what Al Jazeera needs to do is rename their American station to something like The Conservative American News Network. Then, when people like Travis007 watch it, they will watch it with joy believing that it tells them what is real because the station name doesn't sound Muslim.
    You got it all figured out dont ya...

    your talking to someone who lived though 9/11..who hass followed the jihad and how it operates for over 17 years...
