    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.
    CNN is scum...

    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.



    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 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?

    what a waste of pixels.... you need an education..

    your fake outrage at selective news is comical...

    60,000 dead civis in Syria.. where are you?

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is pulling out all the stops in his bid to crush opposition to his authoritarian rule in the election scheduled for October 7. Chavez is seeking to discredit challenger Henrique Capriles Radonski by pointing out his Jewish roots. Chavez has sought to intimidate Venezuelan Jews in the past as a result of the close ties he has fostered with Iran and Hezbollah and his virulent hostility to Israel. But his attacks on the leader of the opposition have escalated the latent Jew-hatred of his regime.

    As the Jerusalem Post reports, a study conducted by Tel Aviv University shows that the Caracas government has produced a steady stream of vilification of Capriles that centers on his Jewish roots. Capriles is a Catholic but he is the grandson of Holocaust survivors and many of his mother’s family perished at the hands of the Nazis.

    “This is done in a variety of methods, such as defamation, intimidation and conspiracy theories, many of which portray Capriles as a Zionist agent, and by mixing classic and neo-anti-Semitism,” said the report, authored by Lidia Lerner, an expert on Latin America. “A Capriles victory, it is claimed, will inevitably lead to Zionist infiltration.” …

    Op-Eds warning of a “Zionist takeover” if Capriles wins repeatedly have appeared in government-controlled media since Radonski’s candidacy was announced in February, the report said. He also has been the subject of anti-Semitic cartoons.


    The Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Anti-Defamation League have expressed concern about the government’s attempt to whip up Jew hatred. The Huffington Post reported in May that Chavez’s allies have compounded the vilification by trying to float the rumor that Capriles is gay as well as Jewish. snip...

    Chavez Playing the Anti-Semitism Card Commentary Magazine
    I couldn't care less about Chavez running his small country a long way from us with pretty much no bearing on our country. I didn't even make a statement on Chavez other than I don't wish him to die. The only reason why Chavez is even being discussed is because you saw him in another poster's avatar and you wanted to troll that poster by saying you wish Chavez were dead soon. No one cares about Chavez in this thread.

    Thread topic:

    Al-Jazeera buys Current TV from Al Gore.....

    Now, would you like to comment on the thread topic or is this going to continue with you making constant personal attacks on everyone in and out of the thread you disagree with?

    How, it's just straight fact no political lean involved? What does being liberal have anything to do with Al Jazeera?

    Absolutely. Once it overcomes the name problem.
    What naming problem, I'm sure more people would watch AJE instead of Current TV.

    So does that extend to the BBC aswell since most of the reporters are from the BBC.
