    Yes, i have seen Al Jazeera and their anti American bias but as far as mid east policies go, as well as other issues, no one has been more prejudiced against American actions there than the American mainstream media itself. It is certainly no worse that the BBC or many other Western European media. In fact the international media is riddled with anti Americanism, moreso than any other country in the world by far.

    Again as far as foreign policy goes (and again I can't emphasize this enough) the world has an anti-american bias given that it lives with the consequences. This reminds me of the old joke about whether Henry VIII ever asked 'you know, maybe its me?!"

    And the world believes that American actions have had, overall, negative consequences?

    It will be interesting to see what the world thinks when the Americans lose interest in defending democracy. Who will they turn to then?

    Yes, it's not because Hamas, Hez, Assad and the Iranian regime are a state terrorist network that is staffed, trained and funded by Iran - who chants Death to America in parliament every Friday. It's not because of Farfur in Palestine. It's not because terrorists and fundie hairy-backed radical Islamists are raising generations of neanderthals. No, no...

    It's because we're assholes.

    haha


    The same type people who crap all over Christians every chance they get just can't get enough fundie lovin' if it means demonizing the US and apologizing for terrorism.

    I've watched and read it. It sucks. Only the groups I listed above ever pay it heed. Of course, they use the BS articles in debate; it's sad.

    The New York Times reports that Al Jazeera paid $500 million for Current TV, a huge sum by TV industry standards and a big investment at a time when many rival news networks are cutting back on news bureaus and staff.

    But it's peanuts when one remembers that the man behind the network, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, is sitting on one of the world's fastest-growing economies and the world's third largest gas reserves.
    Why has Al Jazeera set its sights on U.S.? - CNN.com

    Gore is in bed with big oil, monarchy and fundies. Why? Money. Here's the buyer:

    What a fat fundie slob. In the states he'd work at a fast food restaurant and Obama-care would fix his teeth.

    I think any 'news organization' that broadcasts a different philosophy to one set of viewers as opposed to another set of viewers isn't rally a news organization at all.

    Very telling that Algore tried his absolute hardest to get this deal done before the new cap gains taxes took effect...While some time ago he like most other libs were mouthfoaming the fair share mantra. I guess that means for the other filthy rich guys....

    On AJ, I don't suspect other than initial curiosity it will get much more viewership than Current did, which was near nothing. What I do find interesting is that Gore turned down Glenn Beck who also wanted to buy the network, not on monetary, or business reasoning, but rather on pure ideological grounds.

    What a fat hypocrite Gore is.

    Ideological leftists like Al Gore will always side with the anti Americans, just as Barrack Obama has done. They may not even realize they think in those terms, but that's who they are.
