    I also bet that these "some" have never seen Al Jazerra in English...
    .
    Indeed. The first thing i saw on Al Jazerra english was an interview with an iraqi kurdish women who said that golden stautes of George Bush and Tony Blar should be erected in the center of Baghdad. But it seams what the channel actually broadcasts will get alot less attention then the fact that it has an "Al" in its name.

    Re: Al Jazeera's Presence on PBS Alarms Some

    Oh, I made a grave mistake earlier... I said that Al Jazeera was the Fox counterpart in the Middle East. That was a complete and utter error. It is actually much better than Fox because its staff and journalists are compromised of members of the international community. For instance, many former BBC journalists work there. It is an honest news network that portrays news in the Middle East.

    The reason why it got a bad wrap in the West was because it aired the Al Qaeda tapes, but that does not make Al Jazeera an accessory to terrorism, simply a functional journalist organization. We in the West would likely not have had the opportunity to see those tapes had the Western media not recorded the Al Jazeera broadcastings and then translated them to the public.

    Hardly sensational. It's the straightest, most boring news show around.

    That's it's appeal.

    If Fox has a couple of honest reporters who aren't bogged down by the network, then I wouldn't know who they are because I gave up tuning into that crap a long time ago. It's tabloid media, nothing more.

    That is all.

    You have no idea what you are talking about. What conspiracy theories???

    And to underscore your casual regard for truth and accuracy, here's the correct spelling of their names:

    1. The O'Reilly Factor: 3,438,000 total viewers
    2. Hannity: 2,579,000 total viewers
    3. Glenn Beck: 2,271,000 total viewers

    That is all from you. But, that is not all to this matter. You just are clueless and as such you should either qualify your (original) comments or say nothing unless you wish to be called on it.

    I don't speak Arabic, so I can't comment on the Arabic channel, but Al Jazeera in English has some very good programs hosted by professional, Western trained journalists. The quality is right up there with CNN International and the BBC.

    Re: Al Jazeera's Presence on PBS Alarms Some

    I wonder if the thought of Al Jazeera on PBS makes Glenn Beck cry for America?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
