    Do Arab/Muslim Americans face stereotyping and bigotry or do they not? What is unfair or unbalanced about reporting something ignored by the mainstream US media?

    No, they just report from the point of view of the Arab world. You want a Anti-American news network, go check out Russia Today.

    I think its just an alternative news source coming outside of the dominant corporate ran American news...
    Just another view..... Which doesnt do anyone harm. Got to have all sides of the spectrum and stories..

    Americans' views on Al Jazeera have been impacted by the way they see the Middle East as a whole. i wonder if the recent coverage of the uprising in Egypt changed anyones views on Al Jazeera? we saw hundreds of thousands of young people demonstrating in Tahrir Square. they were not demonstrating against the United States, they were not demonstrating against Israel and they were not demonstrating against the West.

    they were demonstrating for something a lot of us take for granted. that is democracy. they are a lot more like us than some people give them credit for.

    thank you to Al Jazeera for getting that message out.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    CNNs coverage of the protests in the middle east was much better.

    Yep. CNN loves their Web 2.0 and touchy screens.

    My dad actually loves watching that channel. I've watched it, it isn't too bad.

    Don't watch/read Al Jazeera but heck, if it's not in Obama's back pocket that's more than I can say for our media.
