    On US News though, Al Jazeera is actually one of the least biased networks.

    Truth.

    I have always wondered why Al Jazeera is allowed to operate and has not been blown up since they are the go to new source to post the videos when the terrorists capture some American.

    Why is Al Gore not tried for dealing with terrorists?

    Despite all the uninformed hate of the network, Al Jazera in the US is one of the VERY few quality sources of mainstream television journalism.

    Sort of the opposite of FOX and MSNBC.

    People confuse "Al Jazerra" with "Iraqi Bob" or whoever the Iraqi Intelligence Minster was that kept telling everyone that the Iraqis were defeating the US.

    When in the M.E., I'm always amazed by the News coverage there.
    They have footage of things you would never see here and most of it is pretty anti U.S.
    It seems to be a mix of violence and the unedited Celebrity footage that would make soccer Mom's cringe, Also our Politicans with their feet planted firmly in their mouths.
    It's a pretty disturbing look at our culture.

    comments in this thread lead me to watch for a while to determine AJ's veracity.

    I read where they are left-leaning and anti-America. My cable provider, Brighthouse, stated they will not carry it. Bet Comcast will. I think the only other vehicles are Dish and Direct TV.

    Actually, there was a fraud campaign against them by the major news networks here in the US- you may have even heard it in some neocon circles- that they "routinely" air beheadings on their network.

    The truth is that they have never aired a beheading. To further perpetuate the lie among higher thinking folks, the neocons said that it could only be seen on their Middle East broadcasts. The facts remain the same though- they have never aired a beheading on any of their networks.

    Donald Rumsfeld was even repeating this lie (among his many others).

    Because of the quality of their reporting and the ability to have people on the ground, reporting from everywhere on planet Earth, they pose a serious threat to American network news.

    The politicians don't want the average American to receive their news from a global perspective, but rather to subscribe to the partisan brain infection, tune into their appropriate network, and shut down their brain activity.
