Really, YOU need Al-Jazeera. Unfortunate, however, that your limited understanding and narrow, arrogant world-view prevent you from enlightening yourself, or from seeking news (and not hate-fueled, nonsensical, tea-party rhetoric).

Unlike Fox, Al-Jazeera has standards. And they don’t have an “anti-American bias.” They’re just not afraid to tell you when your government makes mistakes (which is often). Because they do not stroke your ego or stoke your fear (like Hannity and his minions), you classify it as propaganda?

Maybe you ought to redefine news to “the obvious and erroneous affirmation of my American misconceptions.”

If you’d prefer a more traditional definition of “news” you can tune into Al-Jazeera and get some insight.

You need to overcome your own NewsCorp-inspired slant / propaganda. Fox doesn’t get much of an audience outside of the U.S. – people are far too intelligent.

We have very few real reporters any more. our beds are burning and the news networks are reporting on silly people and the stupid things they do. our news networks also seem to believe that we are all obsessed with sports. to see any world news, it is necessary to watch BBC or some other news agency. Watch Al-Jazeera English for a while before concluding that it is for propaganda. it is the only place I have found out about unrest and demonstrations in other countries. I was hoping Ted Turner would buy back CNN and fix it but that does not seem to be happening.

I doubt they would get much of an audience here in America to make it worthwhile.
