Al Jazeera English: "Nothing Less Than a Propaganda Machine For Those Who Hate America"

It is time we face facts when it comes to Qatar's Al Jazeera. Behind the mask of a professional news network, Al Jazeera is a propaganda machine. When you eliminate terms like "terrorist" or "Islamist" from your lexicon, there is not much left of the truth.

This is the outfit to whom that blowhard Al Gore sold his interest in Current TV. (Thanks, Al.) And don't think that all of AJ's commentators, reporters, writers, and columnists are citizens of that duplicitous Gulf state that pretends to fight terror on one hand and funds it with the other. AJ has a fair share of Westerners on their payroll helping to spread the propaganda to Western audiences. They should all hang their heads in shame.

As Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre remarked, "Most things freeborn will do anything for a salary." That's how capitalism works. Ask Miggie -- on a day when he's being candid about his days as the evil boss from central casting.

I'm not real hot on Al Jazeera, but when it started off, it was publicizing facts and events that any given Arab government anywhere else suppressed in its own local press and media. Whether its still doing such good now is debatable.
