Egypt kicks out Al-Jazeera, U.S. embraces news source


Every good organizer knows that control of the media is paramount. The good news is that Egypt has had enough of Al-Jazeera. Before we get the gist of it, let us have a refresher first.

Recall Obama urges Cable Companies to Carry Al-Jazeera? even though there is no question that they support the Muslim Brotherhood? That they are anti-American? Anti-Israel?

Al-Awalaki Praises Al-Jazeera, Wikileaks and Media Jihad not enough yet?

In his latest message to the Muslim world, Al-Awlaki defends the journalists of one such “trustworthy” Muslim source, Al-Jazeera, and praises the Western media source WikiLeaks.

How about our gal Hillary… she really is getting old.

“Like it or hate it, it is really effective,” Clinton said. “In fact, viewership of Al-Jazeera is going up in the United States because it is real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news that is not providing information to us, let alone foreigners.”

Via American Thinker:

Al-Jazeera is filled with anti-American propaganda. It is also awash in anti-Semitism. The material broadcast stokes terror and violence.

In the U.S., Soledad O’Brien and other journalists have flocked to Al Jazeera,  but in the Middle East, the network  for the past week has been facing a  major challenge to its credibility  including mass staff resignations, a  raid of one of its offices, its reporters  kicked out of a news  conference by fellow journalists, and the arrest of some  of its staffers  by Egyptian security forces.

The dramatic developments are the  result of widespread perceptions in Egypt  and in the Arab world that Al  Jazeera has shown a pro-Muslim Brotherhood slant  in its reporting. With  the demise of President Mohammed

According to Gulf News, anchor Karem Mahmoud of Al  Jazeera’s Mubasher Misr  channel announced that the resignations were  motivated by what he called  “biased coverage” of the events leading up  to the ouster of the Muslim  Brotherhood-aligned former President Morsi.

The news anchor revealed that Al  Jazeera management would instruct each  staff member to favor the Muslim  Brotherhood in their broadcasts. According to  Gulf News, Mahmoud said that “there are instructions to us to telecast certain  news”.

    The overthrow of Morsi was one of the surprise I got when I got reconnected to the internet last night. The Arab Spring promoted by Barack and Hillary isn’t working out quite the way they planned, is it? Dumping Al-Jazeera is a good move by the Egyptian military that Morsi was trying to gut. I cn;t sya I am surprised by the support for Al-Jazeera from our President and ex-Secretary of State. Al-Jazeera would or does fit right in with the propaganda machines that pass themselves offf as news media in America today. So, when will Obama announce he is pulling foreign aid from Egypt?

    Egypt does seem, in some ways, to be moving in a better direction. Booting Al-Jazeera is definitely a step in the right direction.

    That Obama and Hillary support Al-Jazeera in the United States definitely speaks volumes, huh?
