Re: Something I found on Al Jazeera
My brother is a diplomat for the U.S. State Department. He watches Al Jazeera at work because often it is the only choice (for example there are no other options in the cafeteria where he has lunch).
He finds Al Jazeera to be reasonably "fair" yet if you watch for any length of time you will catch some outlandish takes on the news. For example they always refer to suicide bombers as martyrs. His personal opinion is that they are still a propanganda tool and that the English version is Al Jazeera "lite" compared to the Arabic version.
One side note; he finished a stint in Baku approximately six months ago. He has spent a lot of time in embassies that regularly receive terrrorist threats but fortunately has not been on the receiving end.
