Why watch Al Jazeera when one can get the same propaganda on MSNBC?

Yeah, those radical Islamists are all good guys.
Will Al Jazeera hire Keith Olberdork?
Al Jazeera English is basically made up from ex BBC guys. In fact the network was started after BBC closed its middle east Arabic network down around the time of the first gulf war. Al Jazerra english employed most of those correspondents and presenters. Right now they have more reporters in all countries than any other network in the world.
The fact that the US military didn't like them because they had reporters filing from these surgical strike sites during the gulf war that all western media was banned from or had no way of getting to.
This of course didn't look good when compared to the video game like images the pentagon released of smart bombs destroying targets full of bad guys. The pentagon controlled the media during the middle east conflicts because it had learn't a hard lesson from Vietnam and the news media's coverage of that. The fact that Bin Laden used them to file media releases too, was he knew it would not be doctored or trashed.
So as a news service it gives a view of stories all around the world not filtered or show bias such as the US networks do.
So it has a different style altogether, for instance say a horrific crime has been commited like the Indian rape case or the Ohio rape case for that matter. It will just report the story and not have a panel discussing how they will execute those charged with the crime. It's a totally different mindset. It's just news without political comment, panel discussions will be on issues of the day and possible outcomes. It works on BBC principles, which is rated as one of the best news services in the world. You can only benefit from that, not these BS opinions like Limbaugh & co. You may not like all the stories but its a true picture of the world as it is including both sides of the argument in the middle east.

That't helpful and interesting. I'm not sure what is behind the high number of people working for minimum wage & uninsured. Maybe illegals?

They do have a very low unemployment rate where my blue state & California is sky high.

What you just said is like a person say I must make an income because I like to spen a certain amount. Well guess what? Most normal people limit their spending based on income, not the other way around.

Democrats just don't get it. Greece didn't either and look where their socialist logic got them!

Republicans and Democrats aren't helping, yet you on the left go after the Tea Party, who are the only ones that get it.

If the NRA gave a sh*t, they would support efforts to limit the assault type rifles & support efforts to get guns out of the hands of gang members.
The NRA's response to Newtown was beyond pathetic.
Davey, Your first two statements take the cake, for absolute stupidity. Elgore's house uses 12 times... not maybe..2 times the average electricity draw ...BUT...he buys from 'green sources' which makes it all well with the 'greenies', and other environmental junkies?? Hot Damn...

Thanks for stating the obvious!

The simple facts are that the Bush team KNEW they were going to start a war...an expesive war in iraq, and they cut taxes anyhow!

Greece is a mess because after they got into debt trouble they CUT SPEnding anD DEsTROYED ThEIR economy. Clearly you never went to college or you wouldnt repeat such simplistic talking points. take an economics class1

The tea party are clueless. they are whining about the lowest taxes in more than half a century. THe tea party is a farce anyhow. they are completely PAC funded, when they call themselves grassroots. its a joke!

The TP rallies consisted of fat ladies with boy haircuts with their doughboy husbands in tow, the gatherings wreaked of low IQ where the speakers often had to resort to God, guts or guns to get a rise from the mouthbreathing crowd. The few TP freaks I knew grow very quiet when reminded that DaBammy smacked the shtt out of Mitt.

Mercenaries for the United States Military pays good also France so if I saddle up Robert E. Lee's horse Traveller I will work for highest paying unit. No hard feelings but United States Military allows drinking at Officers club if off-duty. It's hard to turn your back on your country. Safer World 2013.

Well when you tune into a news network only telling you what you want to hear everyday, is that real news or propaganda. That's the question you should be asking yourself. Carol is a classic example of that, actively seeks out stories or mostly comments that re-enforce her point of view rather than having an open mind. Fox news was designed by Murdoch to target exactly that audience which had been ignored for the most part because it was a small voice of minorities the other networks did not give credence too. However that has consequences and Tea party was one of them which may have appeared anyway after an election of the first black president. However Fox gave them oxygen, way more than they deserved which led to the loser congress you have today. Totally functionless leaving the bulk of the population without any real government.

I agree with you on this, it should be on the table. Originally, it should have been paid for with revenue from tax increases or closing loopholes or cuts in other programs. It shouldn't have been combined with tax CUTS.
