Strange. I tried it a few days (maybe 2) ago and it worked just fine. I didn’t make any mention of it because I thought it was known to be up at the time. Tried it just now and it didn’t work for me.
Ok, just tried again and it half way came up. Maybe it’s under a DoS attack or something.
The world needs more news stations like Al-Jeezera, well without most of the propoganda, but less de-sanitized news like the slop we get here in N.America. The two major news companies here in Canada are filing a petition to the gov’t regulation board to get the Al-Jeezera feed.
War is ugly and the people around the world should be allowed to see war is all its g(l)ory. If it means seeing a US/UK Marine executed while begging for his life or Iraqi civilians killed by coalition forces, it shouldn’t be screened out.
yo, this is more than strange. as the conspiracy theorist i am, it reeks of sabotage.
it reeks of the knowledge that if we, the english-speaking public, gets another view of the war, then we might not support it so blindly as we have (or they have, i should say - i haven’t supported this war). maybe the american public isn’t blind, it just has media cataracts.
after all, didn’t cnn get kicked out of baghdad because they weren’t reporting in the way the war planners liked?
Bet you really liked the Daniel Pearl video, eh?
If you mean Nic Robertson. He got kicked out of Baghdad by Baghdad. If you mean Peter Arnett (Nat Geog and errr… was it Fox or NBC?), the cable networks originally stood by him. But then they caved, probably to pressure from advertisers.
And look what has happened. al Jazeera is now withdrawing its journalist from Iraq following an order from Iraqi officials. When both Iraq and the US are against you then you know your either doing something terribly wrong or absolutely right (I suspect the latter).
