I was against the whole Al Jazeera this when it first started. Now it’s the only news network that I watch.

You crazy Dutch!



Very well written article. The author is 100% spot on, which is why he'll be heralded a kook.

Funny how Americans, who live in a country that is supposed to be a "beacon of freedom," have to turn to sources like Al Jazeera for accurate, balanced news.

Sadly AlJezerra is one of the least spun news sources at the moment.

But the biggest, most violently irresponsible gun owner in the country isn’t some left-wing caricature redneck or a deranged teen plotting a massacre from his basement. It’s the state.

People here trip over themselves to shit on AJ without ever stopping to actually check it out. It is a very good source of news. I wouldn't make it a sole source, but one of many.

Great article.

I would wage a nice lunch that the author is libertarian, left leaning. If that is true then they as a group are our biggest political allies.

The article is well written, properly brief and interestingly confrontational to say the least.

While gun violence has markedly declined following heightened crime in the ’90s, incarceration rates haven’t returned to earth, nearly quintupling since the early ’70s, making Americans the most imprisoned people in the world.

Honestly, I hate quotes like that. It's like people decrying America's "culture of violence." While true, insofar as they go, they ultimately miss (consciously evade?) the point.

So please share with us, what is the point? Something that is not true?

Yes. FOX used to be decent, but they've tipped to the left, and aren't just almost as bad as CNN, they're like lowbrow CNN, written for dumb people who like overdone banner graphics and 'splosions.

Bloomberg has never had a problem with standing armies; in 2011 he even bragged to an audience at MIT, “I have my own army in the NYPD, which is the seventh biggest army in the world.” The NYPD is the largest, best-equipped municipal police force in the country, and its influence extends far beyond American territorial borders. It operates in 11 foreign cities and runs its own foreign policy and intelligence network. Bloomberg personally boasted that the NYPD has the capacity to shoot down passenger planes. It’s clear from his record that it’s not the “gun” part of “gun control” Bloomberg is interested in.

That is hardly of any comfort. I for one fail to see why so many folks think they need to watch any of the lamestream propaganda driven media, there is a thing called the internet that happens to be a wonderful tool for getting unfilitered news in the proper context directly from the source or sources near to the events.

It's not just for complaining about the lamestream media.

Who needs them.
