Bad News - Literally

Due to immense popularity, AlJazeera (aka "crapazeera") has announced that it will launch an English-language channel at the start of 2006 (I shall not be linking to this farce of a "news site").

"British national Nigel Parsons will head operations at the company's Doha headquarters, while Trish Carter, formerly of New Zealand television, will head a new Asia desk in Kuala Lumpur.

Sue Philips, formerly employed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp, will take charge of European coverage in London, while Will Stebbins, formerly with Associated Press Television News, will head a North American desk in Washington.

Aljazeera has undertaken major expansion in recent months, launching a new channel last month dedicated exclusively to covering live events without presenters or commentary.

Aljazeera also has a sports channel and plans a children's channel soon."

What bothers me is 1) the fact that they are popular enough in the Western world to be able to to this, and 2) the fact that this will greatly contribute to what Israel certainly does not need: spreading more lies.
