Al Jazeera Joins Forces With Media Matters and ThinkProgress

Media Matters, the Soros-funded Obama administration propaganda arm, claims that its prime mission is to correct “conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.” Presumably as part of its self-righteous campaign against conservative misinformation, Media Matters decided to team up with the anti-Semitic, anti-American news outlet Al Jazeera, a corrupt media outfit owned and financed by an authoritarian Arab regime that forbids freedom of the press in its own country. Then again, intellectual honesty and truly unbiased journalistic professionalism were never part of Media Matters’ mission statement.

Al Jazeera has descended to such low depths that a critic from the Arab media had this to say about it:

Al-Jazeera’s problem is not its political stance. It is entitled to that. Its problem is that it has dealt a blow to every genuine attempt to build strong and reasonably independent Arab media. The channel will allow no discussion of what has become of it, and has taken us back to the days of the ‘no voice rises above the sound of the battle’ media. It casts aspersions on the motives of anyone one who criticizes it, defends fatal mistakes with feigned naivete, and at the same time refuses to concede that its ‘logical justification’ for what is happening today is: “we are implementing the policy of our funder, period.”

Media Matters was founded with the help of another Soros-sponsored enterprise, the Center for American Progress, the radical brain of the Democratic Party. Media Matters itself couldn’t care less about upholding professional standards in journalism. Its affinity with Al Jazeera has nothing to do with a shared commitment to journalistic integrity. Rather, it shares a common enemy with Al Jazeera: Fox News.

Some of Al Jazeera’s most severe critics in the U.S. media just happen to be Fox News commentators such as Bill O’Reilly, who reports periodically on its blatantly biased anti-American, anti-Israel coverage. Media Matters’ founder and head honcho, David Brock, hates Fox News so much for its rejection of left-wing orthodoxy that he decided to use Media Matters’ resources to launch what he called an all-out campaign of “guerrilla warfare and sabotage” aimed at the Fox News Channel. Thus, it is no wonder that the two organizations, Media Matters and Al Jazeera, have formed a mutual admiration society. After all, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Media Matters Action Network senior foreign policy fellow MJ Rosenberg has a profile on Al Jazeera’s website, where his articles attacking Israel and the United States regularly appear. As reported by the Daily Caller, Rosenberg represented Media Matters at the first Al Jazeera “Unplugged” forum on social media in Doha, Qatar in May 2010. At the forum, he praised Al Jazeera as a “mainstream network” and “factual” while attacking Fox News as a “very, very dangerous force in the United States.” For good measure, Rosenberg also charged that Al Jazeera “was bombed by orders of the United States government.”

    Leftist Americans are committing acts of treason so egregious that there is only one punishment that is fitting. This Islamo-Marxist alliance is evil incarnate and has only one purpose: destroy America, and anyone who opposes their ruthless goal of totalitarian power. The connection to the Whitehouse and Obama is now irrefutable and umistakable.

    Baraka Obama makes Benedict Arnold look like a patriot.

    You're known by the company you keep, and this is just additional confirmation for me.

    This article points out only a small portion of the conceted efforts of the Communists who are bend on destroying the freedoms put in place by the founders of this nation. Without the bill of rights, we will no longer be able to sustain freedom.

    You labeled Al Jazeera as a corrupt media organization, implying that all the other media organizations are not corrupt. That's distorted. Also, when the US doesn't like what Al Jazeera says, we just bomb their offices, so what's the big deal? You also said that the Koch brothers are unfairly characterized. They are?

      NBC might have a bias to big government due to political grafting.
      Fox News might blur the line between analysis and commentary.

      al-Jazeera fronts for child torture-murdering institutional rapists and drug cartel terrorists using religion to try to start an international war.

      • maturin20

        ABCBSMSNBC all routinely feed us blowback and keep us on an unquestioning permanent war footing of national bankruptcy. All of them meddle in the electoral process and rig our elections. All of them front for big oil and big automotive and love the devaluation of the dollar, love high gas prices, love unreasonable search and seizure. They are no better than Al Jazeera, and what is worse, they are headquartered here.

    All of this means more of what is known as Islamic Cultural Terrorism,that is what Atheist Pat Condell of the UK has talked about in a video of his:

    "Video by Famous Atheist Pat Condell on “Islamic Cultural Terrorism” and a History of Other Famous Atheists"

    AND ALSO

    "Caliph Al-Hakim of Muslim Spain,who created a Library of 400,000 Books,was Not a Muslim since he was an Openly Practicing Homosexual"

    Muslims often say:"Look at Muslim Spain and how Muslims created the biggest library in Europe"

    "Abdel-Samad,the Most Famous Muslim in Germany wrote a Book saying Islam and the Islamic World will Collapse"

    The article has a video interview of Abdel Samad

    The author neglected to state, when refering to Mrs. Clinton's praise of al Jazeera news, that "It's always on all of the State Department's television sets". NBC/MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell also praised al Jazeera, as a great source for news of the Middle East. One can easily understand Andrea, and her fellow Kool-Aid dispensers/drinkers from MSNBC, praising al Jazeera, as it fits their agenda very nicely. But, I'm surprised at Mrs. Clinton's inability to discern actual news from blatant propaganda.

    It sounds like the greater enemy of the world is not Iran but Fox News. They complain that the U.S. can't sit down and negotiate with Iran but then again, they can't sit down with Fox News! Iran has the potential to start WW III, which would be a war fought with nukes, and yet Fox is a greater threat?

    If David brock & George Soros don't like it in America, which made it possible for them to acccumulate riches, then why don't they move to a more friendler place to gays & Jews, like Iran, for example. Can't go to Malaysia though; no Jews & gays allowed, sorry, it's against the koran.

    I watch aL Jazeera. Just as I still study the communists I once was allowed to extirpate. Jazeera does a more professional and informative job that FOX, CNN or MSNBC. Hands down. Sometimes the facts, configured skillfully against your preconceptions and interests, HURTS. Sometimes the facts hurt, period. The answer is not found in silence or the self interested blithering of western propaganda. The answer is to know your enemy, know yourself and to have the confidence the difference matters. Even when it is very uncomfortable. Grow up, children.

  • Ghostwriter

    Well,I don't get Al-Jazeera so I can't comment on it. I have heard that it is anti-semitic,anti-American,and anti-Israel. But again,I haven't watched so I don't know for sure.

    The partnership is just a mere formality. All three have been on the same Islamofascist, anti-American page for some time.
