Al Jizz, the most trusted news in the whole USA

Al Jazeera America’s Doha Rose

Written by: Diana West

“Unbiased”? The  Muslim Brotherhood Channel? Are they kidding?

How does Qatar do it? How does Vogue let Qatar do it to it? “Playing it straight?” The Qatari Sharia Muslim Brotherhood Revolution? And who is this Lisa “Playing It straight into MB hands” Fletcher? To be sure, she got the glossy treatment in Vogue, swanning amid a Marc Jacobs’ perfume ad (Daisy), breast cancer awareness, and Van Cleef & Arpels.

“Al Jazeera America” is thrilled to bits.

But what price Glossywood?

From an earlier post:

Qatar, after all, is a country Freedom House deems “not free” where, as reported in Freedom House’s the 2012 Freedom of the Press Report, it is against the law for journalists to “criticize the Qatari government, the ruling family or Islam.”

The country’s seven newspapers are all owned by the ruling family or its business associates, while “the state [i.e., the ruling family] owns and operates all broadcast media.” That would include the country’s two TV networks, Al Jazeera and Qatar TV.

As for the Internet, “the government censors political, religious, and pornographic content through the sole, state-owned internet service provider.”

This isn’t “journalism”; it’s Qatari propaganda. Call her Doha Rose.
