AlJazeera

I caught the launch of the AlJazeera english speaking news network last night. I was very impressed with their impartiality. I really expected more of a mid-eastern slant, or at least a Muslim slant. It's odd watching news that's not Anglo-centric. Once, the US ruled international news coverage. We had the technology, we had the best reporters, and, most importantly, we were the most impartial and objective. AlJazeera showed me, last night, that they have moved close to the font, if not ahead of us already. While our news focuses on partisan political news, slanting either to the left or right of the American political spectrum, AlJazeera has a diverse, strong news program that caters to no one. They have reporters that are accepted by friend and foe. Likewise, their reporters are also derided by friend and foe as well.
I need to qualify my review here, though. I only watched for a few minutes, due to connection speed, and bandwidth issues. As soon as my connection was lost, there may have been a terrorist on there proclaiming 'Death to America!' like the MadTV skit. From what I saw it was interesting and impartial, though.

Terrorist School Teacher Arrested, as reported first onCNN

NEW YORK- A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy
International Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a set square, a slide rule and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez said he believes the man is member of the notorious Al-gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of mathinstruction.

"Al-gebra is a problem for us," Gonzalez said. "They desire solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute value. They use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God
had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have
given us more fingers and toes."

Here we go...

Gah... just when I'm trying to say something positive, here come the negative proselitizers. I'm gonna let your post stay, but grow up, Ahmedinajad. Your poo isn't any less stinky than the other religious poo.

I just don't get it...

You have to realize that your comment sounds like a psycho whack-job wrote it. All the links at the end... that's just weird, dude. You are clearly an obsessed person, and probably not very stable. ...The kind that could be talked into killing yourself and others in the name of religion.

Here I was, trying to be objective, looking at something from all sides with clear, unsubjective eyes, and you come in and totally blow it for your side.

Good greif.
