Al Jazerra Canada

Reader comment on item: Al-Jazeera in Al-Canada?

Submitted by Howard (Canada), May 11, 2010 at 11:29

Al Jazeera Canada has been on the air for a few days. The scope of its international news coverage

redresses the mainstream media's relative neglect of events in the Muslim world. However, some of the human interest programs that Al Jazeera has broadcast are troubling. One program was devoted to Palestinian accusations of Israeli land theft; another examined the attitudes of Israeli Druze to conscription. Both programs lacked objective historical contexts and opposing viewpoints. Their common anti-Zionist message was loud and clear.

Al Jazeera seems to take its CRTC license as permission to engage in insidious and hateful propaganda.

The CRTC should not hesitate revoking it should this network's early days prove indicative of what is to come.
