Sec. of State Hillary Clinton: Al Jazeera is 'Real News', U.S. Losing 'Information War'
March 02, 2011 5:36 PM
ABC News' Kirit Radia reports:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear today that she is worried the United States is losing what she calls the information war abroad.
China and Russia, she says, have started English-language networks that push their message overseas and even the Taliban controls the airwaves in Afghanistan.
And in the Arab world? Al Jazeera is king, and Clinton says she can see why.
Al Jazeera has been the leader in that are literally changing peoples minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective, she said.
In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because its real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like youre getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners, she added.
Clinton said that the US has dropped the ball since the Cold War, when VOA and others US broadcasts were influential.
We have not really kept up with the times, Clinton argued.

>Al Jazeera has been the leader in that are literally changing peoples minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective, she said.<
She’s right, it’s effective. But everytime we send in white woman reporters into Mooslum areas, they get raped.
Tell Obama to shut down the free Internet then so we have to rely even more on the dinosaurs of information for crying out loud!
That way we can win again, I know we can do it.
It's nothing that a bit more of regulation and taxation can't overcome.
After all, our freedom and the first amendment are at stake.
She is a steamin' pile of socialist excrement.
What we have here in the USA is a "Progressive-run" State-Run-Media pushing the socialist propoganda to further The Agneda, and it's failing.....unlike the Afghans.
So.....is your Socialist Workers' Union(s) coupled with the State-Run-Media propoganda machine STILL unable to fool those with more than two active braincells in what's left of America, you dumbass?
Based on what I read, I respect what she said. It’s true - our news outlets are total crap.
She should take that to her boss.
For the past two years the Obama Administration has been very active in not getting involved.
That's the key phrase. Interpretation: Al Jazeera puts out great propaganda. The rest is easy to figure out from there.
Gee Hillery! Maybe if people around the world respected
and feared us enough our reporters wouldn’t be having
their heads cut off and be beaten and sexually abused...
Ha ha ha ha...what a %#$@% idiot.
They not going say jack reason is it is the truth I been watching that network on KCET Los Angeles way better than MSNBC CNN and other
KCET Los Angeles been having block of news from AL Jazzeea, BBC world news, Israel News, and NHK Japan newsline
It kick a***
That's disingenuous. You know why, Mrs. Clinton: the only message we could possibly broadcast is that Western Civilization is superior. But you and your fellow travelers refuse to broadcast that message even to our children here in the U.S. What you call multiculturalism is not multiculturalism at all: it is West-bashing and praise for all cultures but Western ones.
The only message that matters is not acceptable to you, Mrs. Clinton..
P.S. The same thing is happening in Europe. When the Soviet Union was alive and well, BBC used to bring the light of knowledge behind the Iron Curtain. Now it is more Leftist than Gorbachev.
“Shes right, its effective. But everytime we send in white woman reporters into Mooslum areas, they get raped.”
That piano legged skank never would have to worry about that she is “Protected by Nature”.
She is correct b/c the media almost exclusively broadcasts democrat party marxist lies. And folks from other parts of the world know it.
She is saying that the State Department is failing at promoting the interests of the United States and that she is not doing her job.
I hate to agree with her on anything but in this instance I must say she is correct.
She just figured out what the rest of the world already knows.
We have the brightest and best out there folks, hope we survive.
Stay Free and Proud America. . .
Say what you will, Al Jazeera has given more objective reports on the Middle East than any American news source. The tabloid press won’t out the resources necessary into real news. Ah well at least we know about Charlie and Lynsey.
Compared to the lame stream media which are the public relations and entertainment arm of the Democratic Party and the Obama administration- I could see why Al Jazeera would be regarded as news, let alone “real” news.
