Im very proud of the role that Al Jazeera has played, Sen. McCain said. When that young man who was humiliated by the police in front of his friends and compatriots and family decided to burn himself to death, that would have been confined in earlier years to a single isolated incident, and it was Al Jazeera, it was Al Jazeera, that spread the story time and time again, so that it permeated the conscience, not only of the Tunisians, but of countries throughout the Arab world. So I congratulate you.
He said he was proud to have been the first U.S. senator to travel to Al Jazeeras headquaters in Doha (not a bad place that youve got going on there) and sit for interviews.
Liberalism is always taking the easy option. The things McCain and other liberals say are the easiest things to say.
Conservatives say the hard truth, regardless of whether it sparkles nicely in lil’ Johnny’s brain.
lil’ Johnny, and those like him, are an existential danger to the continued existence of the USA.
Must make you proud, AZ.
The way I’m seeing it now is that we were screwed five ways into Sunday and never had a chance.
...and yet you know that there will be the usual suspects on here loudly shouting down anyone who dares suggest that conservatives should throw McRomney, McPawlenty, McDaniels, McGingrich, McPerry, or whoever the RINO nominee is under the bus come November.
I am glad McLame LOST is bid for President!
More “reaching across the isle”, John?
McCain is who he is. The lesson to us as conservatives is this: it is *not* better to have a RINO in power than a progressive; it’s not better to be shot in the back by a supposed friend than face an open enemy on the field of battle.
I agree. If McCain would have won the election, conservatives would be pulling their hair out by now.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. — Marcus Tullius Cicero
Makes my heart heavy to think McCain has such deep family roots in Mississippi (and how they must react to his left coast ideas).
We must remind her to see the humor too.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Wait, this us serious?
It’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference between articles in the Onion and the news. This one, sadly, was real.
Hey, Al Jazeera isn’t that bad.
It has provided coverage otherwise unavailable - the first cell-phone videos from Syria, in particular, were miles ahead of other TV services.
BBC World is also decent.
US networks are pretty much unwatchable, unless one is on a ritalin drip...
Al Jazeera English I will watch occasionally, I will even watch Russia Today. Yes they are somewhat biased, what broadcaster isn’t.
But their quality of presentation far exceeds any of our so-called news channels.
Especially when Ghida is on.
