And thus is why americans are ignorant when it comes to what is happening in the world. They are to busy with their Ipads and Paris Hilton and they don`t even know that on the other side of the world people are commit acts of murder. I am not talking about those US soldiers either but of all the bombings, IDE`s terrorist killing innocent people and so on. I am an american and it is shameful that so many others care more about whether or not paris hiltons poop is brown and don`t care about what is happening anywhere else.

Wow... That`s crazy... Not even a blink. It`s all over the news in Europe, you know, the "video- game-like" war with a reporter killed, and other civilian casualties... And my new favorite porn-star Tiger is touched! What`s that got to do with anything? Is that news?

You asked to cite a part of the bible that condones murder and you defend it by saying killing innocents isn`t technically murder when it`s done for the reclamation of property.

It`s not just murder god`s pushing here, read that part again - "... do not leave alive anything that breathes."

He`s commanding genocide. If that`s not worse than murder, then you have a very skewed sense of morality.

Ok, first people complain about the news always reporting the bad stuff, then when it reports the good stuff, people STILL complain. It`s absurd.

@hknuddv: How so? They seem to be extremely pro-Islamic radical. Find me one article that talks about the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan or Iraq in even a neutral view. Or find me an article on the murdering of innocent civilians by terrorists (without somehow blaming it on the U.S.)

How does this make us dumb at all? You are the one coming on here making bold claims without anything to back them up.

3rd world health care system? /facepalm

Please cite the last time war was fought because of Christianity. What about the last time Christian terrorists blew up buildings in a non-Christian country. Oh wait...
Please cite where it says in The Bible that it is okay to murder.

"@Civas: Except that is not murder. Considering that the land of Israel is the land set aside by God for the Israelites. They are simply taking back what is theirs. This is not murder if the war is being waged for a just cause such as I provided."

It doesn`t work like that. Not everyone believes in God.

"Please cite where it says in The Bible that it is okay to murder."

Deuteronomy 20:16-18 (New International Version)
However, in the cities of the nations the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the LORD your God has commanded you. Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do in worshiping their gods, and you will sin against the LORD your God.

Apparently it`s okay when god tells you to do it.

anyone with half a brain knows that al-jazeera is up there with the bbc when it comes to impartiality, in general.

god some americans just make me so annoyed, you know, the large minority that live up to the stereotypical dumb redneck racist trash image that the rest of the world have of americans.

I like to think that that is not the majority of amercans but hey ho, you guys just don`t help yourselves.

oh btw well done for finally overauling your third world health system.

do you know something else,

RAAAAGGGGEEEEEEEEE.

phew.

o yeah and another thing, i`m a bloody damnsite more terrified of american christian fundametalists and what they would do given the oppurtunity than any muslim terrorist.

I am neither christian, nor muslim, nor atheist, nor agnostic.

Ebbs and flows, the Tao

What I find funny is how these people reporting what they call the murder or civilians by U.S. forces, say nothing of the people murdered by terrorist groups such as contractors. It is fine for the Muslims to murder, it just a horrible crime and a justification for terrorism when U.S. soldiers inadvertently kill civilians.

I think the point is not about terrorism, or whether the reporters are dickheads or not, but in the quality of the news. I`m sure quality news exists somewhere in US but I sure as hell haven`t encountered it yet.

Ah Muslims, trying to justify killing of Americans.

I also find funny how this turned into bashing fox news. However, Fox news has more viewers than all the other news networks... More people trust Fox News than any other network.

The reporters were "palling around with terrorists"... where did I hear that before...
So they should just stay clear of the war zones and report what the high commands tells them to.
Had they been killed by an IED while "palling around" with marines to do their job , they would be heros , since they were doing their job tracking the other side, they had it coming.
Hit the button first , ask later, with the bravery of being out of range

vv Thanks CrakrJak, I was just reading about that. Hard to feel sorry for these `reporters` for hanging out with the enemy, they got what they bargained for eh?
The terrorists put women and children in front of them as human shields, and the US troops are the bad guys? Oh yes, makes perfect sense.

After viewing the video on wikileaks a few times, It was pretty clear the reuters people were paling around with armed insurgents there. It certainly appeared that they were carrying guns and the people around them were carrying guns as well (but wikileaks didn`t bother to point them out in their video). Their cameras had long shoulder slings, Just like rifles and rpgs. There was no way to tell that the van had children in it, Even their `zoomed in` enhanced video of `the kids` shown only two white pixelated blurs.

The video provides a rare, disturbing close-up of modern urban warfare at a time when violence was near its peak in Baghdad and the U.S. death toll was mounting. The soldiers flying attack helicopters had been called in to assist ground troops in the area who were pinned down by small-arms fire and rocket-propelled grenades.

In redacted copies of portions of its earlier inquiry into the July 2007 incident, the military said U.S. troops acted appropriately. Reuters employees were likely "intermixed among the insurgents" and difficult to distinguish because of their equipment, the document states.

When terrorists hide amongst civilians, Use them as `Human shields`, Hide in mosques, etc... Eventually a few civilians will get hurt or killed.

I`ve seen many videos where the anti-terrorist units did not fire and or aborted bombings because they assumed civilians were present in the area.

Al-Jazeera frequently gets their `footage` wrong and have been caught photoshopping their pictures on several occasions. Plus I`ve never seen a story of theirs that was Pro-America, Even when American soldiers put their lives on the line to keep their reporters safe.

"it`s not our fault they`re always killing each other over there. im sure if that was happening in the US then CNN would look like that"

Yeah except there biggest headline was about a leaked military video of the US massacring ~12 people (most of which where unarmed) I don`t think that qualifies as "they`re always killing each other". That would be you killing innocent civilians, not to mention that 2 kids where in the van that they just HAD to shoot up because civilians where collecting the dead and where trying to help an injured reporter from reuters. Kids where only injured which is about the only positive thing that happened, the US military wouldn`t even treat them, they waited for Iraqi police to show up to take them away to a hospital.

But yeah, that`s not news at all.

"CNN is just another part of the American `cage`. You/they don`t know their in a `cage` if they don`t look else where. Since the American electoral system has become a joke, rights and freedoms are what they were last century. and the continued allowance of multi-corporations to walk away with billions of dollars with out accountability. This is just a minor example of American media keep Americans dimmed out and stupefied."

Wow. Wow, wow, wow. I`m sure that about 60% of you idiots haven`t even watched the video, and even if you did you don`t understand what is going on, military Rules of Engagement, or anything beyond naughty language and journalists getting shot to death with the terrorists they were shadowing.

Actually, that was the CNN homepage yesterday. I don`t think the comparison is as invalid as you think. I didn`t check Al Jazeera`s site for comparison, but I`m pretty sure there wouldn`t have been too much emphasis on Tiger Woods. Our news in America has been skewing more and more to entertainment over the passing years, and that`s the fault of the majority of the public buying this type of tripe as opposed to supporting actual news organizations. BBC, Asian Times (www.at.com), Al Jazeera all have decent world news reporting. I`d trust any of them before Fox News or MSNBC.

Oh yeah, BTW, I just did the experience ... cnn.com, no world news whatsoever (except 2 bullet points containing elements where US visit to another undisclosed country might be jeopardized) on the first screen. My screen is 1920x1200, and I could barely see the "World" box title in the bottom. That was my first cnn visit in months!

@vfr4 @Ballthazaq: Yeah, Al Jazeera is simply arabic news, a Qatar-based news joint, like BBC for British, CBC for Canadians, TF1 for France.
They are not really biased, other than being Arabic. Depending on where in the world, they are considered Pro-(Insert the other camp here).
I am happy about my newscasts from my place, I got no real reason to go elsewhere to see other news. I would probably choose otherwise if I`d be living in USA.

What makes you think Al Jazeera is factual?
Al Jazeera displays news from all around the world.
Do you think people in the US care about someone "thinking" that we killed civilians in Iran, or about some stupid thing that the Taliban thinks?
No, I don`t care.
Then again, I don`t really give a sh*t about Tiger Woods or the IPad either.
The news sucks.

I`d say English Jazeera is higher than any American media on the believability scale, unless its about the Middle East, where there is obviously a bias. The best news source, though, is the Deutsche Welle. Not as accessible because its half German, half English, but it is the most politically neutral media organization that I have found. BBC isn`t as good as English Jazeera, but about equal to CNN. Of course, why watch any news media when you can get a better idea of whats going on from the internet.

Yes it is biased. Is it more biased than any other news network? Not noticeably so.

I`d still trust, in order of believability:
BBC, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, Jazeera(English), ABC, NBC, Jazeera(Arabic), FOX.

You can read more about them, including their controversies here.
