Freedom of the press means that certain individuals in the media are free to share their views on Israel, Congress, and the Middle East. Do we hear individuals in the media questioning the genuineness of the Arab Spring? Do we hear individuals in American Media criticizing Saudi Arabia for complicity in terrorism while simultaneously dealing with American companies? Apparently now Al Jazeera has an American chapter that it just launched. It has ย twitter account and all. Al Jazeera is operated by and owned by the Qatari government, although it likes to claim otherwise, which in other words means it is an unfree, ideologically imbalanced, interest-driven news station. Of course, American elitists, namely Republicans and other right-wingers thrive on false media. Isn’t that how George W. Bush manufactured consent for his invasion of Iraq? Does the media not play a part in perpetuating crimes against humanity that occur overseas which Americans know nothing about (due to bad media)?
