al-Zarqawi Screams of Media Bias

Lefty Blogosphere Mobilized to 'Out' al-Jazeera Journalists

"After we posted a statement (claiming responsibility) ... we found that Al-Jazeera tried to alter the facts and attributed to us (something) we didn't say," said the statement that appeared on an Internet site used as a clearing house for extremist Islamic material.

"We didn't say in our statement that we targeted the mosque, but that we targeted the infidel guards, and we hit them directly."

It also accused the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera of falsifying the report in a bid to "flatter the Americans" and interim Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's government.

Josh Marshall promised swift retribution for what he termed "an obvious attempt by the BushChimpHitler administration to alter the nature of reality-based news coverage in the Middle East."

Daily Kos has already uncovered prominent links between Middle Eastern smut factories and the owners of the Qatar-based pan-Arab news agency. It is also alleged press passes were issued to nearly all al-Jazeera 'journalists' without first getting direct approval from DNC chair Howard Dean. "Isn't is curious how these al-Jazeera types always seem to cover only news in the Middle East? And never anywhere like, say, Crawford, Texas? Do you think they're using their real names, if you can spell them, and did they ever touch men 'down there?'"
