Al Jazeera Journalist Resigns over Syria and Bahrain Coverage
by grtv

Ali Hashem: Al Jazeera has become a "media war machine" and is "committing journalistic suicide".

In the middle of February, something called the Syrian Electronic Army—hackers in Syria that support the government—hacked into Al Jazeera's servers and found some emails. Some of them were written by Ali Hashem, who was a Middle East correspondent for the Arab Al Jazeera channel. In those emails he expressed his concern about the way Al Jazeera was covering the conflict in Syria. It later led to his resignation.

Ali Hashem is a television journalist who recently resigned from his post as a war reporter for Al Jazeera. While working for Al Jazeera, he covered the revolution in Libya, Lebanese politics, and tension related to the Syrian uprising on the Syrian Lebanese borders. He also worked for the BBC and led the production team at Manar TV.

Alternative media are now revealing the high level of US propaganda in mainstream media in American-controlled countries. The US government has ALWAYS conducted information war. US imperial administrators see this "soft power" as additional, but comparably important, to US military and economic power. World-citizens can only be skeptical of all "news" they read or hear. Always seek alternative media to appreciate the level of bias in mainstream reports...

Very excellent interview and I have no doubt that Ali Hashem is telling the TRUTH. He responded in a clearly correct and careful, expert manner, naturally rephrasing, say, questions as we can expect to happen; rather than sort of blindly responding in terms that'ld fully correspond with or match the questions Paul Jay posed. So, we're provided with a clearly authentic interview. It's very qualitative, and important.

GR. Repair your spam filter. If it was a car, it'ld be a clunker.
