How to deprogram dumbfuk rednecks who have not read or watched much other than The Bible and Fox News.

I'm catching a really negative vibe from you Collett. . . . . .

Don't like negative stereotypes when they hit close to home Itchhh? Neither do I.

Are you insinuating something . . . dumbfuk?

While I do not watch Al Jazeera, they have a reputation for being more accurate and less biased than either Fox or MSNBC.

That is not what I meant Itchhh.  I was referring to your deep religious convictions.  Are I not right that you do not like it when Christians are all grouped together and judged by those bad apples?

I have never once defamed you Collett. . . not once. I don't agree with Islam and what it stands for but you'll never find a post where I attacked people for their Islamic beliefs.

Have either of those received Colombia Universities top Journalism Award or these awards ?

I was not aware of this. Thanks. That said, do you have any doubts about who really has more influence in media - The Arabs/Muslims or the Jews (see also)? And do you deny the pervasive influence of AIPAC on US foreign policy and aid? (see Source 1 , Source 2 Source 3 and the .pdf in this link for a detailed article).

I for one welcome a counter balance to the above and the likes of Fox News using fear and content selection that promotes prejudice against Arabs and Muslims in order to justify our foreign policy and the invading their countries and trying to get the resources on the cheap.

Off topic. Lighten up , have you no sense of humor at least one time.

The problem with jokes is that they tend to desensitize people, and if heard enough they become subconsciously part of our belief system - like a habit if you will.  I have seen it in my life w/r/t gays and African Americans.

Since the post you are replying to is about the double standard between how the American public perceives the influence of Muslim/Arab media vs Jewish/Israel influences, how do you think this thread would have gone over if it was a joke about The Jews in media?

Al Jazeerra is certainly making enemies from people who've never seen it...

Anyone is free to "debunk" Al Jezeera. But they can't. They're too busy providing sterotypes to actually see a story that they THINK is not true, or biased.

When I attack a Fox program, at least I've seen it. Apparently all that's necessary here is to accuse them of being "Al Qaeda Light" and it's case closed...

Jimbo,

Al Jazeera are a good news station, etc...however, they certainly DO have an Arab bias when it comes to anything Israeli-Palestinian related.

Please don't think otherwise....

Ok. How many Jews does it take too screw in a lightbulb. Eight, one to hold the bulb and seven to spin the ladder around.

At a time when Al Jezzerra is being compared to Al Qaeda, I see nothing funny about joining the chorus of "Hate."

I HAVE made jokes at the expense of Al Qaeda and the Taliban. But for a joke to be "funny," it has to have a grain of truth behind it. Where is this grain of truth is saying they will have a TV program called:

"How I stoned your Mother?"

Would it be a laughing matter if I made a joke about the Republican Platform, where I titled on of their planks, "How to use the Bible to teach a woman to enjoy being raped?"

And oddly enough, although I would never make such a joke, there's MORE truth in that, then in the above.

This is not a question of being PC. This is a question of trying to destroy a media outlet by a chorus of slander.

Women are frequently stoned in the Arab world often for alleged infidelity. That is an irrefutable fact.   Watch "the stoning of soroya m." to get an idea of what goes on there.  Amnesty internal is a good place to learn more about it.   Al Jazzerra is an Arab media network. So yes there is a "grain (or a rock) of truth"

Would it be a laughing matter if I made a joke about the Republican Platform, where I titled on of their planks, "How to use the Bible to teach a woman to enjoy being raped?"

There is no zero truth in the above statement.

And oddly enough, although I would never make such a joke, there's MORE truth in that, then in the above.

The is zero truth in your statement about "using the bible to teach woman to enjoy being raped".

This is not a question of being PC. This is a question of trying to destroy a media outlet by a chorus of slander.

It is absolutely a question about being PC as I and this post have zero power destroy a media outlet.

And Repblicans call the result of rape a gift from God. What's your point? Honor killings are common throughout Christian Latin America, does that mean that civilized Chrisitans back them?

What does stoning have to do with a media company like Al Jezeera?

Nothing at all. It's just a ghastly sterotype. It NOT Funny, anymore than saying Republicans advocate rape is funny.

Would it be a laughing matter if I made a joke about the Republican Platform, where I titled on of their planks, "How to use the Bible to teach a woman to enjoy being raped?"

All of us collectively speak to other people. The totality of that effort effects public consiousness. No one can escape their responsibility, no matter how small that responsibility is.
