Giorgio, I can\'t get anything with that link, but I did find the following:
LONDON (Reuters) - Banned on Wall Street and wiped off the Internet, Arab news channel al-Jazeera defended its controversial coverage of the Iraq war on Wednesday and demanded the United States come to its aid in the name of a free press.
I\'m glad that there is still a news company brave enough to broadcast some of the more horrific realities of war. It seems that we are now blaming the messenger.
Western news channels are trying to sanitize this war. Vietnam was curtailed, at least in part, because we saw the horrors.
Most Western news channels seem little more than propoganda machines with more attention paid to special effects than actual reporting - outside of the UK\'s channel 4, I haven\'t seen any analysis that isn\'t just about our weapons, our strategies, and how we\'re kicking \'their\' arses.
The BBC is a disgrace. It should be ashamed to call itself a news channel. Reporters are losing their lives out there (US friendly fire) to stand in the dark and broadcast little more then Western platitudes.
And before people start screaming at me about how me and Saddam are pals and often chat over a few roast baby sandwiches, I believe the demise of a free press in the West is very, very sad and portends more bad things to come.
(And yes, I am aware that the Western press is supposedly \'technically\' free - doesn\'t look free to me.)
