After reading up a bit more on Al-Jazeera, I am convinced that previous link is bullhockey. I have no doubt that many, many governments have tried to sway Al-Jazeera one way or another, but they seem pretty steadfast in their neverending mission to piss EVERYONE off. I doubt they are leaning one way or another on such things. They may be a bit sensationalistic at times, but I think that is a valid criticism of any news network. They at least remain relatively uncensored, it would seem.
