Just saw on RT TV, a corresponadent for RT stating, Al Jazeera falsified stories duing the Libya comflict to sway public opinion. I know that Al Jazeera was heavily influenced by MI6 in the UK and supplied many stories to the BBC.

Here is the online article:
Key staff from Al Jazeera’s Beirut Bureau have resigned citing “bias” in the channel’s stance on the conflict in Syria.

Bureau Managing Director Hassan Shaaban reportedly quit last week, after his correspondent and producer had walked out in protest.

A source told the Lebanese paper Al Akhbar that Al Jazeera’s Beirut correspondent Ali Hashem had quit over the channel’s stance on covering events in Syria.

"… his position [which] changed after the station refused to show photos he had taken of armed fighters clashing with the Syrian Army in Wadi Khaled. Instead [Al Jazeera] lambasted him as a shabeeh [implying a regime loyalist],” a source told Lebanese press.

Ali Hashem was also infuriated by Al Jazeera’s refusal to cover a crackdown by the King of Bahrain while twisting its Syria angle. “[In Bahrain], we were seeing pictures of a people being butchered by the 'Gulf's oppression machine', and for Al Jazeera, silence was the name of the game,” he said.
The Beirut bureau’s producer also quit claiming Al Jazeera had totally ignored Syria’s constitutional reform referendum, which saw a 57% turnout with 90% voting for change.

Journalist and author Afshin Rattansi, who worked for Al Jazeera, told RT that, “sadly”, the channel had become one-sided voice for the Qatari government’s stance against Bashar al-Assad, having begun as the region’s revolutionary broadcaster.

“It is very disturbing to hear how Al Jazeera is now becoming this regional player for foreign policy in a way that some would arguably say the BBC and others have been for decades,” he said. “If Al Jazeera Arabic is going to take a war-like stance after [the] Qatari government, this would be very ill.”

I would love to see the flow chart of the control....must be so twisted it would break a snakes back to crawl up it....
MI6? Bahrain?Quatar? all in bed since the Ottoman empire crumbled?
very likely, the arabs and the british are into their royals.....too bad we lack intelligence here....
A little better details of how this all works....whos married to whom, and what that means type stuff....
The news has been rather muffled regarding the various protests in these nations and saudi Arabia as well
You dont suppose that theres a MSM news blockade on certain sensitive subjects which may alter western opinions on whats really shaping up over there......?
I do expect some very sweeping changes in the borders, and goverments of that area soon.......
In fact it could all go ass akimbo from totally unexpected directions which we have very little knowledge of due to the censored news.....some very much older agendas working tha what we think here.....??
