The correspondence suggests that al-Qaida carefully monitored U.S. cable news networks and generally didn't like what it saw. "We can say that there is no single channel that we could rely on for our messages,'' Gadahn wrote, although he described ABC as "all right, actually it could be one of the best channels as far as we are concerned.'' He complained that Fox News "falls into the abyss, as you know, and lacks neutrality.'' CNN, he said, "seems to be in cooperation with the government more than the others except Fox News, of course.'' Gadahn suggested sending videos of bin Laden's remarks to all the U.S. news networks _ except Fox News. "Let her die in anger,'' he wrote.
The correspondence suggests that Bin Laden's inner circle closely monitored US news media. Al-Qaeda media adviser Adam Gadahn described ABC News as "all right, actually it could be one of the best channels as far as we are concerned", but he said Fox News "falls into the abyss" and "lacks neutrality".
The FBI lists Gadahn's aliases as Abu Suhayb Al-Amriki, Abu Suhayb, Yihya Majadin Adams, Adam Pearlman, and Yayah.
But Adam Pearlmen is his REAL name! Adam is the grandson of the late Carl K. Pearlman; a prominent Jewish urologist in Orange County. Carl was also a member of the board of directors of the Anti-Defamation League, which was caught spying on Americans for Israel in 1993, much as AIPAC has been caught up in the more recent spy scandal.
