The Terrorist Way of Tackling Perceived Media Bias

Iraqi terrorists have targeted a new enemy: Arabic-speaking Americanized spy journalists (or ASASJ for short)

Arab satellite channel Al Arabiya on Sunday denied accusations by Islamist groups that it had a pro-U.S. editorial line, a day after a bloody car-bombing of its offices in Baghdad.

 

Seven Iraqis were killed and 19 wounded after a car exploded outside the Saudi-owned network’s bureau in the biggest attack yet on media in the country.

 

“We have always striven to be neutral and balanced and avoid leaning toward any party in the conflict,” a statement issued by the Dubai-based channel said.

 

“Al Arabiya has paid a high price for its stance. It has been banned twice from operating in Iraq and a number of its journalists have been killed by U.S. forces,” it added.

 

A group calling itself the ‘1920 Battalions’, after an uprising against British control of Iraq, said in a statement on Web sites used by Iraqi militants: “Thank God, the building of the Arabic-speaking Americanized spy journalists was destroyed.”

However, far from being Arabic-speaking Americanized spy journalists, Al Arabiya has been criticized by the US for its coverage of Iraq  

 

Note the different responses: US criticizes and the terrorists kill. Yet the Left would still support the terrorists over the US any day.
