Leaked Al Jazeera English email! So, concerted propaganda after all. How surprising.
The National Review has published a leaked email from Al Jazeera executive producer Salah-Aldeen Khadr to his anchors and news correspondents. If you had any notion that Al Jazeera was an “objective” source of news about the world in general or the Middle East in particular, have a gander at this. I’ve bolded bits of it, but what it says is that the newsroom should play up the notion that the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists were racists and that killing them was not an attack on free speech, that the purpose of the cartoons was not to make a point about religion but just to insult Muslims, and that the paper should discourage further publication of the cartoons (thus giving terrorists the victory they wanted). It’s disgusting, but gives a rare inside look at how “moderate” Muslims try to whitewash the extremist perfidies of the faith.
