Some good writer is missing a bet here – a reporter character named Solenoid McTavish, who mis-states everything.

This simply means that now she has a contract to work with our nation’s enemies and will be paid for her anti-American sentiment.

But, then, what’s the difference between Al-Jazeera and CNN?

At least Al-Jazeera makes no effort to hide it’s anti-American bias.

In fact, Al-jazeera will report on things that our media spikes. I find it to be better than our media for reporting on our country (particularly concerning 0bama or anything democrat). I also learn about events in our country from Russia Times, Pravda, as well as English news outlets.

I feel like a Czechoslovakian in the 60s when it comes to our democrat party propaganda machine. At least all of them KNEW it was propaganda. The LIVers take the msm as gospel.

What happened to her? It is really bizarre. I hope this little project that made Al Gore a lot of money fails miserably.

Don’t want to be mean but she is looking kind of old and tired lately. I saw a video of hers on youtube that was rather recent AND…. not a good look.

Hey Soledad you do look old and tired. Look at yourself in the mirror girl. The liberal ugly is coming out of your pores. It is what it is baby girl.

Liberals are fugly inside and it comes out outside eventually.

It is interesting to note that Al Jazeera is hiring all the worst “journalists” in America to work for them. many of the worst folks from CNN are now their employees!

She just wanted to make absolutely, POSITIVELY sure that she’d never wind up with an unflattering Islam report showing up on her teleprompter. ‘Cause, y’know, it’s tough to get that surprised look off your face when you suddenly realize that somewhere on Earth a Muslim did a bad thing.

Look up the definition of the word “whore.” Does she fit?

whore – a prostitute or promiscuous woman
prostitute – a person who willingly uses his or her talent or ability in a base and unworthy way, usually for money

Yep, she fits.

Wonder how long it will be before:

A-She is wearing a garbage bag/Burka or whatever they call it

B-She starts attacking America in her reports

C-AlGorezerra folds up cause no one cares except about two dozen table cloth wearing members of the Islam Bunch?

D-Keith Olberblabber shows up there for a job?

A- The female anchors do not now, field reporters do but so do western ones when in the caliphate.

B- That happened in late 2000.

C- Al Jezerra has news that is NOT always positive on the SCOAMF, unlike every news org in the USA.

D- In talks since March.

The garbage bag comment reminded me of this:

I originally saw the 2nd picture with the caption “those are some lovely children you have, Ma’am”.

I saw that a while back, People are gonna think I am mean but I laughed so hard I almost got sick when I say the picture with the garbage bags…I am one of those people who likes the bizarre when it comes to humor…

I had the same reaction. I like witty absurdity. The original was coffee-out-my-nose-worthy.

And I bet it’s because Al Jazerra is the only media outlet that would hire her sorry ass.

Actually, this makes sense, at least to Al Jazeera. She has name recognition, so promoting her will be easier. Not that anyone watched her on CNN, but they don’t need to waste time getting to introduce us to her.
