At least now he'll be drawing a check from the correct employer.

1 This is akin to a Fox News reporter joining the Stormfront News (no link, because they're racist dirtbags). Yet, oddly enough, it seems to be "business as usual."

More interesting is that this isn't the first CNN staffer to go to Al-Jazeera.

5 Sort of, Rusty.
Al Jazeera is actually more conservative than CNN.

6 Has Al Jazeera no standards?

8 I know this will sound whacky, but one can actually get a whole more news about what's going on in the Mideast from AL Jazeera than from CNN and the network channels. And AL Jazeera might be less anti-American biased than CNN. Give a visit a make your own call.

12 You knuckleheads didn't even notice that "he" is a SHE named JULIA. Back to remedial reading for you.

Keith Olbermann is more popular than CNN.

13 What a day. NBC/MSNBC has suddenly discovered there were terrorists in Iraq before the invasion and the same terrorists were making "WMD" of all things + planning WMD attacks on the Western world. . Here I thought they were making 'Koolaide' for the left wingers. Kind of shoots ole Muttering Murtha and Hanoi John (along with the entire liberal world) down doesn't it? Na, the rest of the moonbats will ignore the news as usual, even if it's from one of their members.

14 Keith Olbermann is more popular than CNN.

And Fahrenheit 9/11 is the highest-grossing "documentary" ever. What's your point?

15 So what's the problem? The jump looks good to me, as long as the "journalists" find their niche. At least I know where the assholes come from.

16 "Keith Olbermann is more popular than CNN."

what the hell does that mean? Nobody watches MSNBC, does that mean even fewer watch CNN? Does that mean more people are friends with Olbermann the moron than a disembodied network?

17 "You knuckleheads didn't even notice that "he" is a SHE named JULIA. Back to remedial reading for you."

The article I read - the one linked by Ace - said her name is Lucia, not Julia, Newman. We'll have another dose of remedial reading over here, please.

18 Thanks for the link Ace.

Just to clear it up, the correspondents name is Lucia, but she is a she. However there is a "he" that jumped also - Dave Marash, formerly of Nightline, will be their Washington anchor/reporter.

19 CNN is trying to throw Jack Cafferty into the deal as a newsguy to be named later.......but Al Jazeera says they are full up on America/Bush hating news people....but when they have an opening they'll let them know

20 Well, Jill Carroll is free. That's good news.

And of course she said that she was "treated well."

Miss Carroll was must be one of those rare gals who is easy to please, easy-going, and not too picky. Any woman who regards being abducted at held captive for a few moths in a third-world environment as good treatment is indeed a rare find and defintitely marriage material. I guess all those videos of Jill weeping and pleading for her life must have been due to PMS and nothing more.

I can hardly wait for the book.

21 Carroll may be going thru Stockholm Syndrome tho.

23 Dose anyone rememebr BAGHDAD PETE? or PETER ARNET?

Boy, I sure do. It's funny that you mention it, spurwing. Last night I was thinking about the coverage of the first gulf war. We had two telivisions and four radios going in someone's office - all on, so we could listen to all the news. I remember Bernie Thomas crawling around on the hotel rooftop. It was pretty exciting.

Didn't Arnett become an American citizen? Why bother? I googled him trying to find out and learned that his son-in-law is John Yoo. He was the AG who helped draft the Patriot Act and did a series of memos on torture. I would love to be a fly on the wall at one of their family get togethers. lol!

24 Dose anyone rememebr BAGHDAD PETE? or PETER ARNET?

Hahaha... what is this, an April Fools Joke, Spurwing? Goading somebody into an actual conversation with you!

25 Hey! Knock it off! I have asked spurwing questions before and he has politely answered them. He just doesn't like a lot of attention focused on him.

Posted by: shawn at April 01, 2006 05:21 AM (uLve2)

26 Like those leprechauns that disappear when you shine a light on them.

27 He just doesn't like a lot of attention focused on him.

Don't make me laugh... he's got a devoted web page to his musings!

But... if you can actually understand and converse intelligently with the Spurwing, then who am I to cast dispersions on either of you.

28 Like those leprechauns that disappear when you shine a light on them.

You got it.
