  • More Competition for the MSM

    Posted by Ginny on October 8th, 2005 (All posts by )

    Der Spiegel describes the weekly Al Quaida show:

    The producers of “Voice of the Caliphate” have gone to great lengths to make the show look professional and to project the image that they are informed. A station-logo, sub-titles, and flashing text all appear on screen, as does the box — standardized by reputable news shows — above the anchorman’s shoulder displaying a picture to go with the news item being presented.

    Of course, the repeated clips of suicide bombings & training camps, the announcer in a black mask with a Koran & rifle on the desk might mean the viewer wouldn’t confuse this with MSM. If that wasn’t a give-away, then referring to the behind-the-scenes workers as “God’s sword,” or the “Approaching Dawn” might be another clue.

      Sounds like ‘Must see TV!’ (now that NBC doesn’t need the phrase anymore, with their ratings in the dumpster).

    2. Mike Cunningham Says:

      Fans of the wonderfully-unbiased AlJazeera channel will now be able to watch Sir David Frost extol the virtues of whichever X-list celebrity can be exhumed for him to interview. This show will be sandwiched in between clips from that same “Al Quaeda Half-hour” where the supremely brave suicide-clones are shown blowing themseves sky-high along with as many innocents as can be caught in the blast!
      Some show!
