Egyptians Reject Muslim Brotherhood, Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera doesn't cover reality because it isn't a news organization, but an ideologically driven propaganda network.

An excerpt from, "What's Up with Al Jazeera English's Egypt Coverage?" by Alicia P.Q. Wittmeyer (Foreign Policy, July 3, 2013):
There's been an abundance of -- deserved -- criticism of CNN's coverage today, which spent much of the morning focused on the ongoing George Zimmerman trial while giving short shrift to the showdown between the military and Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

But if CNN's ears should be burning right now - what about Al Jazeera English? Around noon, EST, just as tensions in Egypt were peaking -- as rumors swirled of tanks taking to the streets in Cairo and President Mohamed Morsy being held under house arrest -- the Qatar-based broadcaster was showing viewers in the United States ... a regularly scheduled special about undocumented immigrants in America? (The channel switched to live Egypt coverage a few minutes before 1 p.m. EST, but continued to intersperse other programming.)
