No doubt that American mainstream media has turned to *#%. But Hillary goes so far as to say Al Jazeera is the real news.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made it clear today that she is worried the United States is losing what she calls the “information war” abroad.
China and Russia, she says, have started English-language networks that push their message overseas and even the Taliban controls the airwaves in Afghanistan.
And in the Arab world? Al Jazeera is king, and Clinton says she can see why.
“Al Jazeera has been the leader in that are literally changing people’s minds and attitudes. And like it or hate it, it is really effective,” she said.
“In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners,” she added.
I guess this means Hillary wants to see American news be more like Al Jazeera than say, Glenn Beck TV. Hmmmm.
