Sun wrong to promote Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera Media NetworkHamad bin Isa Al KhalifaHamas

Based on The Sun's unprecedented pre-launch promotion for Al Jazeera ("The new news team," Aug. 4) there can't possibly be any doubt whatsoever that The Sun is joined at the hip with anti-American conspirators whose goal is "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

Unfortunately, I feel far too many readers of The Sun are unaware that the person named in The Sun article as a principal provider of funds for Al Jazeera — the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani — earlier this year blamed Israel for the turmoil in the Arab world that threatens to plunge the entire region into war.

I also understand that the Sheikh is aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Hamas-controlled government in Gaza, and rebel forces in Syria.

Expecting Al Jazeera to provide unbiased journalism on TV is like expecting The Sun to provide unbiased journalism in print.
