AJ is OK, says anchor

"Had I space and time, I would rebut all of Mr. [Judea] Pearl’s charges against Al Jazeera English, but let me engage a few of them here.
We do not mix 'news coverage and extremist propagandizing.' . . . Suicide attacks have never been called 'martyrdom' operations, 'commando attacks' or, most absurd of all, 'paradise operations.'
. . . Nor do Al Jazeera English’s editors portray a struggle between an 'evil-meaning Western oppressor and its helpless, righteous Arab victims.' "

Letter to the Editor by David Marash, an anchor at Al Jazeera English.

The New York Times. Al Jazeera English: What It Is, and Isn’t (3 Letters). January 22, 2007.
