Al Jazeera, Meet the Times' Editorial Page

A bit of Al Jazeera propaganda ("alleged war on terror") sounds strangely familiar.

After comparing Al Jazeera's core audience to that of Fox News, Alessandra Stanley's review of the Arab-language channel'sAmerican debut notes: "A promo for an upcoming program described American policy in Iraq as George Bush's 'alleged war on terror.'"

Sound familiar?

From Wednesday's lead Times editorial: "The nation's image is at stake, as well as the safety of every man and woman who is fighting Mr. Bush's so-called war on terror."
