Al-Jazeera Staffers Start A Blog Called "Don't Bomb Us"

Check out the new blog by Al-Jazeera staffers at (via firedoglake and crooks and liars.)

I think it's a good idea for them to write this blog. Maybe this way people who aren't ordinarily sympathetic to the station will understand that real human beings work for it (and bombing it might be a bad idea.)

Can you imagine if FOX News, certainly a media organization with a political bias and bent towards propaganda (kinda like Bush's claims against Al-Jazeera), had its headquarters on Sixth Avenue in New York bombed by a United States presidential administration that didn't like what they were broadcasting to the world?

Hard to fathom, right?

So why are some on the right, like Daniel Johnson at The New York Sun and the fuckers at Powerline, cheerleading the story that Bush wanted to bomb Al-Jazeera?

And why is it that when many people on the right don't like somebody, their first instinct is to bomb the fuck out of 'em?
