The Al-Jazeer HALL OF SHAME
Accuracy in Media publication
These journalists have been inducted into the Al-Jazeera International “Hall of Shame” because they are identified in news reports as being employed by the English-language spin-off of the Qatar-funded Arabic Al-Jazeera, which has a despicable record of collaborating with anti-American radical Islamic terrorists. Al-Jazeera’s first managing director, Mohammed Jassem al-Ali, was exposed as an agent of the Saddam Hussein dictatorship; its Kabul, Afghanistan, bureau chief, Tayseer Alouni, was charged, convicted and sentenced to prison in Spain for being an agent of al Qaeda; and Al- Jazeera employee Sami al-Haj was captured in Afghanistan and is now in prison on terrorism charges. Captured terrorists in Iraq say they came to Iraq to kill Americans because of the words and images on Al-Jazeera. The Islamic Army of Iraq, a group that includes former members of Saddam Hussein's intelligence service, has praised Al-Jazeera for playing an “important role” in “our fight against the enemies.” The Islamic Army of Iraq is the same group that recently released video to CNN showing snipers shooting and killing American soldiers in Iraq.

Stop Al-Jazeera International
Accuracy in Media is in the forefront of a national effort to stop Al-Jazeera International, a pro-terrorist media operation, from gaining access to the American media market. AIM editor Cliff Kincaid has appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” and Fox News’ “Dayside” and “Your World with Neil Cavuto” television programs to educate the public about Al-Jazeera’s new English-language channel. AIM’s efforts to keep AJI out of cable and satellite systems in the U.S. have been covered by the Associated Press, USA Today, The New York Sun, Forbes, The Washington Post, Newsday, Entertainment Weekly, and U.S. News and World Report, as well as London’s Press Gazette and the pan-Arab daily Asharq Alawsat. The channel encountered several delays in its official launch, apparently because the AIM campaign has complicated its efforts to get carriage by cable and satellite providers. AIM is urging a federal review of the channel's operations in the U.S. to determine if it poses a risk to the national security and whether it constitutes a global terrorist entity whose business operations on American soil must be stopped.
Terror Television Documentary
In May of 2006, AIM released a mini-documentary called “Terror Television: The Rise of Al-Jazeera and the Hate America Media.” This 20-minute film details how terrorist networks use Al-Jazeera to advance their anti-American agenda.
Letters to Cable & Satellite Companies
AIM editor Cliff Kincaid sent letters to senior executives at the top 25 U.S. cable companies, as well as satellite providers DirecTV and EchoStar Communications, urging them not to carry Al-Jazeera International.
Public Opinion Poll
Accuracy in Media commissioned an independent poll, released on September 13th, which found that Americans oppose the channel coming into their homes through U.S. cable and satellite systems by a margin of roughly 2-to-1.
Congressional Information Campaign
AIM sent copies of its “Terror Television” DVD to over eighty key members of Congress. Its October 4th screening of “Terror Television” was attended by over one hundred congressional staffers and covered by an Al-Jazeera camera crew.
AIM runs Internet banner ads and print ads about “Terror Television” in national newspapers
Accuracy in Media set up a website, www.stopaljazeera.org, where it regularly posts new information about Al-Jazeera.
