According to newly released Al Qaeda documents – the documents are being revealed as part of the Obama campaign’s “spike the football” effort over the one-year anniversary of the Bin Laden death – Adam Gadahn, spokesman for the terrorist group, loved MSNBC. “I used to think that MSNBC channel may be good and neutral a bit, but is has lately fired two of the most famous journalists – Keith Olbermann and Octavia Nasser the Lebanese,” Gadahn wrote. Nasser was actually fired from CNN – but only after sending a tweet lamenting the death of a top-ranking Hezbollah terrorist.
Al Qaeda also had a warm spot for Brian Ross; Gadahn said, “The channel is still proud for its interview with the shaykh (Bin Laden).” And as for CBS, “it has a famous programme (60 Minutes) that has some popularity and a good reputation for its long broadcasting time. Only god knows the reality, as I am not really in a position to do so.”
The one channel Al Qaeda couldn’t stand, predictably, is Fox News. Fox News, said Gadahn, “falls into the abyss as you know, and lacks neutrality too.” Overall, said Gadahn, news stories “should be sent for example to ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN and maybe PBS and VOA. As for Fox News, let her die in her anger.”
Gadahn also urged Al Qaeda to tell journalists to cover global warming rather than Al Qaeda. Apparently many in the mainstream media got the message.
