Al_Jazeera (Arabic: الجزيرة, translated: “The Island”) from Doha, Qatar,is one of the best news outlets to cover the middle east.

Headlines that try to manipulate the public are called “Yellow Journalism“.
“present little or no legitimate well-researched news while instead using eye-catching headlines for increased sales” or manipulation of the masses.

war based on “intelligence” – in the past – has often proofen blatant lies to scare the public and decision makers/politicians into supporting an illegal and wrong war.

The only purpose to start a war.
The NSA and CIA both claim credit for this “lie that worked so well”

“anonymously sourced intelligence.”
“In 2003, it was Iraq – in 2019, it’s Iran.
Much of American news reporting on US-Iran relations glosses over President Donald Trump’s role and the history of American aggression against Iran.
While Islamic Republic – ruled by authoritarians and involved in wars in Syria and Yemen – is far from an innocent player, inflammatory headlines, unnamed sources, and decades of misinformation in the US media over Iran don’t help.”
Julian Assange has been nominated for a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, according to the legal campaign to defend him.
