Accuracy in Media (AIM),
the media watchdog group that campaigned to keep Al-Jazeera English off
American airwaves in 2006, 
said today that Dave Marash's decision to leave the channel confirms its warnings 
and fears.  Marash, the top U.S. journalist at Al-Jazeera English, says that anti-American bias 
at the network was a factor in his decision to leave.
(Jack comes to the rescue): What is bias? When I read the New York Times I read for three sentences and I see bias. I read the major U.S. newspapers as biased, heavily so. The debate about bias in media is heavily nonsensical. We should just ignore it.
