Al-Jazeera comes to Canada

I think this is great! Now we can watch beheadings live and in colour. No, seriously, the fact is that the Western media insists on avoiding beheading footage in much the same way as they refused to show the jumpers on 9/11. Delicate sensibilities and all.

Al-Jazeera has no such scruple.

Of course the CRTC is warning the Canadian distributors to "play nice". Yeech.

In its ruling, the commission said distributors of Al-Jazeera in Canada will be required to guard against the broadcast of "any abusive comment."

The weekly sermons with their ritual Jew hatred should be enough to get the station banned...wanna bet.
