And now some contrast.

Al Jazeera's coverage in Egypt has been excellent, exceeding both the US cable networks and the BBC in the depth of their coverage and the courage of their journalists - but not everyone has enjoyed what they have to say:

In my opinion, Mr. O'Reilly is being an anti-Arab bigot in this video, and his previous support for the Mubarak regime against pro-democracy protesters has clouded his judgement on this issue. Perhaps his pro-Israeli bias has turned towards this overtly racist language. Then again, perhaps O'Reilly should turn an eye to his own network and the language and opinions of some of the guests on his show.
