Al Jazeera has issued an apology to the Fox News Network for it's portrayal of the war in Iraq. Fox has complained that the Middle Eastern News Network's reporting is not "fair or balanced." An Al Jazeera spokesman Abdul Bull Durham, was quoted as saying, " We actually thought they'd be pleased...after all imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Our correspondents watched the Fox News shows for years in order to learn the inaccuracy trade. We were surprised and saddened that they weren't impressed. We pledge to try harder to report to our people the way Fox reports to it's viewers."
Fox reporters and commentators, one of which has recently said that the total Iraqi civilian casualties since the bombing began was only one thousand, were incensed by Al Jazeera's reporting of women and children being killed in missile attacks, Iraqi civilian dissatisfaction with the American Occupation and general unrest in the country. Speaking on the condition of anonymity one member of the group said, "What the fuck do these rag heads want anyway? We're giving them Democracy, for Christ sakes; sometimes Democracy hurts like hell and they should be grateful for the pain."
An unnamed CNN reporter, when told of Fox's outrage said, " Well, yeah, it's Fox, what do you expect, fairness and accuracy?"
