A Public Relations Boon To The US

The Times of London reports:

Al-Jazeera has suspended reports from its entire Iraq-based team in protest at the treatment of two correspondents by the Baghdad regime, the Arab-language broadcater said today. But the station said today that it would continue to broadcast live and taped events, including news conferences by Iraqi officials and air strikes, without any commentary.

Al-Jazeera has provided a major source of anti-US spin about Iraq war events around the world. Reduction in its coverage should be a world wide public relations boon to US.
