And wow Breitbart's Big Peace features articles by Col. Oliver North, US military scumbag extraordinaire.
As if to balance the likes, viewers are now able to comb a Combined WikiLeaks Afghanistan and Iraq war search engine

Whether the allegations are true or not, aren't they like 10 yrs old?

As for reliable news sources, my vote goes for WikiLeaks.

No. "Collateral Murder" video had so much bias that it made fox news truly "fair and balanced."

Waaaaaaaaaaay to edit it with comments wikileaks.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that Al Jazeera is gaining more prominence in the U.S. because it offers "real news"--something she said American media were falling far short of doing.

Clinton was speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and she said the U.S. is losing the "information war" in the world. One of the reasons she cited for this was the quality of channels like Al Jazeera.

"Viewership of Al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it's real news," she said. "You may not agree with it, but you feel like you're getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners."


Probably why it was vilified and bombed by the US gov't not so long ago.

Pulitzer Prize Winner
ProPublica reporters Jesse Eisinger and Jake Bernstein have been awarded a Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting for their stories on how some Wall Street bankers, seeking to enrich themselves at the expense of their clients and sometimes even their own firms, at first delayed but then worsened the financial crisis. We at ProPublica are delighted by this award, and deeply honored.


Jesse and Jake's work was greatly augmented by partnerships with public radio's "Planet Money" and "This American Life." While radio reporting is not eligible for the Pulitzer, we want to acknowledge a great debt to, and celebrate our partnership with, Adam Davidson, Alex Blumberg and Ira Glass and their teams. I also urge you, if you haven't seen them before, to check out the two songs -- a Broadway-style parody from the team that has recently collaborated on "The Book of Mormon," and a work from the young geniuses who Auto-Tune the News -- that accompanied this series. There's also a comic strip.

Those Planet Money and This American Life episodes were great.
