Chemical Ali sentence coverage

At 0849 gmt this morning, CNN/I broke into the live edition of World Sport, with Candy Reid in Atlanta, to bring breaking news coverage of the sentence of Saddam Hussein's cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, "Chemical Ali", for his role in the death of Iraqi Kurds in Anfal in the late 80s.

Rather than Shihab Rattansi bring this breaking news from CNN Center, Hala Gorani did so live from Baghdad. (This allowed World Sport to continue off-air, for the rebroadcasts later today). Hala spoke to several people on the phone with archive footage of the attacks and the aftermath shown on-screen. Delayed footage of the trial in Baghdad was also shown.

Coverage broke off for a break at 0857 gmt, and at 0900 gmt Shihab Rattansi returned at CNN Center and together with Hala Gorani in Baghdad, breaking news coverage continued.
Larry King Replay started at 0907 gmt in progress.

(As an aside...I always assumed that the airing of Larry King at 0900 gmt was a recording CNN/I had made, and then played out. But I've recently realised that Larry King Live is also rebroadcast on CNN/US at the same time. So, technically, I wonder if CNN/I actually cuts to CNN/US for this?)

CNN/I cut into Larry King at 0925 gmt to bring further breaking news coverage of the Chemical Ali sentencing. Due to the delay of the courtroom video footage, there was no footage of Ali receiving his sentence until now, and this was aired while Shihab spoke to Hala in Baghdad.

Larry King resumed at 0930 gmt

CNN’s Arab Propagandist Hala Gorani introduces us to a western-type Arab singer ‘Caramel’ as if that’s a ‘normal Arab today’.

The Arab Hala Gorani http://edition.cnn.com/CNN/anchors_reporters/gorani.hala.html introduces us on http://www.cnn.com/CNN/Programs/ywt/ to a western-type Arab singer ‘Caramel’ as if that’s a ‘normal Arab today’.

The Arab Hala Gorani has a long history on CNN to ‘glorify Middle east cultures’ on her show ‘Inside the Middle east’ http://edition.cnn.com/CNNI/Programs/middle.east/, she’s a master on picking & selecting the rare and never on the mainstream. In other words, not showing reality but being a propaganda tool for the Arab world, when no one speaks [really] for the west in that wild jungle hatred empire.

In this age of “multiculturalism” that is nothing but a tool by Islamists, it’s not the time to lie and be a propaganda machine instead of showing what’s most important, what most Arab Muslims have mostly, intolerant mostly, from their most venomous mainstream media to the ‘guy on the Arab street’, the dark cult of the ‘angry Arab’ from their native world onto Paris or Amsterdam or Sydney, etc. is being cheered and boosted by Arab journalists and leadership.

Until the Arab Muslim leadership & media will not change, this cult will only keep growing no matter what “excuse” they try so hard to sell us.

A suggestion to Her ‘Inside the middle east’, Like to select postivity in that world? start showing us [exactly] how many in that world like the west [no matter what ‘policy’ we take].

This is another [from 2006] example of that Arab Hala Gorani

This is just such powerful proof of how lame the Media-Left have become. The CNN interview of Abdurahmen Jafar of the Muslim Council of Britain conducted by Hala Gorani is just too aggravating. Especially when the

This is just such powerful proof of how lame the Media-Left have become. The CNN interview of Abdurahmen Jafar of the Muslim Council of Britain conducted by Hala Gorani is just too aggravating. Especially when the rotten twit compares the 12 cartoons to anti-Semitic cartoons during the Nazi era in Germany as an indication that Europe is now 60 years on “re-learning to hate”. Yeah right - he might as well have said in the middle of the night, the sun is up, let’s switch off the lights with Hala obligently replying “Your right, it’s practically glaring in here. Someone switch the lights of pleeease”. How can she let him get away wih this blatant distortion; as CNN’s hostess of ‘Inside the Middle East’, a half-hour programme featuring stories on the “most important social and cultural issues in the region”, surely she must be aware of the daily plethora of precisely such Nazi style hate cartoons published unabatedly THROUGHOUT the last 60 years.
