Of course we cant just blidnly accept this, all media is biased in some way. But i would rather accept news from this islamic news sources than kuffaar ones that are full of lies. This link which the brother gave, exactly what i am saying. Good link mash'allaah. Basically, bottom line, not only are the mujahideen taking on the super-power, they are not only resisting and defending, they are winning and dealing the invaders with brutal blows. Subhanallaah, verily all praise is due to Allaah azzawajjaal, he aids and helps the mujaihdeen in so many ways, by his grace these brave resistance fighters are defending the muslim land, Allaah Huakbar!

Of course we cant just blidnly accept this, all media is biased in some way.True. Oh, how very true. More biased or less biased, but biased still.
But i would rather accept news from this islamic news sources than kuffaar ones that are full of lies.Hmm.. Naturally no-one would accept reports from a news source that is known to be prone to falsehood. However, dear Hashim, I hope that you're not implying that all media that is not from the islamic world is all utter lies and fairy tales? It would result in a.., well, peculiar worldview.

Yes i agree that it would lead to a peculiar worldview indeed.....IF that was what i was saying, but its not what i am saying. What i am saying is, we have iraq, and we have the action and news pouring out of iraq every day. We outside of iraq are eager to know what is happening inside iraq, we are eager to know ho our brothers and sisters are doing, about the war between the mujahideen, the islamic resistance movement, and the infidel invaders. But here is the problem, the news. We have two options, islamic based news, and the western media. I for one, and i am sure the majority of the ummah, is against the western media, in fact anyone with common sense would be against the westrern media, after the massive lies they propagated, and their propaganda war on islaam. Now rttsq, as a muslim, i would rather listen to my own islamic news, than the western media news. The western media reporters in iraq, are lodged in the green zone, like cowards fearing for their lives. They dare not move out of this heavily defeded establishment, all their news comes from the US military. SUBHANALLAAH, how can i listen or belive this blanat biased stance then?!! However, the islamic reportes, like mafkaat al islaam, my fellow muslim brothers, are with the mujahideen. In every town and even city, reporting actively with the islamic movement, my fellow muslim brothers aswell. Now come on, dont get me wrong, i acknoledge that ALL media, no matter from which source, is biased in some way. But i would rather listen to and get my news from islamic reporters than the western media.

How would you gauge who's bias is more/less?
18th July 2005, 19:54
Probably because the people that Hashim is pointing out would be proud of more deaths (martydoms), rather than keeping hush about them. Also, these numbers might convince more people to join up, so if anything the numbers of death would be more exaggerated not less. I think the media on the East side is less biased than that on the West side. But biased im sure, it still is.

Salam o' most wise Haroon,
But biased im sure, it still is.Oooh yes it is. Perhaps even 'subconsciously', in a way, but it still is. My two cents would be to read any and all reports from as many angles as possible, without prejudice. I guess it's the only way to make any fair assessment of any situations. Kinda like a court session, ain't it? It would be a tad unfair to listen to the accusing party exclusively, no?
However, I can not sincerely agree with you on the east/west issue. I believe that both sides carry an equal amount of guilt when it comes to bias. There are quite substantial protests (http://www.globalpolicy.org/ngos/role/iraq.htm) against the actions of the Coalition in non-muslim, western countries, as well. Even (http://www.wsws.org/articles/2002/oct2002/us-o28.shtml) before (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/869081.stm) the (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_protests_against_war_on_Iraq) war (http://archive.democrats.com/view.cfm?id=9226).
