Control Room

This documentary covers the Al Jazeera news network from before the start of the American/UK War against Iraq. The film gives an insight at what goes on at Al Jazeera HQ in Qatar as well as in Iraq during the war. It proves the channel is not the propoganda outlet or “Osama Bin-Laden’s mouthpiece” which Donald Rumsfeld has apparently called it.

This is a brilliant movie that does not draw conclusions and if it is propganda for Al Jazeera then it was too clever for me to notice. Read a better review here.
