Al-Jazeera Not Popular in Iraq

Iraqi’s are turning to Al Arabiya for their daily news feeds. A new survey holds that the Dubai based channel captures 41 percent of the satellite TV viewers; almost as many as the local Al Iraqiya news channel. Al-Jazeera on the other hand only ranked number six. Aarkvard says Al-Jaz “has struggled with an official governmental ban, many Iraqis dislike al-Jazeera because they don't like its coverage or resent its allegedly pro-Saddam coverage before (and after) the war.” He also notes that the US government sponsored Al-Hurra doesn’t appear at all in the survey.
