Zwichenzug media watch, international edition
The headline for the story is, Powell fudge on Iraqi WMDs. The third paragraph begins, "His latest comments marked a major climb down from his earlier shrill rhetoric..." And the next paragraph describes Powell as, "chastised after months of futile search."
All this in contrast to the American press, where Powell has been consistently portrayed as the voice of diplomatic reason. While it's true that Al Jazeera is displaying some clear bias here, at least it's honest bias.
