Al-Jazeera: all the news that's fit to suppress 

As the Italian hostage Fabrizio Quattrocchi tries to tear off his hoods and screams at his kidnappers "Now I'll show you how an Italian dies" before he's shot in the head at point blank range, Al-Jazeera finally finds video footage that's "too gruesome" to show its viewers.

Might it be because broadcasting the footage of a cold blood execution of a defenceless civilian could actually turn the Western public opinion firmly against the bandits and scum masquerading as Iraqi "freedom fighters"? Funny how Al-Jazeera is never too reluctant to show Muslim blood and gore when it's the Americans who are doing the shooting.
