New York: State Lawmaker Calls for Boycott of ‘Misogynistic’ Al-Jazeera

Al-Jazeera-English-620x411A New York state assemblyman and Marine Corps veteran is calling on VerizonComcastDirecTV and Dish Network to drop “the notoriously anti-American, anti-Semitic and misogynistic” Al-Jazeera network from their basic cable package.

Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor is calling for a boycott of the cable providers if they do not drop Al-Jazeera by Sept. 11, his office said in a press release Monday.

“Al Jazeera is the anti-American, anti-Semitic, misogynistic propaganda wing of a foreign government,” Mr. Lalor, a Republican who represents a Hudson Valley district, said in a statement. “The network has celebrated brutal terrorists and ‘reported’ as fact anti-Semitic 9/11 truther conspiracy theories. American TV viewers shouldn’t have to subsidize Al Jazeera through a part of their basic cable bill.”
