Al-Reuters or Al Reutzeera (Reuters nickname)

Reuters is an international news agency heaquartered in London. Some Reuters critics have claimed that the news organization has an anti-Western and pro-Muslim bias. This criticism intensified in 2006, when a photographer hired by Reuters was accused of doctoring a photo of an Israeli air strike against Hezbollah in Lebanon to make the civilian damage appear worse than it actually was.
 
The nickname “al-Reuters” has been cited in print since at least March 2003. The blogger Doug Ross on March 24, 2011 used the nickname “Al Reutzeera” (Reuters + Al Jazeera).

Reuters Group Limited (informally Reuters, pronounced /ˈrɔɪtərz/) is a global news agency headquartered in London, United Kingdom owned by Thomson Reuters. Until its acquisition by The Thomson Corporation in 2008, the Reuters news agency formed part of an independent company, Reuters Group PLC, which was also a provider of financial market data, with news reporting comprising less than 10% of the company’s income. All of Thomson Reuters’ financial market data activities have now been combined into a single Markets Division, of which the Reuters news agency forms a part.

You mean Al Reuters? 

Free Republic 
The shots fired at the “unarmed” terrorist in that mosque in Fallujah are called “security rounds.” Its a safety issue pure and simple. After assaulting through a target, put a security round in everybody’s head. Sorry al-Reuters, there’s no paddy wagon rolling around Fallujah picking up “prisoners” and offering them a hot cup a joe, falafel, and a blanket. There’s no time to dick around in the target, you clear the space, dump the chumps, and moveon.org. Are Corpsman expected to treat wounded terrorists?

Al-Reuters: Jihad Journalism
Tuesday, August 8th, 2006 12:21 pm by Neal
Yesterday’s Investor’s Business Daily has an excellent article on Reuters entitled “Jihad Journalism?”
 
Media Bias: Need a little anti-war, anti-Semitic buck-up? Try some Reuters coverage. The British news outlet will be only too happy to oblige.
 
Over the weekend, a Reuters photographer was caught trying to make one of Israel’s defensive attacks against Hezbollah in Lebanon look much more devastating than it was. The photo was eventually withdrawn and the photographer ostensibly fired.
(...)
Is Reuters a patsy or collaborator? Either way, it is helping the cause of terrorism and undermining civilization.
 
Unless it wants to become just another branch of Al-Jazeera, it had better make meaningful institutional changes soon.

Al-Reuters borrows a line from al-Jazeera
What’s the difference between al-Reuters and al-Jazeera? One is an anti-Semitic news media outlet and the other is an Arab television network that is anti-Semitic (Hat Tip: Backspin).

“Media watchers said it was a ‘news article’—Reuters’ term for its regular excretion of Leftist propaganda.”
(...)
A more despicable propaganda piece you’d be hard-pressed to find, which is why Reuters deserves its handle of Al Reutzeera.
