Al Jazeera joins ROB-TV in exposing the gold price suppression scheme


8:45p ET Tuesday, December 12, 2006

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Al Jazeera, the international news organization based in Qatar and owned by the emir of that Arabian Gulf country (an ally of the United States recently visited by your secretary/treasurer in another capacity), has just joined Canada's Report on Business Television in what might as well be called Radio (and Television) Free America.

Al Jazeera's English-language service, which was started a few months ago to bring to the West a long-neglected Middle Eastern perspective on the news, has just broadcast a rollicking 10-minute analysis about gold and the dollar. It is called "Death of the Dollar" and is part of Al Jazeera's "People and Power" investigative program. Among other things, the segment:

-- Examines the gold price suppression scheme of the Western central banks.

-- Interviews GATA Chairman Bill Murphy and GATA consultant James Turk, founder of GoldMoney and editor of the Freemarket Gold & Money Report.

-- And cites the report vindicating GATA by the Cheuvreux brokerage house of the French bank Credit Agricole, the rigging of the U.S. Consumer Price Index, and the Federal Reserve's discontinuation of the M3 money supply figures to conceal the explosion of the U.S. money supply.

The segment is introduced by Shereen El Feki, host of "People and Power," and is written and narrated by Max Kaiser, formerly a broker on Wall Street and now, it seems, a talented international troublemaker.

We haven't been able to locate a direct link for the program at Al Jazeera's Internet site but the program has been copied at YouTube here:

The video reproduction at YouTube isn't great but the audio is fine and you won't miss anything even as you may want to watch the program two or three times out of amazement. It's the sort of TV news analysis you'd expect to see in a free country -- or one whose news media weren't dominated by financial interests.

Media technology is liberating the developing world. Thanks to ROB-TV and Al Jazeera, it just might help liberate the developed world as well.
