Al Jazeera in Guantanamo

A few days ago I caught part of a report, or maybe preview, on FOX concerning how Guantanamo detainees were able to see Al Jazeera TV. Being FOX, it was presented as an outrage. However, if the cable channel Al Jazeera is anything like the website, I’d be more outraged if the detainees were allowed to watch truly anti American networks like MSNBC.

More interestingly, when I tried to perform a little due diligence to confirm my memory on the report, the search engine I used was full of links to stories about how a Guantanamo detainee used his phone privileges to call Al Jazeera. So I have to wonder…

Why didn’t the New York Times Al Queda detainees use their phone privileges to call CNN?
