Why Is the Biden White House Defending Al Jazeera?

During Monday's daily briefing with reporters, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre defended Qatari owned Al Jazeera. She did this despite evidence "reporters" for the "news" organization participated in the October 7 massacre and deliberately make up stories to inflame the Arab world against Israel.

On Monday night Israel banned the organization from operating inside the country, prompting Al Jazeera to release a defensive statement. 

"In an escalating move, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu launched a frantic campaign against Al Jazeera, accusing it of harming Israel’s security, actively participating in the October 7 attack, and inciting against Israeli soldiers. Al Jazeera Media Network condemns these statements and sees as nothing but a dangerous ludicrous lie," the organization released in a statement. "The network stresses that this latest measure comes as part of a series of systematic Israeli attacks to silence Al Jazeera, including the assassination of its correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh, the killing of its journalists Samer AbuDaqqa and Hamza AlDahdouh, the bombing of its office in Gaza, the deliberate targeting of a number of Al Jazeera journalists and their family members, and the arrest and intimidation of its correspondents in the field."

Last week the network published a fake story claiming Israeli soldiers were raping women inside a Gaza hospital. It wasn't true and was deleted. 

In the past, the United States has heavily scrutinized foreign media organizations for ties to terrorism -- including implementing sanctions against them.
