A New York state assemblyman and Marine Corps veteran is calling on Verizon, Comcast, DirecTV and Dish Network to drop "the notoriously anti-American, anti-Semitic and misogynistic" Al Jazeera network from their basic cable package.
Among the 140 participants at the Bilderberg Conference that begins Thursday in the spectacular Grove Hotel, some 20 miles northwest of London: American Enterprise Institute fellow Richard Perle, former CIA Director David H. Petraeus, former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, former Treasury secretaries Timothy F. Geithner and Robert Rubin, Washington Post CEO Donald Graham, Stratfor geopolitical analyst Robert Kaplan, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and The Economist Editor-in-Chief John Micklethwait.
Mr. Lalor, who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, said he's outraged "to have this propaganda piped into my home."
"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.
