    The only thing I want to see regarding these profoundly repulsive neanderthals is footage of drones blowing them up!

    Today's show was great but I always want more. One question mark lingers about this segment and the one with the documentary filmmaker who commented on the ISIS movie trailer of coming attractions: it would be interesting to know how Al Jazeera is handling coverage of ISIS propaganda–and ISIS in general. And not just Al Jazeera USA but what it is broadcasting into Arab nations. Your coverage of not just news but propaganda is very important. And is there a counter propaganda effort? Thanks, see you next week.
