Fox Sure Isn't Shy About Itself

From its Web site:
Foxnews.com online has come a long way since it was launched in November 1996.
 
Today the channel that sent shockwaves through the whole world from its very first day on air has become a global name which people, governments, and decision-makers cannot afford to ignore.
 
With more than 30 bureaus and dozens of correspondents covering the four corners of the world Foxnews.com has given millions of people a refreshing new perspective on global events.
 
... Foxnews.com has offered its audiences in the world much needed freedom of thought, independence, and room for debate. In the rest of the world, often dominated by the stereotypical thinking of previous news “heavyweights”, Foxnews.com offers a different and a new perspective.
 
Fox News correspondents opened a window for the world on the millennium’s first two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Our expanded coverage competed with and sometimes outperformed our competitors bringing into the spotlight the war’s devastating impact on the lives of ordinary people. 
 
We continue to cover all viewpoints with objectivity integrity and balance.
 
So now when Fox News speaks, the world listens and “reads”.
 
In January 2001, Foxnews.com was launched as the first mainstream news site in Arabic and in no time, it rose to the top.  In 2002, Foxnews.com received more than 811 million impressions and 161 million visits.
 
Boiling topics and heated debates along with objective news reporting and interactive feedback are the attributes that put Foxnews.com amongst the 50 most visited sites worldwide.
 
EMBRACING NEW HORIZONS
 
As we officially broke the “language barrier” with Foxnews.com Arabic, our dream of bringing “people and continents together” is coming true. A new window of opportunity to see the world through is now opening.
 
We go behind the scenes to provide every visitor with “the news they don’t see”, daringly and boldly as Fox always does. 
 
The website promises to raise traditionally sidelined questions and issues. It upholds the same philosophy of the mother organization, Fox News Television: “The right to speak up”.  This translates into allowing everyone a chanc to express their opinion freely, encouraging debates, viewpoints and counter viewpoints.
 
Foxnews.com has been designed to attract readers from continents poles-apart. Not only do we offer a versatile content of news and information, but it also aims to be more interactive. 
 
Our ultimate goal is to set up a more proactive relationship with our audience, where the audience is not simply a visitor at the other end of the line. They are and they will always be an integral part of the news reporting and news-making process.
 
Our team of dedicated journalists with their multi-national education and diversified backgrounds share a common set of attributes: objectivity, accuracy, and a passion for truth.
 
Truth will be the force that will drive us to raise thorny issues, to seize every opportunity for exclusive reporting, to take hold of unforgettable moments in history and to rekindle the willpower within every human being who strives for truth.

That's the guys at Fox for you. Wait, did I say Fox? Silly me. I meant
AlJazeera.net.

I just manipulated and changed a few things to suit my purposes. It's a new skill. Wonder where I learned it?
