Saddam Hussein Had Al-Jazeera TV On Payroll

From Sotaliraq, via Memri:

Saddam Regime Provided Funding To Al-Jazeera TV

A recently surfaced letter dated September 24, 2002 refers to a decision by the Iraqi Council of Ministers under Saddam authorizing the Ministry of Culture and Information to make a monthly payment of €50,000 to Al-Jazeera TV.

How much was he giving CNN?

By the way, €50,000 is only $67,700 at the current rate of exchange.

So Al-Jazeera sold itself pretty cheap.
