Al-Jazeera less anti-American than CNN and BBC?

Roger Simon is currently traveling in Europe and found himself in a hotel where the only English-language news available came from al-Jazeera. Here's some of what he has to say about it (Hat Tip: Instapundit).
I expected the worst, of course, but was soon astonished. Except for those stories when the “I”-word was prominent (you know, that little country south of Lebanon), Al Jazeera was clearly better, more honest, more informative and more entertaining than CNN International or the BBC. And kinder to the US. In fact, it wasn’t even close. Also, since much of the news they reported was coming from the Middle East, they seemed better informed about such things as the death of the Iraqi Shiite leader Hakim (they referred to Saddam Hussein flatly as a fascist, something you rarely hear on CNN) and the Al Qaeda suicide bombing in Saudi Arabia (they had nothing but withering contempt for Al Qaeda – no pussy-footing “insurgent” rhetoric for them).
I'm curious just how much worse they are on Israel the Zionist entity. I suspect that they're not too much worse than CNN or al-Beeb. At least when one watches al-Jazeera talking about Israel, unless one is totally clueless, one knows to take their 'news reports' with a grain of salt.

don't forget that barak hussein obama is considered a muslim among the islamic world, and has identified the us as "the greatest muslim nation." they consider it just a matter of time, perhaps two generations, that the constitution will be dead the quran shall govern the us.
