Jon Ossoff responds to Al Jazeera link

on March 15 | in The Top Spot | by | with No Comments

On Monday, Congressional candidate Bob Gray launched an attack at Democrat Jon Ossoff over business ties with ‘anti-American’ Al Jazeera.

Reusing footage of Ossoff in a Star Wars costume, the web ad briefly declared that the Democrat front runner was linked to the Qatari-owned network.

“He lied about his national security resume. He even worked for Al Jazeera,” the video states.

Here’s the statement Ossoff’s campaign provided to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“Jon Ossoff’s company has produced films and video content for multiple clients and news organizations around the world, including Al Jazeera, since Jon became its CEO in 2013. In the last six months, the company’s productions have appeared on or have been acquired by the BBC (UK), RTL (Netherlands), DR (Denmark), TVN (Poland), SVT (Sweden), and TIM (Italy), in addition to Al Jazeera (Qatar). Under Jon’s leadership, the company’s investigations have resulted in the arrest of foreign officials stealing U.S.-taxpayer-funded aid and quack doctors who mutilate women, as well as exposed atrocities committed by ISIS in Iraq, including sexual slavery. Founded in 1991, the company has produced documentaries for dozens of international broadcast clients and was on the team that produced the Oscar-nominated film “Blood Diamond”. Its productions for CNN have won two Emmy Awards. Jon condemns partisan attacks that appeal to fear and stands by his work as a journalist and businessman.”
