We Are Getting A New Channel


Heard someone on the radio host ranting about this story this morning (fake laughing with a "I thought this was a joke!!!" diatribe) followed by crazy right wing callers saying that America will be infiltrated with a message from those who want to kill us.

Hey, goofballs. Al-Jazeera is owned by the country of Qatar which may be the most progressive (and richest) country in the Middle East. Now that may not be saying much, but it understands that it is surrounded by instability and has been a generous host to the U.S. Military. Hillary Clinton has said this about Al-Jazeera: "Viewership of Al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it's real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you're getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners."

I think it'll be interesting to get a different perspective.
