    Welcome Al Jazeera America!

    Al Jazeera America is now on-line and on TV (although availability may be limited).

    I welcome another voice, especially one that may initially be outside America's main stream media.

    If they eschew coverage of fads of the day and celebrity pregnancies so much the better.

    Re: Welcome Al Jazeera America!

    This is alleged to be an Al Jazeera report on a United States Congress man from the perspective of a Montana sheep rancher:

    A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

    The driver, a young man in a Brioni® suit, Gucci® shoes, RayBan® sunglasses and YSL® tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"


    Bud looks at the man, who obviously is a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"

    The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell® notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3® cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

    The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop® and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany ...

    Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot® that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL®database through an ODBC connected Excel® spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry® and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

    Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet® printer, turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

    "That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bud.

    He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.

    Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"

    The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"

    "You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government", says Bud.

    "Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"

    "No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep.

    Now give me back my dog.

    Now that's accuracy in reporting.

    Thank God they have arrived. Perhaps the US viewers will now have a different window into the rest of the world.

    I expect though, that it will only be moments before the Talibangelicals, racists, anti-Islamists and reactionary right wingers are screaming bloody murder.

    We'll see.

    Re: Welcome Al Jazeera America!

    From what I've seen over here, Al Jazeera seem to be pretty good with high calibre journalists and they are willing to devote time to far more stories and give a much broader view of the Middle East (in particular).
    A welcome contrast from the often narrow viewpoint much of the western media gives.

    And they may actually have more NEWS than on any of Fox, MSNBC, CNN, Headline News. In prime time, NONE of these are doing "real news" though Fox and MSNBC are probably a little closer to having some news (and, indeed, particularly MSNBC covers a lot of current stuff, though from a political perspective with their spin). Other places running endless reruns of the likes of Nancy Grace aren't even TRYING.

    My encounters with al-Jazeera, I've generally found them to be more balanced than any of the US news channels.

    And fewer commercial interruptions …


    [The cable news channel Al Jazeera America] has limited ads to just six minutes of commercials an hour. Many rival channels run closer to 20. [npr]

    Fewer commercial minutes until they build an audience, which appears to be encountering some delays. Unfortunately since TWC and Uverse said fuck you to their offer of the two distributors offering their network for peanuts, the half of America with those providers wont see a thing. (Including me) and I was looking forward to the challenge of identifying what kind of slant they put on things.

    The thing is, most North Americans don't want real news any more. They want opinions. They want talking heads to tell them when they should be angry or happy about something.

    I'd venture that there are also a large number who just don't care, who think the world is basically screwed because of politicians and the wealthy and just want to live their lives.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    We here in Greece have more than our fair share of cynics when we consider the mess that our own political elite have made.

    And yet you still bash FOX and praise Al Jazeera even though it represents a religion that would execute you if you lived in their culture.

    Al Jazeera America is independent of the Middle Eastern operation; it is New York based; it is "Western" staffed. It doesn't editorially give a flying fuck about homosexuality, pro or con,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Jazeera

    I quote:

    Editorial independence

    Al Jazeera claims that it is editorially independent,[133][134] though much of its funding comes from the Qatar government. In 2010, United States Department of State internal communications, released by WikiLeaks as part of the 2010 diplomatic cables leak, claim that the Qatar government manipulates Al Jazeera coverage to suit political interests.[135][136]

    In September 2012, The Guardian reported that Al Jazeera's editorial independence came into question when the channel's director of news, Salah Negm, stepped in at the last minute to order that a two minute video covering a UN debate over the Syrian civil war include a speech by the leader of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani.[3] Staff members protested that the speech was not the most important aspect of the debate, and that it was a repetition of previous calls for Arab intervention.[3]

    The Guardian also claimed in September 2012 that Qatar has taken steps in recent years to consolidate control of Al Jazeera English.[

    Providing one is subtle, wise, and very private gay sex can be easily "practised" in Muslim countries...I know, from personal experience that men in Muslim countries are driven to homosexual sexual practices because of the restraints placed on women to not engage in sexual relations outside marriage, before marriage, or participate in extramarital affairs.

    It always seemed a little improbable that Arab sheiks could save American journalism. But in a business as troubled as the vast wasteland of American television news, hope springs eternal, and the Al Jazeera network out of Qatar seemed to offer an opulent oasis. In January, with great fanfare, it acquired the floundering Current TV network from Al Gore and his partners for some $500 million. Then it announced it would replace Current with a new Al Jazeera America network (in addition to its global Al Jazeera Arabic and Al Jazeera English networks), and hire about 800 people in the States. More than 22,000 applied. Headhunting for top executives goes on.

    First announced in January of 2013 and launched on August 20th, (ed. 2013) Al Jazeera America has one of the largest newsgathering capabilities of any news organization in the United States with 12 bureaus in major cities around the country, 3 broadcast centers, a headquarters in New York City and a team of close to 800 journalists and staff.

    They would whack me if I was straight too because their religion, along with the other big 2 western religions are bullshit. Christianity used to knock ya off to if you were a heretic and non-believer, hell even if you were a which in the USA. Nothing like a date with the Iron Maiden until your eyes pop out. Good `ole Church of England used to burn Homos alive under piles of sticks called "fags". (and you thought a fag was a cigarette).

    Muslims are just a little slower overall in getting modern with the other 21st century troglodytes.

    Wait a minute are we talking about a TV network knocking you off or a religion? I'm confused.

    In a way it illustrates how much Americans have normalized the concept that news channels are simply propaganda streams when they assume all foreign ones are a one-trick ponyshow of some foreign culture's propaganda.

    Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is the largest shareholder in FOX NEW Network outside of the Murdochs. Last I checked, they aren't too happy about homos there either.
