Arab news network Al-Jazeera has purchased Al Gore's cable TV network Current TV, which it plans to turn into Al-Jazeera America. Will you tune in?
What is more biased: free American news or state run Middle East news. I choose american
About the history of the middle east and americas involvement. Don't be ignorant assholes, have the compassion to listen to both sides. Not the "terrorists" but the civilians, we are unfortunate to be caught between unstable governments and foreign armed rebel groups.
All you folks from the mid-west all real slow. Self-Righteous, Self-proclaimed assholes who preach about Jesus but don't even take time to hear what the innocents in other countries have to say, they are struggling too and they don't hate us they hate our government. How many of you have ever read
If I recall correctly the newton guy and aurora guy didn't blow themselves up with a bomb or drive an airplane into a skyscraper. You are comparing apples and oranges.
Is Timothy McVay Muslim? Nope. And many others like him. The problem I that if an American kills numerous people or does a mass shooting, he is called "mental", if the same act was done by a Muslim, he would be a terrorist
Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists seem to be Muslims. Coincidence?
Al-Jazeera is a legitimate news agency. For the haters here, you do know that the largest shareholder of Fox News outside of the Murdock family is a Saudi Prince, right?
THEY SUPPORT TERRORIST STOP
That's a pretty ignorant comment.
Cowboy and his fans obviously haven't actually watched anything from Al Jazeera themselves. They just believe what the their friends/familys/politicians/preachers/spouses/teachers/etc say, withOUT actually making any effort to find out and look for themselves.
I agree too. I don't watch TV news. Every single news channel on tv: NBC, FOX, CNN,etc , every regional and local news station- ALL of them, are either owned by G.E., or Westinghouse- two VERY huge U.S. military contracting companies. they have agendas.
I read BBC world, reuters, Al jazeera.
But it does exist
I watch it already
Here's to hoping they aren't as biased as the current "media," and that goes for both Fox on the right and NBC on the left.
American society had given independence to women and that's absolutely outstanding...unless you're the spawn from one of these women who are so independent they don't even want their own children. Women are absolutely sex objects in American culture and our prison system solidifies that theory.
Hate to break it to ya, but NY Times as well as AP and Washington Post, hell most all the global news outlets in America have contacts within the international intelligence community. It's part of the process of investigative journalism.
Interesting to see all the assumptions, biases, fearmongering, ignorance... Maybe that's why we call the US the LAND of the free and not the Nation of FreeThinkers that apply reasoning and critical thinking. Seems many people would rather confirm and regurgitate their biases than research facts!
@rons...Maybe if you watched Al-Jazeera you would learn how to spell Israel.
I think the goal of the channel would not be to provide programming for American Muslims, but to provide accurate reporting in the Middle East and North Africa.
Ask them if Isreal should exist.
Wait, Current TV wasn't already little Al-Jazeera?
You should look up who the faces behind Fox really are before you consider them to be a reliable source since you wouldn't consider this middle-eastern media corporation to be legitimate. On another note, The Muslims were the first in history to establish the university.
The same ideology coexist with capitalism and Christianity; the devil/middle-eastern terrorists put it there to test your faith! This is a legitimate news organization that the Associated Press receives information from! Open your eyes!
You can count on the fact that at least their segments won't be censored by the financial conglomerates that control all the other ones.
I wouldn't sell my toenail clippings to Glenn Beck if he offered me a billion dollars for them.
Why the hell would anyone want to watch the news on TV?
I read their website along with BBC world news, WSJ, and Reuters. I would only watch cable news if I purposely wanted to waste my time.
If you want a better understanding of what's going onion the middle east they are a good source...it reminds me of NPR or bbc
I agree I've watched it it's very interesting
Guess u r a bit ethnocentric...just a bit
I have watched and read there stuff it's pretty good
Good point. I will never know because I will never tune in. Enjoy it while it lasts because Comcast and Verizon won't carry it soon enough. I encourage you to try a credible news source like CNN or Fox.
...or it is a legitimate news organization. That's also a possibility.
What's the point of watching it? Just to prove that it isn't terrorist oriented. Of course they won't put terrorist shows on, they want Americans to believe that they aren't terrorists when they are. Don't fall for it.
I watched Al-Jazeera this morning. Some of the main stories were: typhoon in the Phillipines, civil unrest in the Central African Republic, and Hurricane Sandy. Not one story supporting terrorists. I can't believe people are so dumb.
Since I am not a terrorist, I won't tune in. Why else would someone tune in?
People need to wake up!
We're loosening our country to greed and very bad politics!
Excellent news channel. Plenty of international news. Time Americans were exposed to the rest of the world, and we all need a different viewpoint from the bias of Fox.
Al gore is an embarrassment to America.
Absolutely not and Al Gore the lunatic tree hugger just showed his hypocrisy by selling to and accepting money from those who support and are completely funded by what he said he is totally against and is destroying our world. Money talks though, doesn't it, Al
I've watched on my phone a few times. Reminds me of BBC News, even with British news anchors on some shows. I never thought they were making up news, anymore then we already have here. I could be wrong...
Al-Jazeera has been linked to Hamas palindrome. There's the proof.
Really???? Are you being sarcastic or serious?? Do you NEVER watch tv? How old are you? If you're a teenager, I'll forgive your ignorance since my 15 year old had to ask what it is, too. But if you're an adult, I hope you don't vote for people in this incredibly ignorant way!!!!!!!!
Nobody watched it before, that's why it was for sale!
Pinky- I already know the answer to this but, do you have ANY proof of this?
Al-Jazeera is the propaganda arm of radical Islam.
And they refused to sell to Glenn Beck because they 'don't see eye to eye politically'. What does this tell you about Al Gore. I think us Tennesseans long ago disowned him.
The Black Panthers and Hamas unite! The enemy of my enemy is my friend, right?
I guess that wasn't on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, or CSPAN.
Especially when Al-Jazeera has been linked with Hamas. Did you know that?
