today I noticed that al jazeera english is showing a decent piece on bitcoin in its regular news show, so right in the prime position not some extra show.

cant find a video so far but the piece is being repeated every hour now, ive already seen it twice today Smiley

i think its pretty cool they try to report on this in a rational manner, not like the US media does.

How crazy is it that the best / non-biased cabal news sources for the US is from Al Jazeera and Russia Times?  

It's fun being an American.  We are literally treated like mushrooms ~ kept in the dark and fed a steady diet of shite.

It's because Al Jazeera English is NOTHING like the original Al Jazeera. It's actually run by a highly respected Canadian with tons of journalism experience. What you as Americans should be up in arms about is the fact that you can't access it... In the land of the free :-)

Thanks.  That 2nd post YouTube is from The Stream.   It's cool....   But that is NOT the one I was referring to.

I am referring to the main broadcast segment on Al Jazeera English....  Not the one from The Stream.

Anyone record that one?

I've found AJ(E) and RT to be extremely objective and unbiased compared to other media outlets... they have reported on Anonymous several times before, and were always very accurate in the details, properly researching their things, not going with the usual 'all Anonymous does is LOIC' sentiment and also digging deeper about 'behind the scenes' thing that were going on.

In fact, Russia Today went even further: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZZVETrrS9M

I can attest that Al Jazeera English is truly excellent. I had access to them while living in Dubai and I was amazed how much more in-depth and interesting their topics were than CNN/Fox/MSNBC/Etc. Now that I'm back in the states, the moment it's available in my area I'll sign up.

You can actually watch their stream online in various places. http://www.livestation.com/ has an OK stream, http://www.youtube.com/aljazeeraenglish has a better stream (at one point they actually had a 780p stream).

EDIT: On the YouTube page you have to scroll down a bit to see it.

Heh, I remember their own site having serious issues in coping with high loads. During the revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, YouTube was the only seriously reliable stream. Livestation usually worked well but not always, and the stream on their own site was dead 90% of the time.
