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 :-)
You must be kidding? Why can't Americans access the only viewable English language 24 hour news channel? I find it hard to believe that Al Jazeera leaves America out?
CNN and the like is just commercials interrupted by weather reports and short, shallow and totally uninteresting news headlines. Al Jazeera has real content most of the time, gets the news out faster and goes more in depth. Al Jazeera has an amazing ability to be where the news happens when it happens (I often wonder if they are psychic), and the story is over before the other channels gets there and pretend it's news. During the Israeli attack on Gaza, Al Jazeera were the only media in the war zone, etc. And they are less biased than most other media. Not speculating or having biased people analyse things to much, and instead telling and showing what is really happening. Al Jazeera is the best 24 hour news channel ever. Far better than all competition. Americans should demand that Al Jazeera start transmitting to North America.
