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.

I buy with EUR and other currencies at a fair market price when you want to sell.  See http://bitmynt.no/eurprice.pl
I support the roadmap.  If a majority of miners ever try to forcefully take control of Bitcoin through a hard fork without 100% consensus, I will immediately split out and dump all my forkcoins, and buy more real Bitcoin.

I believe they literally have reporters all over the world all the time... and offices. I remember how in one of the Arab revolutions (the Tunisian one? not sure) the media office building where their local office was, was actually stormed by police, and they were even reporting that live, and filming a 'riot' from out of their window.

Russia Times is available for free on my Roku box (a common Netflix streaming box).  I swear they used to carry Al Jazeera English as well, but it's not currently available.

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 :-)

It comes in just fine on my set along with RT and whatever else I could want to watch, Granted I have ITV and you certainly wont find these stations offered on any cable package here. So, we are free to watch whatever we want but should be pissed that the providers only offer what is 'acceptable' American shit.






edited for grammar and mispellings

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Agreed, and of course you can also probably access it online... I was talking specifically about the fact that when Al Jazeera English first got started a few years ago, the association of cable broadcasters in the US made a decision not to carry it on any of their lineups. Again, the arguments they used MIGHT have applied to the original channel, in Arabic, but AJE really is a different sort of beast.
