While unsuspecting societies were fighting Same Sex Marriage in the West, vowing ‘til’ death do us part’, the far left and Islam had run off and eloped.
The far left and its compliant mainstream media contingent reached out a hand to bring Al Jazeera all the way from Doha, Qatar headquarters into American front rooms—starting this afternoon.
Al Jazeera America begins broadcasting today. The network once called ‘Osama bin Laden’s network’ is being sold to American masses as “14 hours of straight news everyday, hard-hitting documentaries, correspondences in oft-overlooked corners of the country. And fewer commercials than any other news channel.” (New York Times, August 18, 2013)
The ‘bin Laden network’ is not a far stretch from an Obama one, and many wonder how long it will take Obama to replace his late night show appearances with Al Jazeera.
In hard economic times, Al Jazeera is launching with a staff of 900, including 400 newsroom employees.
They’re making it sound virtuous that they only devote six minutes per hour for commercials:
“It has cast its lower commercial load—about six minutes an hour, compared with more than 15 minutes an hour on another (sic) news channels—as a perk for viewers. “Not cluttering the news with commercials,” Mr. Al Shihabi said after a studio tour in New York on Thursday. (NYT)
“It sounds like something a journalism professor would imagine. In actuality, it is Al Jazeera America, the culmination of a long-held dream among the leaders of Qatar, the Middle Eastern emirate that already reaches most of the rest of the world with its Arabic-and-English news channels. The new channel, created specifically for consumers in the United States, will join cable and satellite lineups on Tuesday afternoon.
“Al Jazeera acquired Current TV for $500 million in January to start an American channel, after trying unsuccessfully for years to win cable and satellite carriage for its English-language international news channel.”
Thank you, Al Gore.
Thank God cable/satellite licenses don’t allow live streaming of its programs on the Internet.
Now that the Egyptian government closed Al Jazeera after 22 staffers quit in disgust over its pro-Muslim Brotherhood bias, you can safely count on Al Jazeera America’s first broadcast bucking up the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
“For the past three days, Egypt’s three state television channels have broadcast under a banner in English reading “Egypt fighting terrorism”. (AFP, Aug. 20, 2013)
“They report around the clock on the latest clashes between Morsi supporters and security forces that have claimed nearly 900 lives since Wednesday.
“Between broadcasts, patriotic songs play over footage of the armed forces carrying out military exercises and showing kindness to civilians.
“A piece entitled “The Black History of the Brotherhood Organisation” purports to show the group’s violent history.
“It includes archive footage of Brotherhood members, as well as the attempted murder of president Gamal Abdul Nasser and the assassination of president Anwar Sadat by Islamists.”
Who ever would have thought back in 2008 when the Mainstream Media jumped into the tank with Obama that Egypt would kick al Jazeera out of Cairo and the U. S. would welcome it with open arms?
The list of media personalities who have thrown in their lot with the Arab network includes John Siegenthaler, David Shuster, Soledad O’Brien, Antonio Mora, Joie Chen, Michael Viqueira and Ali Velshi.
But al Jazeera’s triumphant march into American homes really got its start from former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) editor in chief Tony Burman, who, in taking on a top post at news network Al Jazeera English, worked to expand “Al-Jazeera’s vast audience reach into important new areas of the world, most notably North America. (Canada Free Press, May 16, 2008)
“In October 2007, Burman received the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television’s Gordon Sinclair Award for lifetime achievement in broadcast journalism. In October 2009, Arabian Business magazine named him the second most influential non-Arab in the Arab world. Then, in November 2009, the Canadian Expat Association also announced that he had been voted the third most influential Canadian living abroad, behind Michael J. Fox and Wayne Gretzky. (Wikipedia)
Al Jazeera launched in Canada in 2010 and is watched over Bell TV, Rogers and Vidéotron.
Meanwhile, the shameful marriage of Islam to the far left has produced a monster child: a full-steam-ahead propaganda monster called Al Jazeera TV in the front rooms of America.Judi McLeod -- Bio and Archives | Click to view Comments
