Al Jazeera acquisition to 'compete with CNN and BBC'
BBC ^ | 1/05/13

Posted on 01/05/2013 2:46:08 PM PST by Libloather

She compares the US to Qatar: "Al Jazeera doesn't generate revenue now anyway, it is a cost to the Qatari government, it's not a commercial decision, it's a very long term decision from an oil rich state."

She continues: "Al Jazeera wishes to compete with CNN and the BBC...it presents a different perspective on the Arab Israeli conflict."

So Al Jazerra will present a more conservative view than CNN, the BBC and MSNBC?

I was right when I said turner is dropping gore’s channel because it would compete with CNN and viewers would be leaving it for a newer format.

Fios had aljazeera channel for a long time now.

What normal American, other than Muslim terrorists and terrorist sympathizers (All of them...), would ever watch Al-Jazeera?

If someone I knew told me they did I would never speak to them again, for I would know I’m dealing with someone seriously disturbed.

WOW, just wow.

How will lefties ‘feel’ when Al Jazeera :

1) Has news segments supporting Islam against Homosexuality.
2) Reports on the benefits of Koran supported wife beatings.
3) Celebrates the diversity of Ethnic cleansing in Sudan.
4) Airs LIVE honor killings of young girls who dared to date outside of Islam.
5) Regularly declares that separation of Church(mosque) and state does not apply to Islam...

Does Al Jazeera have a discriminatory policy towards hiring observant Jews?

If Pravda could take over CNN, it would result in an improvement in truthfulness.

I would say this...at best on a normal day...there’s probably only 50k people in the US who view Al Jazeera. A quarter of that group are probably people associated with the US intelligence community, which makes the viewership an even bigger joke.
