Al Jazeera America, which launched last August with nearly 850 employees and 12 news bureaus in the United States, has laid off dozens of employees as part of restructuring. The channel is disbanding its sports unit and scaling back its social-media-driven show The Stream from a daily show to a once-a-week program.

“The channel is disbanding its sports unit...”
Oh.... how COULD THEY!!?
no.. more..... what.........camel races?
seriously what does al jazeera have to DO with SPORTS?
I’m going to get flamed for this, maybe, but here goes: the channel is really not that bad.
When I first watched it, I was completely stunned. Real news. They provide real news and serious coverage. It’s actual reporting instead of an attempt at entertainment, as the other cable news channels fall into. If you don’t believe me, just watch it for a day, then flip back over to CNN’s plane coverage or Fox News with O’Reilly yelling at some guest, and you’ll immediately know what I am talking about.
they thought they had something to do with sports. now they know they don’t
Don’t they still have goat ropes? Did I spell that right?
keep watching, keep watching, keep watching.
the change does not come all at once
I noticed the same thing. They actually had very good reporting at times. But alas . . no I cannot. Us infidels have to hang together or we will surely hang separately.
I have never tuned it in but have been seeing ads all day about a 4 parter they are doing titled “Borderland”, with the ‘lead’ being “6 Americans trace the paths of migrants who DIED trying to cross the border”.
I didn’t realize they had Comedy shows or at least shows with a ‘Happy Ending’.....
All my friends wanted to hear news with a different perspective....
To bad, So Sad, Buh Bye...
I have not watched, and probably won’t because I just have tuned all the cable news networks. I have heard it actually is news vs. the constant focus of the other networks purely on creating the division and the ‘soap opera’ and Rush calls it.
While I don’t doubt it is a better format, I am seriously skeptical it is going to share a balanced view of US or internal events. What have you seen so far?
Its all good. :-)
The Jew’s fault.
Amazing how algore made $200 million on this scam?
Pray America wakes up
More well-qualified people to work in the DNC stenography pool!
I’m gonna admit I watched it too, when it first aired.
I thought the coverage was fair but, other programing made me just ignore the thing, as it will become what Saud wants eventually...
+1 even if you ain’t right in the head...
It has no viewers
