    Rumor is al jazeera will disban all programming on current tv probably within 3 months. Too bad. I like watching Stephanie Miller in the morning.

    And what answers is that? Please share those answers with us all, because I doubt anyone but you see any answers about their programming (on which channel?)..



    cause no one wanted it?

    But for the record... Al Jazeera is much much more than 2 news channels. It has movie channels.. 10+ sports channels, children channels, entertainment channels. It carries HBO, Fox News (yes funny I know), Discovery and so on their pay satellite platform and even has a football club. It is in fact a very large media organisation.....snip~

    I was going with what YOU had shown, with some of that Programming. Not to difficult to figure that out.....huh? Which says nothing else of whatever Qatar and the Saud wants to put on there.

    Yeah.....any propaganda about the west will have to be monitored for. "So what", they buy movies and TV shows from the West. They also produce their own. They also Get plenty of Movies out of India as well.

    Are you sure that no one that was an American didn't want that Station?

    Well, so far you haven't presented us with any evidence of anti-West propaganda put out by AJ, you've just accused them of actions taken by completely different broadcasters. You said this...
    Did you forget some of their Programming? Recall the Mickey Mouse scenarios that were being ran.

    ...and when it was pointed out to you that that had nothing to do with AJ, you said this...
    I am not looking at the Specific of the Mickey mouse program

    You think we're stupid. You make a specific claim and then deny having made it. You haven't provided any evidence of that anti-West propaganda, but you just pussyfoot around saying what you want to say, which is "I don't want to allow any TV channel to be owned by Arabs".

    Okay anyone got a code book for what he wrote here.. because I dont understand one bit of it.

    You imply that their programming is anti-Western.. read anti-US and yet can prove it.. and then you come with a "programming" comment that makes no sense.

    Are you sure that no one that was an American didn't want that Station?
    Nope, but I believe Current TV has been for sale for a while.. so guessing no one wanted it.

    Have you even read any Al Jazeera news from the site or are you just going off talking points from some idiot conservatives that can't think for themselves.

    The news actually isn't that bad and in many cases mirrors fox news in many regards. And I don't mean the commentary fox news, but the actual news.

    AL JAZEERA TV: Arabic News Satellite Channel

    With programming focusing primarily on news coverage and analysis, the station has earned the loyalty of a large audience. It has also earned the enmity of various critics who argue that Al Jazeera is overly sensational, with a bent on showing bloody footage from war zones. Criticism from varied governments has helped the channel garner credibility from an audience that is used to government imposed censorship and biased coverage... Read more in the History Page.

    Programs on Al Jazeera are devoted to various topics of relevance to the pan-Arabic audience. While the programs offered mainly focus on global news and events of the day, they also offer an assortment of programs covering a range of topics.

    While programs of political debates and discussions tend to be the most popular, other shows covering topics such as sports news and hi-lights, as well as the latest entertainment and celebrity gossip, coverage of the fashion world, and the latest innovations in science and health have their share of the audience. Interactive programming that involve audience participation is also highly popular since this type of show is considered ground breaking in that region of the world....snip~

    Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya’s biased coverage!

    In his recent article in Foreign Policy magazine, Sultan al-Qassemi criticized the Arabic-language news channels Al-Arabiya and Al-Jazeera for their biased coverage of the Syrian conflict. Yet the inaccuracies which are present in al-Qassemi’s numerous analytical examples deserve to be scrutinized.

    The first point al-Qassemi highlights is the channels’ choice to broadcast amateur footage, either sent in by rebel fighters or taken from the internet. He claims that this practice violates professional standards. However, al-Qassemi is well aware that there are throngs of journalists who are seeking to gain entry into Syrian territory in order to broadcast from there, but they are not allowed. The Baathist regime forbids them entry into Syria, in order to commit massacres against innocent people under the guise of silence and obfuscation.....snip~

    Media bias - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Al Jazeera is frequently criticized both in the West and in the Arab world.

    Al-Jazeera - Everything2.com

    Al-Jazeera focuses not on re-broadcasting western programming, but on producing its own programming typically focusing on issues important to the Arab and Islamic world. Al-Jazeera's programming is often controversial, and has prompted over 400 complaints to the government of Qatar from various Arab states over the last half decade.

    Al-Jazeera has not made that transition - in fact, the Qatari government has been spending around 100 million USD each year to sustain the station, which has been unable to attract enough advertisers. Although the market for satellite television advertising in Arab world is estimated to exceed 500 million USD annually, most of it is spent by multinational corporations which are reluctant to risk alienating governments in the region.

    Al Jazeera has also come under criticism from the US for a variety of reasons. They were given exclusive footage such as Osama Bin Laden's videotaped statements delivered to their network. The footage that the BBC and CNN display of him, with a microphone and a white cap standing in front of a cave is from a tape delivered to Al Jazeera from an Al Qaeda member. The US protested that they were giving him a soapbox by airing it in its entirety.

    This is seen as rather unusual by many, because Al Jazeera is routinely demonized in America as "Jihad TV" or accused them of actively supporting the Iraqi insurgency. The US has spent over $60 million to launch their own Middle-Eastern Television Network, Al Hurra, so that they can counteract Al Jazeera's message and build up the USA's public image in the Middle East.....snip~


    You were sayin something about not having any proof? No See unlike you I don't put up anything thinking others are stupid or that I am trying to trick them into believing anything. I figure most are adults and can make up their own minds about what is said.

    I think you forgot to go back and paste where I stated others have said that Al Jazeera is Biased, or did you forget that part intentionally while you were trying to think for me and what you thought I was doing. Let me know when YOU THINK you can read my thoughts with your version of a Crystal ball as I want to make sure which crack you were looking thru.

    You need a code book for what you yourself put up with what you showed they had as part of their programming? So are you saying you were confused with what I was pointing out that you had said?

    I also Implied others have said it the same. But for some reason you doubted that there were any OPs over it. Read English much?
