    Former CNN host Soledad O’Brien will be joining Al Jazeera America as a special correspondent, the Qatari-owned station revealed Monday morning.

    She will be producing documentary specials and contributing to the network’s prime time show “America Tonight.”
    “I look forward to beginning a relationship with Al Jazeera America, which has made a commitment to producing quality programming and pursuing underreported stories,” O’Brien said in a statement....
    That's probably a better fit for her.

    I imagine it's only a time before she moves to the Middle East's Al Jazeera network.

    Not much of a change for her.

    I a not a fan of Al Jazzera, a big anti-American propaganda outfit funded by American gasoline consumption, but interestingly its seen as way more mainstream in Western Europe and the English speaking world outside of the US than in America. Some even think its less radical than Fox News Channel, which is also co-owned by Middle Eastern oil sheiks. I think a big part of it is they operate two entirely different channels; the Arab language service that is used to drum up anti-Americanism in the Middle East and their toned down English speaking channel that is big in Europe, Canada and trying to make inroads into America most notably with the acquisition of Al Gore's Current TV. Our hard earned money funding the propaganda we dislike...but after all we've been conditioned to think we don't have the ingenuity to do any better and/or freeing ourselves from enslavement to the Middle East by ending the oligopoly of petroleum based transportation is communism so I guess we have no other choice.

    Soledad's Morning Show was canceled in March due to low ratings and she has her own production company behind her specials. I suspect CNN with new management is going in a different, more familiar middle position than their overtly liberal commentary, which has not been good for ratings. Especially since all of the scandals have recently erupted with this administration.

    Even if they do go middle of the road, the hard right will complain when they criticize a Republican.

    Maybe so but I believe the extremes are the minority and that there are more viewers who want JUST the information and to form their own opinions. The problem with offering only one side of the debate is it gives you no context or reasoning.

    Al Jezeera is a superior news organization. Much more informed views and in depth reporting of the world outside the US than any American network, rivaled only by the BBC. It's coverage of the middle east is clearly superior to the BBC in fact.
