Now...I am an aspiring journalist desperate for work...but there isn't enough money in the world that could make me want to work for a network that spews terrorist propaganda. I hope the FCC blocks this, or that all the major cable/satellite outlets refuse to carry it.

My local public TV affiliate has a thing where they broadcast a bunch of news stations from outside the U.S.- I believe BBC World News, NHK (Japan,) and al Jazeera. I don't often watch the latter as it comes on at a time when we're usually watching another channel, but from when I have seen it, I don't seem to recall being exhorted to fight the infidel not even a single time. "Insallahs" were in remarkably short supply as well.

I have seen it a few times and I like what I see. Since they aren't American they don't tow the Democratic Party line, like most of the US TV news shows.

Does anyone watch Current TV? They put out a neat piece about Detroit public schools a few years ago and very few people actually saw it, even in Detroit. I knew plenty of teachers who wanted to watch it, but one of the local cable providers didn't carry the channel. I was able to watch it becuase my parents DVRed it in St. Louis.

I've watched the Al Jazerra live stream a few times and found it refreshing to actually hear news from around the world, not just the US. The channel is owned and funded by the government of Qatar, which is a strong US ally, and Hillary Clinton and John McCain have both praised Al Jazerra for excellent reporting.

I wish them luck, but I don't have much hope seeing how most Americans seem to only be interested in their respective biased news sources. God forbid anyone get a different perspective on global affairs.

That's like saying Fox spreads liberal propaganda because they broadcast Obama's speeches. Broadcasting a speech is not the same as spreading propaganda - if they were coming out in favor of the speeches, then you'd have an argument.

Absurd. Al Qaeda sent them their videos because they are 'local'; I.e, they are not in Atlanta or London. Seems like the logical place to send your propaganda. By that standard, Fox or MSNBC are doing the same.

For one, you are missing out on excellent reporting. The fact that you judge without even bothering to watch is telling.

Also, I highly doubt anyone of Sir David Frost's caliber would work for Al Jazeera if they were terrorists.
