Al-Jazeera can be streamed in for free online. It's excellent.

What a shocker! Al-Jazeera holds the same anti-American views as Gore, Obama, Biden, Ellison, Franken, and Klobachar. That should give them a full line up for programming.

"Al-Jazeera has long struggled to get carriage in the U.S., and the deal suffered an immediate casualty as Time Warner Cable Inc., the nation's second-largest cable TV operator, announced it is dropping Current TV due to the deal."

The corporate conglomerates will do what it takes to maintain their dominance of information. Al-Jazeera is a threat to their strategy to dumb America down.

@arielbender: Did you skip over this part of the article?: "Dave Marash, a former "Nightline" reporter who worked for Al-Jazeera in Washington, said he left the network in 2008 in part because he sensed an anti-American bias there".............Now David Marash could hardly be confused with a right-wing nutcase.

Whatever happened to down-the-middle straight news reporting that doesn't have an ideological spin? I can't stand Fox News (Sean Hannity is a windbag). I can't stand MSNBC (I truly believe Chris Matthew has lost his mind). I enjoy Wolf Blitzer, but unfortunately, it seems like most viewers choose to watch only the extremes and stay away from ojbective reporting.
