Something on my mind at the moment that makes me angry. The fact that you can't get Al Jazeera in the U.S. I am fortunate to be able to watch this station everyday here in Paris, and in my opinion there is no comparable network for getting un-biased news- especially on the Middle East. I feel motivated to post this due to various friends/family that have visited me from the U.S. who have never heard of this station. And after hearing one comment about it, and I quote, "Al Jazeera, isn't that the name of a terrorist group?" Noooo.
Based in Doha, Qatar, Al Jazeera broadcasts all over the world (except the U.S.), and is definitely where you should be getting your world news from (not FOX news!) Why can't you watch it in the U.S.? Due to Right-Wing conservative effort at keeping it out, although they claim that there is no market for it in the U.S. and that there's no demand for it. I find this hard to believe.
So, if you don't know about Al Jazeera, inform yourself, and choose this as a source of world news first instead of just watching the more American-biased news networks. Luckily for you, you might not be able to watch in the U.S. yet, but you can watch certain programs on their website here: http://english.aljazeera.net/
