Al Jazeera English breaks through in New York

Al Jazeera English, the Qatar-based news station that has been lauded for its coverage of the Middle East’s recent political upheavals but remains controversial in this country, is now available in the New York City market, according to the New York Times. The news network has struggled to establish a foothold in the U.S., but is now subletting cable space from RISE, a suburban New York channel, and will simulcast 23 hours of programming each day. (Al Jazeera English already has a similar business relationship with another cable channel in the Washington, D.C. market.)

    I imagine Al Jazeera is middle eastern propoganda network much like Fox News is a republican propoganda network. I watch Fox News occasionally to see their takes on certain issues so I would probably watch Al Jazeera for the same reason.

      I imagine Al Jazeera is a middle eastern propoganda network much like MSNBC is a democrat propoganda network.

      It’s heavily biased for Qatar news but surprisingly sane on anything else. It’s one of the few major news stations that actually focus on news, and their coverage of things like the Arab uprising has been nothing short of fantastic.

    What, we don’t get enough one sided news from our own news programs that we need to hear theirs?

    Wow, never thought I’d see EW stoop so low as to support a PRO-Terrorist news channel. Tells you all you really need to know about the people working at EW.

    Great article. I caní»t wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.

    Al Jazeera’s coverage of world events is unsurpassed. The major US Networks should take note, quit running entertainment fluff and let Americans know what is going on in every corner of the world.
