Al Jazeera English Blacked Out Across Most Of U.S.
AJE is streaming coverage live online, but it's overloaded and not always running for me.
There are important things happening in the Arab world, I realize AJ's reputation as anti-Western but for coverage of what's happening on the Arab street surely it can't be so subversive American adults shouldn't be allowed the choice to watch it?
Al Jazeera is not anti-western, it's just more objective and doesn't automatically defer to western interests. There is a difference. I read it online when I want in-depth reporting in that area.
Al Jazeera hadn't any problem staying on the air Thurs, Friday, Saturday-until the government called in the credentials in evening. It was reported by Al Jazeera and they went off air for many hours. Came up late this morning, early afternoon, CST. The video feed is still not where it was, but live blogging is fine, at least so far.
Its coverage of this crisis has been unequaled anywhere else that I've seen.
Why rely on them? For what exactly?
Australian and Saudi Arabian owned Fox news is "anti American".
Do you have pro-western interests? Or anti-western interests.
Most likely you are just another weak-ass commie piece of shit leech...IMHO.
Suck me you asslicking leftist fool.
From what I've seen so far, I agree. And I'd like to have the choice to receive the network, to watch or not watch as I see fit.
They certainly know the Arab street.
I catch parts of AJ on LInk TV Mosaic sometimes. Give facts and a perspective we will never see on regular US media. BBC is the closest but still tainted.
They have live streaming:
