FWIW, probably like most of you, I was very disturbed to see Al Jaheera broadcasting out of its very own network right here in the USA.
And to think, the FCC wants to get its controlling little mitts all over the internet. Makes a guy feel downright warm and fuzzy all over, doesn’t it?
Err America died several years ago, HuffPost Live was stillborn, ***MesS***NBC is a ratings zombie, and Al Jazeera America’s euthanization has been scheduled … looks like there’s not much of a market in the US for America-bashing.
BTW, His Corpulency Ed Schultz, cancelled last July by ***MesS***NBC, is moving to Russia Today.
All I know was I saw it when I was flipping through channels looking for something to watch. I did not bother to look at the station and remembered it because it pissed me off. Everytime I turn around AT&T wants to jack my rates.
Can’t think of what, specifically, at the moment, but I’ve seen AT&T promote some things that I’ve taken a very dim view of.
But you didn’t answer my question. Was AT&T promoting the Al Jazeera network, or PBS? It wouldn’t surprise me if it was both, but which one are you referring to?
Like you, I only saw the Al Jazeera station while channel surfing. And, like you, was taken aback and kept on going. It might serve us well to learn just who their promoters are. (Tough as it will be to click on that channel. Ugh.) Sure, that network will soon be gone, but their promoters won’t be.
*Thankfully, I don’t have to deal w/AT&T. Don’t you have a choice?
