Al-Jazeera International launching Nov. 15th

by Brett Love, posted Nov 1st 2006 11:05AM
Al JazeeraAfter months of delays the English language Al-Jazeera channel is finally ready to go. Plans call for the new network to broadcast around the clock with 12 hours a day devoted to live news while the other 12 go to interviews, features, and analysis. Like the current Al-Jazeera, the International version will also be headquartered in Doha, Qatar. There will also be newsrooms in London, Washington, and Kuala Lumpur.

The channel's chief competitors will be CNN International and BBC World. As would be expected, Al-Jazeera International will specialize in news from the Middle East and executives promise news with an Arab perspective. No deals have been announced to broadcast the channel in the US, but negotiations are ongoing. The goal for launch is to have the channel available in 30 to 40 million homes worldwide.

Al Jazeera is one Channel who will try to give balanced news, unlike Zionist controlled western media. It is good for all those ignorant rednecks and mutts out there (read mostly Bush's stooges and therefore slaves of Zionist)brought up in a candy & pop culture, ridden in debt, morally bankrupt and languishing in a Zionist controlled populace. Pay attention please & you may learn the truth for a change. Thanks for your understanding

Sorry, mike, but that's out of Newt Gingrich's playbook. Thanks for trying!

And now, I have to go; The Eyebrows are telling me it's time for lunch. But I can't wait to return for your next comedy routine, you know, the one where you actually lay out some factual accusations instead of blanket statements without anything to back them up. You know, the Fox News way.

ah, when lacking in the facts, the liberal playbook says to attack the person's character.

Good job! Olberman would be proud! Will you next post nominated me for worst person of the week? Or is that only reserved for Republicans.

mike, seriously, you're killing me with the comedy. Please, don't stop. Tell me another one about how Sub-commandante Kos is sending Deranged Bush Hatred Waves out to an unsuspecting populace using Keith Olbermann's eyebrows as a transmitter.

If Keith Olbmermann is a fool, then what does that make the likes of Bill O'Reilly, Neil Cavuto and Sean Hannity?

ah, that's right Adam. It's forbidden to speak against the liberal point of view or face name calling by the Kos-police.

Olberman is a fool. Please get back to me when he complains about a non-Republican. Then maybe we can take your comments seriously.

Frick! "Network," not "netword." I guess I was laughing too hard to pay attention to spelling.

Hahahahahahaha...oh. So. Funny, mike! Because Al-Jazeera is a *terrorist* netword, and anyone who criticizes the President *must* be a terrorist as well!

Seriously, mike, you should take that act on the road. You'd have 'em rolling in the aisles with that kind of astute political comedy.

I hear MSNBC is moving Countdown with Keith Olberman to Al-Jazeera International.
