Al Jazeera to renew lobbying to be carried on U.S. cable systems

New York Times
If major cable and satellite companies like Comcast and DirecTV are willing to carry Al Jazeera English, they weren’t willing to say so on Monday, reports Brian Stelter. Currently, there’s full access to the network in only a handful of U.S. cities: Washington D.C., Burlington, Vt. and Toledo, Ohio.

    How long are Americans going to put up with having their news censored by private corporations like Comcast?

    It’s clear that CNN’s coverage is inadequate and highly biased — they have been reporting the GOP version of the events in Egypt, purely from American conservative political perspective. CNN, who came to prominence reporting on the first Gulf War, has completely lost their way, hosting panels of neoconservatives and “experts” from AEI when what viewers would like is actual news and not opinions of the news. CNN is just completely inadequate, useless, when it comes to important world news.
