Al Jazeera Starts “Al Jazeera America”

The Qatari Al Jazeera network has long since been trying to get onto American televisions, even making campaigns with the hash tag of “#DemandAlJazeera” and having forums in the United States. The forums have gotten prominent personnel from both parties in American politics, such as John McCain, the Republican nominee for President in 2008 and Hillary Clinton, the current Secretary of State.

Al Jazeera is funded by the Qatari government and sometimes side with their foreign policy, the Syrian conflict being a perfect example. They, like many other news outlets, have decided to air countless falsified videos of the Free Syrian Army carrying out attacks then blaming the Syrian Army for it.

In addition, most media outlets including Al Jazeera, CNN, Fox News, the BBC, and Sky News have not been reporting on most stories of Free Syrian Army brutality, including them using chemical weapons against the government, raping civilians in front of their families, discriminating against minorities, and more.

However, with that said, freedom of speech has to be protected. If Al Jazeera wants to have a channel based in America and is willing to pay for it by buying Current TV (a low rated and highly left-wing bias), then they should be able to.

The fact that an American cable provider, Time Warner, has dropped Al Jazeera after the purchase of Current TV was confirmed. This is a blatant violation of freedom of speech, and it appears that Time Warner wants to control what Americans see to just what their managers deem appropriate.
