Aljazeera America

Really? I have been seeing ads all over TV, now I’m seeing them here and there on the internet, they are marketing this thing up heavily. While I am all for the free market and open competition, I have to wonder…do we really need a conservative, religiously/politically motivated, fundamentalist slant on our news? Don’t we already have Fox News?

I have about as much interest in watching this as I would for signing up for free shock therapy, which is less than zero. In fact, what I see from regular Fox News viewers, is that stupefied deer in the headlights look, that people should not value as a personality trait. Reminds me of those old “this is your brain on drugs” commercials. This is you before Faux News, This is you after…

Didn’t Aljazeera just get banned from the air somewhere? In a country of their own religious view? http://www.dc4mf.org/en/content/al-jazeera-mubasher-misr-and-four-other-channels-forced-air

Just what we need, a bunch of shit stirring, emotion manipulating, riot inducing, “news”. If Faux News is bad, this is probably something much, much worse. I will not be watching, I would prefer my brain on drugs…I really hope they shrivel up and die due to lack of paid commercials, or funding in general, before they become the problem here, they have proven to be elsewhere.

I don’t want or need my news flavored with a point of view. I want my news presented as the facts, I am perfectly capable of forming my own views. Thank you. “Just the facts ma’am.” Joe Friday, Dragnet. Yeah, probably giving away my age with that one  🙂
