Current was not worth what Al Jazeera paid for it.

Personally, I think it would be good for Al Jazeera to have a bigger presence in America.
It was successfully branded a terrorist news outlet after 911 because it has often repeated terrorist propaganda. However, in the Arab world it is pretty well hated due to the fact they often broadcast dissenting views that the governments do not approve of.

I personally like it because it consists of a lot more "real" news than you find in America.
That is, they have journalists on the ground reporting on what is happening and not so much talking heads sitting around shouting at each other.

^ Yeah, Al Jazeera is a source of news that I frequent. I don't feel that they're biased, but then I'm super liberal so maybe my own bias prevents me from seeing theirs.

I am definitely looking forward to the change. Al Jazeera is pretty much the only reliable tv news outlet. They do something really odd: unbiased news reporting.
