    Good article.
    They were not being picked up by main stream media. So the revenue wasn't coming in to continue and sustain.

    OPINION: Requiem for a media pioneer

    Al Jazeera America advanced human rights through journalism
    america.aljazeera.com

    The U.S. exalts civil and political rights, even as it allows them to be subverted, including through the corrosive influence of money that is transforming American democracy into
    a plutocracy.
    At home, mass incarceration, the death penalty, police brutality, the erosion of voting rights, the criminalization of poverty, persistent racism and the lack of equal justice in the courts in both criminal and civil matters dog U.S. legitimacy as a human rights leader.

    [QUOTE="Liberty, post: 944193, member: 56013" This is sad. There is no site that compares to Aljazeera. You could always count on them to give the unadulterated truth. Well, at least they will still have their television channel.

    Thanks for posting, James./QUOTE]

    Thanks for a great heads up James. Knowledge is POWER isn’t it?

    Now can you relate t why the current status quo always attempt to totally control what is projected and promoted as TRUTH by the mass media in every area of human activity [especially African history], which explains why BIG BUSINESS wouldn’t be advertising on/funding Aljazeera’s website, doesn’t it?

    Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
    graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?
