Al Jazeera in English
November 28, 2006 Tuesday 3PM CT
Al-Jazeera went live with its English service earlier this month, but one major market still doesn’t have it: America, where cable and satellite networks claim there’s no market for it. But why? This hour on Here on Earth, join Jean Feraca after three as she talks with Al Jazeera anchor Dave Marash and others about the network’s fight for the U.S. audience.
- Dave Marash, anchor, Al-Jazeera English
- Hugh Miles, author, "Al-Jazeera: The Inside Story of the Arab News Channel That is Challenging the West."
- Mohammed el-Nawawy, author, "Al-Jazeera: How the Free Arab News Network Scooped the World and Changed the Middle East."
- Clarence 11/28/06: "I would listen to Al-Jazeera because I like to hear the other side, knowing full well that it would be slanted to the Muslim perspective, just as I listen to WPR, knowing that it's slanted to the liberal side. I might very well disagree with most of what they have to say but I respect their right to say what they want."
