I have never liked Al Jazeera TV and Al Jazeera given a foothold in the USA and in Canada was pure stupidity. Kudos to Comcast for slamming the doors on Al-Jazeera in their own network ...and I hope they don't leave any loopholes open via which this stealth jihadi channel would try endlessly to slither through.... like the roaches they are. In Canada, the CRTC had no problem opening the doors to this jihadi cable into our country, but our grassroots channel SUN TV had to struggle through the hurdles thrown in their path by them and the rabid lefties in this country. That's how LEFTwards Canadian organizations have shifted and that's why we have to work extra hard to RIGHT that wrong
FamilySecurityMatters is reporting that: In good news for the American people but bad news for NBC’s Andrea Mitchell, a vice president for Comcast is now on the record saying that the cable giant is not negotiating to carry the terror TV channel Al-Jazeera in more U.S. media markets.
“We do not have an agreement with this service that would permit us to carry Al Jazeera English on our cable systems and Comcast is not currently in active talks to complete such an agreement,” says David A. Jensen, Vice President for Content Acquisition at Comcast. His April 15 letter was in response to an Accuracy in Media supporter by the name of Jeffrey Smith, who had sent a letter to the cable company objecting to the possibility of al-Jazeera getting more carriage. Smith made the Comcast letter available to us for publication at this time.
Andrea Mitchell, NBC News’ chief foreign affairs correspondent, will no doubt be disappointed at the announcement. She recently told the Atlantic, “I think Al-Jazeera has become indispensable. There’s a big difference between Al-Jazeera overseas and Al-Jazeera English but they are clearly part of the story and I rely on them very heavily, as does the State Department. I think the channel ought to be available more widely in the U.S. given the work they’ve been doing in Tunisia, Libya and certainly Egypt.”
While Al-Jazeera English does water down the anti-Semitic and pro-Jihad programming available on Al-Jazeera Arabic, the channels are owned by the same autocrat, the Emir of Qatar. And the “work” the channel has been doing in countries like Egypt mostly consists of provoking and covering riots and demonstrations. At the same time, the channel played down the role of the demonstrators in assaulting CBS News reporter Lara Logan, who suffered serious injuries. .........
