In a one-hour promo that Al Jazeera America aired before it debuted its programming on Tuesday, the network featured words of endorsement from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In a promotional montage of images and clips, Al Jazeera America played a clip of Hillary Clinton saying that Al Jazeera is "real effective," and "viewership is going up because it's real news."

A clip of McCain aired in which he says, "what Al Jazeera has done is to achieve what I think all of us want to achieve—and that is to make a contribution."

McCain recently suggested that he may consider voting for Clinton, despite her role in the Benghazi terror attack scandal, if she won her party's nomination and ended up facing Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in the 2016 presidential contest.
Multiple images of President Barack Obama showed up in the montage, as did an image of Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

The network claimed that its "journalism integrity knows no borders" and then previewed and profiled its shows, anchors, and personalities.

Immediately after the "This is Al Jazeera" promo, anchor Tony Harris, formely of CNN, introduced the network and anchored the hour-long newscast at 4 PM EDT.

 I see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Al Jazeera is a enemy to this country, so of course Hilary and McCain endorse it.

Al Jazeera America Dumped By 5 Million Customer Cable Provider

The Wrap reports that a mere hour before Al Jazeera America launched Tuesday, cable provider AT&T U-Verse dropped the Qatar-financed cable news channel over a "contract dispute." This is a loss of five million potential households.

As of July 2013, U-Verse boasted over 5 million TV customers, though not all of them are subscribers to the package that contains Al Jazeera America. AT&T would not specify how many are subscribers to that package.

Thus far, after only a few hours on the air,  AJA's launch is receiving widespread criticism. After boasting that AJA would deliver "fact-based, unbiased and in-depth news," the network's first guest was Stephen Walt, who is infamous for what the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg describes as "Jew baiting."

AJA's very first lead story Tuesday, was a sympathetic look at "anti-American terrorists detained on the battlefield for actions taken by U.S. medical personnel".

Why has Trump done scores of interviews on Fox and virtually nowhere else the last two months? Because he’s not interested in winning over undecideds, independents, or swing voters — you know the sort of thing serious presidential candidates do. No, he’s reselling the same product to people who’ve already bought it so he can take the customers with him after the election.

Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for want
