Al Jazeera America Tanks in Opening Week
« on: August 28, 2013, 01:32:17 PM »
Al Jazeera America’s launch in place of the failed Current TV network was an unsurprising dud, TV Newser reports.

Available in more than 40 million homes, its initial ratings were poor for cable news standards. Its best showing of the week was just 54,000 viewers for Thursday night’s Real Money with Ali Velshi:
------
Al Jazeera America, which bills itself as a neutral news station, is funded and operated by the Qatari government, which has used the Arabic version of Al Jazeera to back the Muslim Brotherhood and other violent Islamist groups. Its first guest was conspiracy theorist Stephen Walt, the notorious coauthor of The Israel Lobby, which accused U.S. Jews and others of perniciously manipulating American foreign policy.

Republican Assemblyman and Iraq war veteran Kieran Michael Lalor wrote to the heads of major U.S. cable companies on Monday to demand that they drop Al Jazeera America.

I'm surprised the far left liberals in our country are not embracing this station.

Al-J is advertising like mad on HGTV and Food Networks with sappy photos of Superstorm Sandy survivors. Tells you what they think of people who watch cooking or home remodeling shows, I guess.  :shrug:

Even though I love cooking and decorating shows, I had to stop watching those channels because they were all gay - all day long.  They were really promoting that agenda!

Yes!  I used to love HGTV and some of the cooking shows, but now the house hunters are all gay couples.  What has happened to television as a whole is disgusting.   Very few shows remain that are worth watching.   **nononono*

My mother got me hooked on HGTV because there were a lot of good DIY programs.  Not anymore.   **nononono*
