“There are absolutely offers on the table right now from cable operators.” This is what a spokesman for Al-Jazeera International says about entering the U.S. media market. He adds, “They have a number of different options – cable, satellite, streaming video, Internet phone service – and need to decide how they want to enter the U.S. market.”
If this is the case, then we must redouble our efforts to keep it out. We have to find out who these “cable operators” are and get the facts about this terrorist-front into their hands.
The Al-Jazeera spokesman, incidentally, is Michael Holtzman of the public relations firm, Brown Lloyd James. He claims the delay in launching Al-Jazeera International is entirely due to technical problems.
Does anybody really believe that?
