GlobeCast – a subsidiary of France Telecom – is the only cable or satellite provider that is beaming Al-Jazeera International’s signal into the U.S. And it takes a very unusual satellite dish to pick it up.
Still, it’s a major victory in the global war on terrorism.
Accuracy in Media is renewing its demand for a federal probe to determine if Al-Jazeera constitutes a global terrorist entity and whether its American operations should be closed down immediately.
An AIM poll found Americans overwhelmingly against Al-Jazeera International coming into American homes.
DowJones Market Watch reports: ”Comcast Corp. (CMCSA, CMCSK), the country’s largest cable operator, won’t distribute the international version of Qatar-based news service al-Jazeera, the company confirmed Tuesday.”
Thank you Comcast.
Al-Jazeera continues to defend and pay the legal bills for its former Kabul, Afghanistan bureau chief, in prison in Spain after being convicted of being an agent of al Qaeda. He was linked in documents to those behind the 9/11 plot.
The AIM DVD on “Terror Television” shows the channel’s first managing director getting orders (and hugs and kisses) from Uday Hussein. Today, Al-Jazeera is a mouthpiece for the Islamic Army of Iraq, composed of former Saddam Hussein loyalists, who are murdering, kidnapping and beheading people, including Americans.
