IF you have not watched Al Jazeera America (Channel 358 on Direct TV), please give it a try. Some very good objective reporting on the international front and the national.

I have not watched a lot of diffeent programs, predominantly the 6 PM news and the money show with Ali Vesli at 7 PM, along with a little of the morning news.

It certainly beats CNN, Fox, MSNBC and the rest.

did you notice some of the anchors used to be on cnn? the name al jazeera may put some people off but i found that it is actually a very good network

DRL, yes I did notice CNN because the showbiz aspect comes through in the anchors. I don't like the Wolf Blitzer stand in the screen style. Probably says more about me than the news. The reports and reporters impress me, particularly on international events.

Format needs improving because I don't need to hear about a 15' alligator on national news. I'll see it three times on local. Stick with global and national events and emphsis on depth of coverage.

I caught it on the first day and found it to be adequate but a bit amateurish.

Other than hard news which Fox, CNN and the rest already cover well I found it to be just more talking heads...

I have watched Aljazeera news for the last couple years on Link TV.

I found it to be surprisingly neutral on most topics except for anything to do with Israel.

I haven’t managed to catch the new channel yet but look forward to seeing how it compares.

Hunter, try it again. I too thought the first day was weak. The black anchorman came across as doing a bad Captain Kirk impression. But, the anchors have improved and the news reports are still head and shoulders above any other.

Marco Rubio for POTUS
May 21, 2015
I won't vote for Rubio because of his stance on normalizing relations with Cuba. Allow American tourism, banking, and consumer goods -especially Internet access, smart phones - and agricultural products into Cuba. Leave them alone politically. Cuba will become a valued economic partner and, perhaps a democracy. Failed policies are ...

"Takers"

One topic sure to bring vehement responses and rhetoric is people on "welfare" - lazy, shiftless no accounts sucking on the government teat with no thought of working or bettering themselves. And you know it's true, you've read those type of comments on this very site. Volunteering at a non-denominational ...

ISIS Structure

This doesn't really fit in the category of politics. But it doesn't fit very well in any other category. Here is a lengthy (very) but extremely interesting article from Der Spiegel concerning the death of a key architect of ISIS and his designs for accomplishing specific territorial and secular goals ...

ISIS as Capitalists?
March 05, 2015
An informative article on ISIS economics and patronage. Considering most of the surrounding countries are, for the most part, decrying ISIS and threatening actions, I wonder how all the oil and other items are getting out and in. http://www.businessinsider.com/tafrikinomics-how-isis-funds-its-caliphate-2015-3

Homeland Security
February 28, 2015
An incumbent president issues an executive order. The opposition party can't block it legislatively because they don't have the votes. The states exercise the Federal courts and block implementation. Appeals pending. Constitution working just fine. Cannot say the same for politicians.
