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.

Linguistically speaking

A recent commercial on TV for some sort of massaging goggles supposed to be a health benefit were touted as aiding the purchaser to "rest and de-stress". I guess "rest" wasn't hip enough. Pretty soon Boy Scouts will be de-bunking at camp at reveille.

Quality Candidates
March 20, 2014
Just an observation that in these days of candidates trying to out conservative or out progressive one another and talking about anything other than how to actually solve some of our country's problems, Bulloch County is truly blessed to have two such well-qualified candidates vying for Clerk of Superior Court. ...

Ambassador Appointments
February 17, 2014
Much is being made of recent nominations for ambassador positions. Nominees not having ever visited the country to which they are being nominated. Not being fully versed in the current political situation of the country. Being rewarded for fund raising for the sitting president. Big whoop! Ambassador positions have always ...

I had a Facebook post from one of my friends at church which was a forward. I don't remember the topic of the post but what made me take note was a comment that said, "Thank God for the Reformation." And I wondered if the person who commented on the ...

Government Shutdown

So, Congress avoided their self-created economic and political crisis. At the last minute, of course. And now the pundits and the poiliticians both begin to spin the results to favor their preferred personal outlook. But, their discussions revolve around whether the Republicans or the Administration "lost". Or, who gained the ...
