Al Jazeera Produces Its Propaganda In English

From a gleeful Al Jazeera:

Newscasters work at the English-language newsroom at the headquarters of the Qatar-based Al Jazeera satellite channel in Doha November, 14, 2006.

Al Jazeera English all set to launch

Tuesday 14 November 2006

Al Jazeera’s English-language television news channel is all set to reach 80 million homes worldwide.

At 1200 GMT on Wednesday, Al Jazeera English will begin broadcasting from the network’s main studios in Doha, Qatar.

The first such international news and current affairs channel with its headquarters in the Middle East, it will far exceed the original launch target of 40 million cable and satellite households.

Wadah Khanfar, the director-general of Al Jazeera network, said: "Our launch figure is over double the original target we set for ourselves.

"We will continue to build on this figure after launch and will be looking to expand our reach significantly. This is another reflection of the strength of Al Jazeera brand."

In addition to cable and satellite, it will be available on broadband, IPTV, ADSL, terrestrial and mobile phone platforms.

Lindsey Oliver, the commercial director of Al Jazeera English, said: "We particularly appreciate the support that has been shown far and wide with distributors signing up to carry Al Jazeera English on the reputation of the Al Jazeera brand, our stated goals, our on air and off air teams, and without having seen the channel on air." …

Though this might mean they lose some of their audience, it’s certain that our one party media will be grateful for the help.

It’s clear that getting out the hate America message is more important to them than money.
