I think it might be some what good to see the political views of most Arabian people from the middle east. Esp. how the locals think of the US, and the world around them.

I've been checking their English website since 9-11 ... I'm guessing the content there is a good indicator of what the broadcast network will bring.

If nothing else, it should goad some of our networks into delivering a little more news & a little less "fluff" ... which, imho is a very good thing !!

Diversity of opinions is good; news networks actually reporting news is also good ... until they start embedding subliminal "become a muslim" messages - I'm happy to see it !!

Right concept, wrong teminology ... this new Al-J IS a network - it's our cable/satellite providers who will elect not to carry them!

I think it's a great idea.

Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer...
