Accuracy in Media

Al Jazeera America, which was shut down in April after losing millions of dollars and failing to find an audience in the U.S., is back, but this time as a digital news channel.

The news channel—called Al Jazeera English—is offering a free live stream through its website and other platforms.

Besides the website, the channel can be accessed by IOS and Android mobile apps; Amazon Fire TV; Android TV; Apple TV; and Roku, as well as podcasts on iTunes.

“In a world seemingly beset by rising bigotry and extremism, Al Jazeera English provides a wider scope of information, insight and understanding. We are delighted to bring this independent and thought-provoking content to the U.S. market,” Giles Trendle, acting Managing Director of Al Jazeera English, said in a statement this week.

That’s pretty rich coming from a channel owned by the Qatari government, which is known for its Muslim Brotherhood ties and general disdain for the U.S. and Israel.
