Accuracy in Media

AJAccording to Dylan Byers of Politico, Al Jazeera is staffing up in anticipation of launching Al Jazeera America. Byers counted 105 jobs in total with 98 located in New York and the rest in Washington, D.C.

This apparently is only the beginning, as Byers reports that Al Jazeera spokesman Stan Collender told him that the network will be creating “multiple hundreds of new positions” and opening new bureaus across the country.

Byers also reported that the launch of the network, which was expected to occur this spring, has been pushed back to sometime within the next six months.
