It therefore seems that our media would immensely benefit from any measure we can take that would tend to dilute the control such corporations exert over the information we receive. And if there is a single most effective and dramatic step one person can take to help achieve more diversity, it is to demand that Al-Jazeera English be added to the nation’s cable offerings.
If you want to see for yourself what’s happening on the streets of Cairo, or in Haiti or Latin America — or even want to see a different angle on news within the US — forget the homogenized, sanitized, commercialized “product” that passes for news as presented by megaconglomerates that would like to shape what you know, think and believe. Now there’s a real alternative, one that’s respected throughout the world as our mainstream media are not: Al-Jazeera English.
Demand AJE. Demand real international reporting. And while you’re at it, demand Ghida Fakhry.
