jayhawk88: I wonder what their thinking was in not renaming the channel as "American News Network" or something equally non-threatening? I know that branding is important and stuff, but a back-to-basics news channel might actually resonate with "folks" if it didn't have the name Al Jazeera and that funny, foreign looking logo.

Part of it is branding, and part of it is journalistic ethics.  They are letting you know who they are, so you can determine for yourself if their news needs interpreting.

If anything, al Jazeera is more of a threat to the neo-liberals than to the conservatives.  They don't sanitize their reporting, and it's hard to maintain the Pollyanna bs neo-iiberal line in the face of real consequences.

Article III, Section 3
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.

In a properly organized Nation they would be shown the door, while on fire ..

The office's resident Fox News aficionado said he sent an email to Comcast demanding AJA never be put on his cable system so as to, and I'm not joking, "protect our Freedom."
