al jazeera english

I've made a pact with myself to read at least one article from here each day. You can also watch by clicking on "watch now" (duh!). I learned from Part IV of Frontline's News War last night that no American media outlet will carry Al Jazeera English, which just launched in November of 2006. Of what are people so afraid? The requiem at the end of part IV, for journalists from around the world who have been killed, imprisoned, or exiled in the past year, is especially moving.

"Of what are people so afraid?" you ask. Well, they're certainly afraid of educated folks who refuse to place a preposition at the end of a sentence!.... Yes, Part IV was great.
