Al Jazeera on KCET

Hosted by

In the New York Times, columnist Frank Rich wrote that millions of Americans want the comprehensive and sophisticated news coverage provided by Al Jazeera, the service based in Doha, in the Arab Emirate of Qatar. Rich accused those he called "America's corporate gatekeepers" of censorship like that of the Soviet Union's Communist leaders. In Los Angeles, public television station KCET may no longer air PBS news, but it has started airing Al Jazeera English.
