That's for the Liberals to declare, not Al Jazeera...

>Liberalism is no longer profitable

2016 is going to be a year of magic
>>
Al Jazeera isn't liberal you fanatical partisans.

Ehhh another liberal channel will take its place so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
>>
I don't know what that is.
>>
Not like it really matters. Al Jazeera=BBC
>>
>>16679
This. I hope to god this is true.
>>
>>16671
I watched them sometimes when they first came to my cable system, but not as much lately as in the beginning. They showed too many 30 minute or hourlong documentaries and not enough news. Not that the documentaries weren't necessarily well put together or newsworthy, but I was really hoping for more breaking news coverage and a channel that deviated from what the big three cable news networks were doing. Al jazeera wasn't that.

That said, they did offer some coverage of things nobody else would touch, which is sorely needed because of the big cable news channels' corporate sponsors, like oil spills, IP rights issues, and bank shenanigans.

tl;dr it was a disappointing channel but I'm still sorry to see it go.
>>
Lol at the people thinking Al Jazeera is liberal

I bet you think socialism = communism too
>>
>>16746
Same shit.
>>
Al Jazeera was the dingleberries of that shitstain 'Current TV.'

Glad to see it finally fail.
>>
>>16671
Didn't they already do this once before a couple years ago?
>>
>>16746
Communism, like Nazism, is an extreme form of socialism.
>>
I liked watching Al Jazeera when shit was going down in Egypt and nobody else was covering stuff.

Who's gonna talk about shit like that now?

> Al Jazeera America Board
Sounds like Hiro's next board for us...
>>
>>16817
Heh... heh you're joking right?
>>
>>16741
Ever seen RT? They pretty much cover all that you just mentioned.
>>
>>16828
>Socialist actually believe this.
>>
>>16671
The assholes from Occupied East Doha can't hack it.
>>
They're concentrating on their web content instead, so they're not completely going away.
>>
>>16828
The goal of Socialism is Communism
t. Vladimir Lenin
>>
>>16726
I'm shocked how many people don't know this.
>>
>>16852
This is coming from a right-libertarian: you're being retarded. Not every socialist is a communist but every communist is a socialist. Socialism predates communistic ideas and Marxism by centuries. I, however, do believe it is a slippery slope and socialist counties need to watch themselves.
>>
Trump already winning
>>
Al Jazeera is a much more fair and balanced source of news than the jew dominated american and euro media
>>
>>17065
I watch AJ for six months because they claimed this.

They lied.
>>
>>16832
Yeah but theyre actual Russian propaganda with alotta shills in their comment sections
So you have the trade off of news you wouldn't normally hear and having to take a much bigger piece of salt with it than Jazeera
>>
>2016
>watching any news other than financials

hue hue

>>17092
>not watching local happenings and weather

hook nose jew detected

Qatar shill detected.

Why are you on /news/?!
>>
>>16671
Peyton did it!
>>
kind of sad about this. they had some p. ace reporters and i preferred reading their stuff than bbc's.
>>
>>17118
nigger detected
>>
There isn't a single superior news source for Westerners. Everything else is either horribly skewed and opinionated or hidden behind puff pieces and thinly-veiled advertisements. Al Jazeera's opinion articles were always total horseshit, but at least they were labeled opinion front and center.
>>
>>17128
heh prolly tru
>>
Eh Al Jazeera America was shit anyways.
Hopefully this means they will open back up Al Jazeera English as the content on their wasn't as watered down.
>>
>>16726
Are you stupid?
>>
>>16671
so it looks like the goal was to shut down the channel they bought like I suspected. We lost the only non profit news station (current TV) to al jazera now they are pulling out. So now there is no media outlet not owned by the media conglomerates in america. Its all downhill from here boys.
>>
>>16759
I can tell that your education was free.
>>
>>16818
Al Jazeera English

>>16746
even outside its 100% liberal opinion section, its articles read like liberal opinion pieces
>>
yet Al Jazeera English HQ in London remains

Good, the Middle East shouldn't have had a TV station in America anyways, fucking liberal scum
>>
>>16671
>>16702
What outlet is going to flood my news with stupid stories of Palestinians getting shot for stabbing people? What about the self-victimization of all the other middle east issues?
