Al Jazeera outdoes all other cable news channels
in straight news coverage,
with fewer talking heads and
much more reporting.
The production on the other
cable news channels is
a predictable formula which renders reporting
secondary by apparent intent.
The channels serve interests
that might not benefit from honest
or an informed electorate.
We do not care about the emotional impact
of events on talking heads.
We care to know what is happening
to the extent that we can determine
for ourselves what to do.
Obscurantism and personality
won't work anymore.
