Bring back Al Jazeera
Published: Sep 09, 2013
Through your kind office I should like to congratulate your opinion columnist Front Porch for the excellence of the case for the return of Al Jazeera to Cable Bahamas’ offerings. It is quite regrettable that it was ever removed. One can’t imagine the curious reasoning that would have driven that decision.
Al Jazeera truly provides a depth of journalism and a coverage of global developments noticeably missing from the other networks, with the exception of the BBC. And at times the reach of its analytical programming into uncomfortable subjects in the West is unmatched, even by the BBC.
It is hoped that the reason for Al Jazeera’s removal from Cable Bahamas’ offerings could be quickly reconsidered so that the channel can be returned to Bahamian viewers. This would go a long way toward balancing the mind-numbing fare that is offered in such great abundance.
