Broadcasting Board of Governors Notebook, 14 Feb 2013: "Today, February 14, 2013, marks the 9th anniversary of Alhurra Television! Alhurra broadcasts objective and accurate Arabic-language news and information to 22 countries throughout the Middle East and North Africa. In addition to reporting on world events, Alhurra provides context and analysis to give viewers a broader understanding of the actions impacting the region. Alhurra also provides the comprehensive coverage from the United States drawing on dedicated correspondents at the White House, State Department, Congress, and Pentagon." -- I.e., Alhurra fulfills both the surrogate broadcasters' "mission" and VOA's "mission," all within one television channel. More convenient for the audience, more economical for the US taxpayer.
