Posted: 01 Nov 2007

"TVNewser: One year after its launch, Al Jazeera English is: [Dave Marash, Aljazeera English Washington anchor]: Exactly what it said it would be: a straight-up, international news channel, which goes at a slightly slower pace, doing fewer stories, but doing them with more depth and context, reporting especially from the places (South America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia) more conventional news channels largely ignore, and ignoring many of the inconsequential stories (the adventures of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and O.J. Simpson, for examples) our competitors seem to thrive on.", 30 October 2007.
