"Russian Jewish entrepreneur and politician Vladimir Slutzker has a message for Al Jazeera viewers: Watch out. Or, perhaps more accurately, watch my channel. Slutzker is one of several Russian Jewish entrepreneurs trying to create a Jewish TV channel, thus far with limited success. In Slutzker’s model, a Russian-based, English-language worldwide TV channel would counterbalance the Qatar-based, Muslim-sponsored Al Jazeera with world news from a Jewish perspective. Whether Slutzker or any of the other Jewish TV promoters have any chance of succeeding is another matter." JTA, 3 November 2007. See previous post about same subject.
