"Two major Arab TV networks, al Jazeera and al Hurra, [joined] American networks and cable news stations to cover President Obama's State of the Union tonight and the post-speech spin. Maps ... show 57 different camera positions, including two for al Jazeera and one for al Hurra. In the Capitol, al Jazeera gets a choice location near the center of the half-circle hall filled with statues of American heroes."
