"Russian Jewish entrepreneurs are having trouble getting their Jewish television channels off the ground in an effort to counter the influence of Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based, Muslim-sponsored television network. In the latest instance, entrepreneur and politician Vladimir Slutzker has been trying to create an English-language television channel that would offer news from a Jewish perspective, with little success thus far. ... Meanwhile, Nikolai Amiridze, a former producer of Russian state TV’s Channel One, has been trying to launch Shalom TV, a proposed Jewish channel from Russia. He has not been able to find investors thus far." Miriam Cross, Shalom Life, 24 February 2010.
