It's being broadcast period. Most of those folks don't have cable tv like us. They pick it up with antennas, that means anybody can watch if they can get the signal. I don't know about Canada or anything.

I've been hanging around with buddies mooching tv time off of them since my cable's still out. One of them still has an old school satellite dish, one of the big ones, we can tune in on some furrin' tv shows and news sometimes. We might have seen it once or twice. We just don't know what the hell they are saying. It's funny to watch them and listen to some speed metal at the same time.

If you watched CNN or Fox during Iraq I or Iraq II you probably were watching Al Jazeera - at least part of the time. There were many point during the early going of Iraq II when U.S. networks were not allowed to broadcast from many parts of Iraq. When that happened, they would join hands with Al Jazeera - which WAS allowed to broadcast . The pictures you were watching were in many cases Al Jazeera TV crews - with a U.S. reporter or anchor person doing the voice over.

And Gen3 is right. Reading the Al Jazeera web site news coverage (along with BBC coverage and the better U.S. newspaper coverage) can provide a more accurate picture of what is going on around the world. Far from being a "terrorist" front, Al Jazeera is a legit news operation.

The only problem with Al Jezerra news is nobody ever smiles, very depressing. I never seen a TV network where smiling seems to be taboo?
