Al Jazeera America Shutting Down in April
Good news for patriotic Americans… despite only three years of operations, Al Jazeera America is folding. The network will go out of business in April. It will remain on the net, but so what?
The reason why this network was never successful is because its parent network in Qatar engaged in anti-American sentiment. In television, you simply cannot alienate more than half of the population. People are getting their news on TV much less these days, preferring to cruise the net for the latest news and information. So, if a cable news channel, news magazine, or newspaper wants to remain viable, it has to cater to everyone. You can’t just walk away from potential customers, and that’s exactly what Al Jazeera did throughout its short lifespan.
