New TV news networks with truly global designs don't get launched too often. They're hugely expensive to staff and operate, and their success involves negotiating with cable carriers in different countries with different audiences and different agendas. And frankly, the need for their existence is always questioned - at least in the beginning - more than it is applauded. So it was certifiably noteworthy when, after several months' delay, Al-Jazeera English (AJE) finally launched in mid-November, reportedly to 80 million homes worldwide.
As the English-speaking offshoot of the famously Arab-centric original, the network was long-awaited by supporters, detractors, and the merely curious alike.
The success or failure of the venture is more important than that of most media startups. If AJE gains a sustainable foothold in the US market, it will be the most revolutionary thing to hit the news business since Fox News Channel and will fundamentally reshape the way that advertisers, politicians, and the media itself relates to Middle Eastern people around the world. . .
At the same time, AJE must make it a strong priority to get its offering in front of American eyeballs.
True, the entire English-speaking world is its audience, and a big enough one that the station may be able to make a go of it without depending on US revenue. But here is where the media players play, and if its news cannot compete head-to-head in this country, AJE is forgoing much of its potential impact on the public discussion.
Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, says AJE's potential impact on the US is huge, but it will take a groundswell of support to make sure the station is seen.' If the American public is exposed to a network with a different perspective on international events, I think that will add to the debate... that's going on at the international level,' he says. 'If people let their cable companies know... that they do want to hear different perspectives on international events, that could move the process forward.'
I am not interested in hearing Al Jazeer's perspective on international events... and I guess we can contact our cable stations and tell them that WE DO NOT want Al Jazeera broadcast in our country!!!
