Ask Your Cable Channel to Carry Al-Jazeera

The new Sept./Oct issue of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs features a story on Al Jazeera English-language channel which in the U.S. can only be seen in Toledo, OH and Burlington, VT. This is ironic since Al Jazeera English is viewed by 85 million households worldwide -- vastly outdistancing BBC World and CNN International.

The channel runs 24/7 reporting from capitals all over the world -- for instance, David Frost, formerly of the BBC, reports from London.

All we need to do is call our local cable supplier and insist that they offer Al Jazeera English as an option selection.

Either check your latest cable TV bill to get the local number or I have listed below numbers published in Washington Report.
