Al-Jazeera America (AJAM) Watch

Update: AJAM discontinued broadcasting on April 12, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern)
Financed by the oil sheikdom of Qatar, the network began broadcasting on Aug. 20, 2013. Why would Qatar's rulers – who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to launch the new satellite-cable news channel – want to compete with other American cable and over-the-air networks? To give Americans yet another choice for television news, or to gain a platform for Qatari foreign policy (as has been the case with Al-Jazeera Arabic and Al-Jazeera English)? That policy has been problematic in recent years.
