AJ in America: Note

I'll be following the arrival and growth of Al Jazeera America here. It's a fascinating phenomenon--a Qatari funded network attempting, with considerable thought, consideration, and attention; with the successful, nuanced experience of AJE, and at a moment when news forms are in a state of desperate, ambiguous flux, to break into and influence the consciousness of the American public.  At once a radical gamble, but clearly being executed with patience, resources and experience that characterize the network.

We will watch, consider, and comment closely as what is now barely apparent to most in the US attempts to emerge into the moving American mind.
