We believe that democracies need information to flourish. In light of critical events unfolding across North Africa and the Middle East, tsunamis and nuclear crisis ravaging Japan, and riots in the streets of London, now--more than ever--we Americans demand to know what's going on around us, both at home and abroad.
Al Jazeera English (AJE) is an internationally acclaimed news network that broadcasts to over 250 million households in 120 countries on 6 continents, yet it is available in only 5 places in the entire U.S. (Washington, DC; Burlington, VT; Bristol County, RI: Toledo, OH; and New York City, NY).
Right now, Comcast subscribers in Washington, D.C. have full cable access to the channel. Their customers in other regions, however, don't. This needs to change. As one of the largest cable providers in the U.S., it is time for Comcast Cable to get with the program and provide its customers with full cable access to Al Jazeera English.
