Big Welcome Aljazzera!

Reader comment on item: Al-Jazeera in Al-Canada?

Submitted by Sam (Canada), Feb 17, 2011 at 22:18

It is funny that while we preach others about freedom of speech and expression, we keep some very successful channels shut up and blacked out so no one can hear them, because we do not like their "views", or should I rather say, the views that some of their guests have had in some point in the past. This is a shame. No other word to describe it. And guess what, America isn't the only one suppressing Aljazeera, dictators in Egypt Tunisia and Libya are doing so as well. See a pattern.

Reject all excuses, support freedom of expression. If people want to listen to Al Jazeera and a lot do, they should be able to. I also invite people to see for themselves, I've watched al Jazeera for long and I loved it, it often shows you a side of the picture you don't see elsewhere.
