AJE To Launch In The US – The Sequel

Al Jazeera English will launch on an American network within the next six months, according to its London bureau chief.

Sue Phillips said the channel – which is currently only available online in the US through link-ups including a deal with YouTube – is overcoming misinterpretations about its agenda that earned it “the terrorist channel” label.

“The climate has changed in the US,” she said. “We’re almost confident in saying we should be on a platform in the States within the next six months.

“There’s much more of an understanding now about Al Jazeera. The Americans are warming to us.”
