'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

'Viewership of Al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it's real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you're getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners.'

-- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (right), referring to a Qatar-based media outlet (cited in posts in our North Africa series) during her testimony before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee this week.
Care to wager how long before U.S. cable stations begin picking up AJE?
