First Tunisia, then Egypt, and now … the Big Apple. Al Jazeera English is coming to New York City, subletting the RISE cable channel. AJE has been virtually shut-out of U.S. markets due to post 9/11 xenophobia, but the U.S. media relied on Doha-based Al Ajzeera for coverage of the recent Arab Spring uprisings, so the absurdity of the exclusion has become apparent.
