Luc van Braekel was invited last Saturday to join other bloggers to visit France 24’s studios. Today, he writes about the experience. He also filed a video report. Read and watch the video here: http://lvb.net/item/3925.
Al-Jazeera English, the English version of the international news network al-Jazeera, has launched yesterday. Available on cable in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, the new network is expected to be a major France 24 competitor. Both networks are expected to bring a different point of view on the news to offset the American and British leadership from CNN, Fox News and the BBC.
To analyze the new network, I started another weblog: http://aljazeera.wordpress.com.
