No love for Al-Jazeera in Yemen either

Unfortunately too many Americans say Al-Jazeera is a shill for terrorists. That shows how little these people understand Al-Jazeera.

To demonstrate that Al-Jazeera is not as bad as what too many Americans think, the government of Yemen is blocking Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya broadcasts into their country.

And the reason for the blockage:

  • Officially, both news organizations failed to get “permission” to broadcast (their satellite signals) into Yemen.

The real reasons:

  • Both news services aired reports of clashes between police and protesters in the southern town of Daleh as well as disturbances and demonstrations in the north.
