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.
