Al Jazeera’s name means “the island” or “the peninsula,” a reference to Qatar, where it was founded. But Al Jazeera English is stranded on a desert island in America — no major cable or satellite provider carries it. Over-the-air provider MHz Networks in Northern Virginia makes AJE available for free here in Washington, so we got real coverage of events in Egypt. The rest of the U.S. got celebrity gossip and blather.Now, this presents a bit of a dilemma for the true patriot who resents government interference but hates those damn camel jockies even more. What' a real American to do, demand access to Al Jazeera?
