Americans Turning to Al Jazeera

         The Egyptian crisis is providing the Qatar-based sattelite news channel Al Jazeera with its best chance yet to capture the US audience. The channel is not available with many US cable operators because many fear the content would be seen by American conservatives as  ‘anti-American.’ Al Jazeera has won praise for its on-the-spot reporting and uncensored content during the protests in Egypt and  is now the number one news channel watched on youtube. It is one of the most diverse news networks in the world, with over 400 journalists in more than 60 countries.
