Al-Jazeera America debuts
Praise from a viewer

Not bad at all. [“Al-Jazeera America debuts as newest news network,” seattletimes.com, Aug. 20.]
More news, much less opinions and editorializing; it reminded me of the old days of network news.
Unlike the rest of TV these days, there is no screaming and demonstrably less advertising and interruption.
It’s a miracle — a new network actually presenting the news!
Take that, FOX News and MSNBC!
