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!
