Josh Rushing: turncoat, pawn, biggest boob in America, traitor…on air personality for a 24-hour news channel?
The battery died on my TP earlier on. I was in Starbucks and decided to go buy myself one of those paper things with pages that are glued together…a magazine, that's it.
I got a copy of FAST COMPANY. I've read some articles online and its quite good. I've never purchased a print-copy of this magazine before. The feedback page had lots about an article called "Al Jazeera's (Global) Mission, written by Linda Tischler. Some of the feedback included:
Kudos on such a complete and informative story on the launch of Al Jazeera International …I do hope Americans can look past what they've been spoon-fed on the subject of Al Jazeera…This article is mind-altering. It's so amazing to hear something of real value from a U.S. source….
I thought to myself, 'this is interesting', so I went onto Fast Company to read the article.
It's an excellent article and well worth a read. It looks at Al Jazeera's new channel, boradcast in English and includes some broadcast heavy hitters including Dave Marash (ABC), Sir David Frost (BBC),and Riz Kahn (CNN) among others. I encourage anyone to have a look at this unbiased article that is well written and insightful.
Anyone read it? Any comments?
