the interpretOr is committed to open media and as such, we’re supporting Al Jazeera’s efforts to expand their footprint in the US – an alternative news source to Fox, CNN and the traditional networks.

For example, Al Jazeera has limited broadcast in the US – 5 years since Al Jazeera English launched, the channel is still only available in a handful of US cities. With 70 bureaus across the globe, Al Jazeera claims more than 1,000 staff from 50 nationalities and provides diverse and meaningful perspectives. In Australia, AJ English is becoming a more significant source of international news for SBS bulletins.

For any visitors to the interpretOr based in the US, Al Jazeera English have initiated a campaign to expand their footprint:
