WE WIN! Terror TV Al Jazeera America Dies, Shutting Down April – Inshallah!

ByPamela Geller on January 13, 2016

We did it! For years we have been fighting the terror organization’s network, Al Jazeera, and while it was a wild, circuitous process, we have ultimately prevailed.

Jihad TV is an epic fail! All those Muslim Brotherhood billions going down the proverbial toilet. Excelsior!

Remember how Hillary Clinton lauded these bloody propagandists during the “Arab Spring”? Her favorite news channel.

What a fight! This was Goebbels TV a la 2015.

“Al Jazeera America Quits,” NY Times, January 13, 2015:

The cable news channel Al Jazeera America, which debuted in 2013 to great fanfare when it promised to cover American news soberly and seriously, is shutting down by the end of April. The move was announced at a companywide meeting on Wednesday.

In a memo to the staff, Al Jazeera America’s chief executive, Al Anstey, said the “decision by Al Jazeera America’s board is driven by the fact that our business model is simply not sustainable in light of the economic challenges in the U.S. media marketplace.”

“I know the closure of AJAM will be a massive disappointment for everyone here who has worked tirelessly for our long-term future,” he continued. “The decision that has been made is in no way because AJAM has done anything but a great job. Our commitment to great journalism is unrivaled.”

Al Jazeera America went on the air in August 2013 after it bought Al Gore’s Current TV for $500 million. It promised to be thoughtful and smart, free of the shouting arguments that have defined cable news in the United States over the last decade. But meaningful viewership never came, with prime-time ratings sometimes struggling to exceed 30,000 viewers.

To make matters worse, the newsroom was hit with turmoil last year when staff members complained bitterly of a culture of fear. There was an exodus of top executives, along with a pair of lawsuits from former employees that included complaints about sexism and anti-Semitism at the news channel.

In May, Ehab Al Shihabi, the chief executive of Al Jazeera America, was replaced by Mr. Anstey. Morale improved in the following months but ratings remained low.

And Al Jazeera America has not been free of controversy in recent months. In November, the news station’s general counsel, David W. Harleston, was suspended following a report in The New York Times that he did not appear to be licensed to practice law. In late December, Al Jazeera aired an hourlong documentary that linked some of the biggest stars in Major League Baseball and the National Football League to performance-enhancing drugs. The most prominent athlete mentioned in the report was the Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who angrily denied the report, calling it “complete garbage” and “totally made up.”

As part of Wednesday’s announcement, Mr. Anstey said that after the cable news network shuts down by April 30, Al Jazeera would expand its digital presence in the United States. The expansion “would bring new global content into America.”

    Good news!

    • El Cid

      Once again, Americans show they are NOT like Europeans.

      This was not a ‘right wing’ conspiracy, but grass roots America rejecting a message aimed at undermining their way of life.

      America would no more accept Al Jezeera than they would a Nazi channel.

  • Paresh B. Patel

    Al Gore must be laughing all the way to the Bank. He sold them an over-priced Lemon of a TV Station. Al Jazeera filled its ranks with Ex BBC Journo-Activists.

    • iprazhm

      I remember Glenn Beck’s group tried to buy the station when he first left Fox, and he bid higher than Al Jazeera, but Gore refused to sell to him!

      • joe1429

        Wow i didnt know that! Shame on gore

    • Wulf2000

      My understanding is Al Gore did not receive the full payment of $500 million and has taken Al Jazeera to court for breach of contract. It is good news Al Gore was shafted.

      • joe1429

        I think al gore is buying too much food with the money,lol. He is like 400lbs, now

  • Commieobamie

    Well…in TRUTH… I think we did it by actually NEVER EVER watching the pile of obama network.

  • Sandie Maldonado

    Great news!

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    Excelsior indeed!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    O deary dear, now who will do the call to prey from the white mosque?

    • Millionmileman

      Well, we now Swedish news instead!


      a response to mine!

      January 13 at 10:17am And how about Israelis killing thousands of innocent kids, women & civilians & stealing their land?! You are a big bully for making statements like the above! Move to Israel & call it the day! Simple! Tack Sweden for sticking up for the weak of the society!

      • Millionmileman

        I forgot another ignorant response to mine, below.


        Europe is merely dealing with the mess your government created with the help of your biggest ally Uncle Sam. Ever since migrant crisis began, Hasbara trolls together with their right-wing neo-Nazi friends are spreading hateful propaganda all over social media to distract everyone from Israeli crimes. Your police, army and government runs on US taxpayers $$$. The day an average American woke up will be the end of Israeli apartheid. Every illegal settler will be brought to justice.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          The cowardly lying socialist lame stream media refuses to inform the public of the facts, especially the crimes committed by the subhuman creatures they let in pretending they are muslim refugees. They are maggots.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Sweden allows rapes, violence against Jews and infidels while protecting subhuman creatures that will destroy Sweden given any chance, yet still the dhimmis support them. And the Swedish lame stream noose tightens around Sweden’s citizens by not telling the facts.

        • Millionmileman

          We are upping the ante! If a trade war ensues then there will be no Volvo or Scania trucks to deliver all the Israel supplies going into Gaza. This includes tunnel cement!


          • Mahou Shoujo

            If you want to get someone’s especially in a position of authorities attention, kick them in the finances. That gets fast action if there is the risk of losing money.

          • Millionmileman

            The trouble is, Israel needs the exports to Sweden, including defense.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Politics makes for strange bedfellows.

        • Po Tato

          Sweden and Germany are already in my ‘country which I will not visit’ list

          Why should I visit (and spend my money) in a country which kow-tow to the savages?

      • Mr Paul Middleton

        You blithering know-nothing anti-Semite!
        The Koran, sura 5:60: “Jews are apes and pigs.” Close to one million Jews have been killed or exiled from Muslim lands since 1948. We stand resolutely and proudly with Israel.

        • Millionmileman

          Paul I hope you are addressing your reply to the person who I pasted his anti-Semitic response to mine which is beneath the Ynet article.

          • Mr Paul Middleton

            No, my addressing you as an anti-Semite was intentional. You said, “…how about Israelis killing thousands of innocent kids, women & civilians & stealing their land?!” (sic). Try some balance if you don’t want to be accused of anti-Semitism. Israel offers sanctuary to some Arabs, whilst Gaza and Palestine offers no such thing to Jews but has always adhered to the Islamic Jew-hatred in their Koran.

          • Millionmileman

            Paul, you need to do 2 things, first take a course in British English which is very sarcastic (if you studied Shakespeare) because if you read what I was posting instead of diving in with your pre-determined hate you would have read that I was deliberately posting (with a disclosure) that this was the Anti-Semitic hate posted on the Swedish Facebook page of The Local. This was an example to show what is being written about Israel, even without Al-Jazeera. As a Pro-Israel advocate, I post articles to show the Anti-Israel rubbish out on the Internet.

            If you have read my numerous, past, postings on Pamella’s site you would have seen I am one of Israel’s greatest supporters. Likewise nearly everyone on this site replies in favour of my comments.

            The second thing that I request is an apology which I will accept because I am Jewish, hold an Israel Passport and served in the IDF for over 3 years, including fighting for Israel’s very existence during the Yom Kippur War, in 1973.

            Either apologize to me or don’t bother responding. By the way there was also another Anti-Semitic reply to my post on the Local above the one you are quoting here.

          • Mr Paul Middleton

            That’s fine then. I feel bound to reply your post wasn’t clear. I read it three times. Sometimes less isn’t more, less is less. In the case of your post, insufficient – I believe.
            My grammar, comprehension and vocabulary are beyond competent. I accept what you meant though, of course.
            Let’s see what happens, see if anyone else misreads it.

          • Millionmileman

            Paul thank for you apology which I fully accept. If you were in town I would take you out for a beer! This happened 2 week’s ago with someone else who dove into me without reading my actually defense of Israel. It was that article about the F-16 blasting the call to prayer.

            If you go on The Local Facebook (same Avitar, different name) things are heating up over Margot Wallström and those 2 characters I quoted!

  • Judi

    Together with Pamela and other patriots, Kudos to Florida Family Association who had a lot to do with its demise. The CEO’s of advertisers were inundated with thousands of e-mails, detailing why they should not advertise on the channel and it has obviously worked

    • iprazhm

      Agreed. My hat’s off to patriots who dropped cable all together and told their cable companies this vile station was the reason why!

    Al Jihad goes back to the sewer from whence it came.

    The Bore accidentally did something patriotic.

  • chris wolf

    I think some of their staff is formerly quasi-respectable American journalists, David Schuster is a name I recall. I guess it didn’t prove a far leap from NPR to this vile cesspool. I hope they all go straight to obama welfare for the remainder of their days.

    Knew it from the beginning. We average Joe’s and Jill’s knew this was nothing more than a propaganda front for militant and radical Islam. Buh Bye now!!

    Excellent news!

    Weird, kinda looks like a gift to AlGore, but then they stiffed him for 65 million didn’t they? http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/al-jazeera-responds-al-gores-734389
    Or did they?

  • Jesse Carpenter II

    Excellent news!

    Thank goodness Hillary’s favorite channel is leaving! WOO HOO! And take her with ya!

  • Fred Sawyer

    Don’t let the door hit you in the rear savages!

  • scocope

    This is great news for MSNBC! Their prime time line-up is extremely weak; with AJ shutting down there will be many opportunities to hire talent that will fit right in and further their mission of bashing America.

  • Jeanne Ballard

    Hallelujah! Praise the Lord and pass the biscuits

    Best news yet for 2016- Happy New Year, America!

  • Ron rockit

    Now if we can get RT off the air…..

    • meangirl

      RT is Putin’s propaganda, however MSNBC is worse. Marxist propaganda by Anti-American, “Americans”(traitors)

  • got243kids

    Al Jazeera TV – Cair and Challenged propaganda.

  • Victor Redlick

    Without Al “Gore” Jazeera being allowed to infiltrate the western news media – the despicable likes of Canadian “craftsmen” Tony Burton and Avi Lewis originally fronted its now imminent North American demise, come this April, Inshallah! – the (obviously NOT) “too big to fail” Doha network wouldn’t have had anywhere near the same conclusive, negative impact. Pure schadenfreude! Thanks to Gore – the very ridiculed Democratic loser to George Bush – the world knows what a fraud both he -Tipper’s ex – and the Sheikh of Qatar are. Who might be angrier? Sheikh al Thani at Gore, for his – as it has turned out – $100 million CURRENT TV flim flam caper, or Mexico’s Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman at Judas, Sean Penn, for leading the authorities to recapture the world’s #1 drug fugitive? What a “mug’s game” on both accounts!

  • Jandre Kroeze

    Perhaps you shouldnt be so quick to declare victory before the all knowing and all seeing Most High. Your false prophet is mentioned in our Scriptures also and nothing good is in store for him and his following. Morover he has maggots in his mouth, even now in the torturous place he finds himself in. Malik Al-Amlak is returning soon and only He brings true Victory. Yes your alah/azazel fears Him greatly also. This demonic cult of azazel shall be forever removed from the earth by Malik Al-Amlak forever and never be found again in His everlasting Kingdom. Yes. you have no Peace and you shall forever never find peace ever. The messenger is NOT important! Just the message is.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      Islam, maggots in a dung heap, when muslims crawl across a rock, their trail of slime forms the words of the qur’an. All muslims who believe the hate it spews will never get close to the truth, in life, or death.

  • meangirl

    About time!

  • meangirl

    One less propaganda channel for Democrats.

  • Brad Clary

    Praise (the REAL) GOD!

  • Rob Porter

    Fantastic, Pamela!

  • Robert

    Actually, it isn’t completely closing down, it is switching to online content. AJAM is much better and much more honest than right winged Fox. And this blog spreads pure propaganda: Al Jazeera Media Network isn’t aligned with Hamas or whatever.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      LOL. I hope you’re being sarcastic, otherwise you’re an idiot, a very bad muslum liar or some combination of the two.

      • Robert

        I am not a muslim. I am a hindu. Please show me credible evidence that Al Jazeera is aligned with Hamas (ie a news network or an official statement etc). Do you actually think Fox isn’t know for being a right wing slightly biased and fear mongering organisation?

  • This is the best news I have heard so far this year.

  • No Quarter

    That news show sucked anyway and no one watched it anyway. Good riddance. islam=submit or die

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    I guess izlamic-nazi figured they don’t need Al Jizyeera considering they already have MSNBC and the Crescent News Network. After all, how many islamic propaganda outlets do they need to fund?

  • joe1429

    Nice!! Yes i agree, Al gore, got the last laff, lol 500 mil. the muzzies paid him

  • Michael B

    Baruch HaShem Adonai!

  • Uselesscrap

    Fatso Gore: what a pig!

  • I never watched the television network. Their website and twitter feed have international stories I don’t end up hearing about anywhere else. It’s so hard finding anywhere that puts out good and comprehensive, non-US-centric international news. I hope their online presence continues.

    • JoeySixPack

      the Aljazeera network wasn’t very international when I watched it. certainly not their investigation programs.

  • Jaem

    Victory!! Yah! Good Job Pamela!

  • Reagan40

    America, the west, the world will win over Islam. Islam will loose and crawl back like a crooked serpent to the two mosques of Mecca and Medina where it came from. Death to Islam! Long live our beautiful planet!!
