CNN's 'Reliable Sources' takes on Al Jazeera America's first week

Al Jazeera Media NetworkCNN (tv network)


Al Jazeera America's premiere week was one of the topics discussed on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday.

Eric Deggans, a longtime friend and colleague, was guest host. Mohammed el-Nawawy, author of "Al-Jazeera: The Story of the Network that is Rattling Governments and Redefining Modern Journalism," and I were guests.

My argument: Al Jazeera America, with its emphasis on diversity and identification with non-elite populations, expands the conversation of democracy in mainstream media. And that's a good thing.

Check it out.
