Bad News: Al Jazeera

The Pacifica Radio Network will cease distribution of Al Jazeera English in August 2013.  It is part of a reorganization of Al Jazeera in anticipation of their debut on U.S. television as Al Jazeera America.  This may lead to a reorganization of the news schedule here at WNJR too--more on that soon.
