Human Rights Watch’s Nadim Houry speaks to Al Jazeera English about the group’s recent report on torture in Syria — which included as many as 20 separate types of torture, committed by both opposition groups and groups loyal to the Syrian government. Houry says the victims were mostly men between 18 and 35, but some women, children and elderly were among the tortured. This is just a talking-head interview, but hearing what he’s saying? Man. Harrowing stuff.

There is increasing confirmation that Gaddhafi has indeed been captured. Al Jazeera English is reporting that Libyan TV is reporting his capture. 

Will be curious as to see what comes of all this. No offense to the NTC, but we’ve been burned before.

Editorial priorities are weighed on a number of factors at any given moment. All news organizations have faced these pressures, but despite this and the challenging terrain in Bahrain, we have covered events in the country extensively.

When Al Jazeera isn’t focused on news, they’re focused on kids. The network has had a children’s programming offshoot for half a decade in the Middle East, and now they want to bring it over to the U.S. as the Al Jazeera Children’s Channel. Their hope? That the edutainment network’s high-minded approach to kid’s shows might be able to earn them some TV play outside of the traditional silo of international news. For what it’s worth, above is their test pattern. It’s pretty cute. (via negevrockcity) source

In fact viewership of al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and, you know, arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which, you know, is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners.

Al Jazeera in Talks With Comcast, Time Warner | Fast Company
Al Jazeera English may be coming to American television screens. The Qatar-based network is currently in talks with cable giants Comcast and Time Warner, creating a groundswell of enthusiasm among American news junkies and a collective groan from right-leaning conservative activists. At the moment, Al Jazeera English is only available on a handful of local cable outlets in Washington, D.C., Burlington, Vt., and a few other locales.

See, that’s what happens when you capture the attention of the Interwebs.
