    Hmm, a new news outlet with a Middle Eastern name in a niche Fox News dominates. What could go wrong?

    Every once in a while I would tune in looking for former C-SPAN host Libby Casey. Never found here. Don't know if she's still there or not.

    But from the beginning, Al Jazeera America has been beset by lousy ratings and internal strife. Two former employees filed lawsuits last year against the company with charges of anti-Semitism and sexism in the newsroom.

    Shocking that such accusations would be made against a Qatari owned company.

    Or any media company for that matter.

    I thought Jews controlled the media.

    I thought from the start they should have changed the name and was pretty sure it would never last. It's not like al Jazeera had any sort of reputation in America. Watched a couple of times and wasn't that impressed, and that name assured that a decent segment of our population would never watch.
