I'm going to be interviewed tomorrow on Al Jazeera America and I wanted to alert you if you were interested in seeing it.

After the Harpers story on older Americans forced onto the road many news agencies have picked up the story. Jess Bruder, the author of the Harpers story will be on and several other people. In a later segement the Technomadia couple will be on later.

I don't even understand how or where to see it, you are on your own to figure that out. Here is the website for the show:

Very cool. Break a leg!

Don’t let them try to coerce you to join the Taliban!
I have no idea if this is correct, but I've noticed every station has a bias. FOX to the right, TYT to the left, RT towards Russia. Is it possible that All Jazeera is looking for ways to put the U.S. down? I've never read/seen any of their publications, so I have not a clue.

Again, not ttying to be political. Be well Bob.
I first watched Al Jazeera English after the 2011 Tsunami for the excellent commercial free coverage, and continued watching afterward, because their world news is actually World news and surprisingly unbiased.

The crap we see on ABC CBS NBC or whatever is simply horrid crap and a just way to sway public opinion and force pharmaceutical commercials on the public to get them to act as paying Guinea pigs. Main stream Media in this country is disgusting.

I urge all people to watch as many outside news sources as possible to get a wider perspective.

You don't have to take every source as gospel but getting a Non American opinion is enlightening

I used to stream AJE online but they took it off for some reason.

I'll watch any Foreign news service over what passes for world news on any of the major affiliates in this country. PBS stations seem to have a lot from Japan, Germany Britain, China, Holland.

I used to watch RT online too, but more recently every time I did so my email account got highjacked and spam with .ru link was sent to all my contacts.

Have fun with it Bob. Hope they portray you correctly when edited. Sadly, I'd trust AJE to do it better than any of our networks.

Totally agree with you. I watch BBC very often and sometimes France24 English, but actually havn't thought about tuning in Al Jazeera yet. As you say, in my opinion it's very improtant to get outside views on especially political topics.
I came across a chart about the comparison of trustworthiness of different TV stations, amongst others Al Jazeera. unfortunately it's just for the UK, would be very interested if there would exist such a comparison for US stations.
Thank you, SternWake.

I'm most happy to hear that! I too distrust US news. (FOX makes me wanna puke.) I've also been told the others aren't much better, so I rarely watch. I will look up AJE as I truly would enjoy some truth in my news. Your knowledge was invaluable in this situation, and for that I thank you.

Be well friends, and go get 'em Bob. Wink
Was wondering if the Harpers article would catch attention. It's spun towards telling everyone it's horrible to live on the road as a SOCIAL SECURITY or less income retired person. Think we need more news about how to be creative with alternative economy. This AJ interview is a start.
The Al Jazeera America website says,
"...join the conversation Monday, September 15 at 12:30 p.m."
Cyndi - looks like a show broadcast on that channel called THE STREAM at 12:30 eastern time (just after noon). So set for September 15 date.
