Channelling Anger

A more open political era
Is suddenly beckoning nearer
In a Mideast redoubt
We know little about,
Which happens to help Al-Jazeera.  

Internet viewership of the Al-Jazeera English service, with its live coverage from Tunis, Cairo and other hot spots, has risen 2500% since the recent wave of Arab popular rebellion began, as reported by the Huffington Post. Up to now, almost no US cable TV providers have carried the channel due to lack of demand (and fear of backlash), although the Arabic-language AJ channel is carried in quite a few US markets.
