Inevitability of Innovation- Part 2

The U.S. news media has been getting a huge smackdown from Al Jazeera with regard to the coverage of what is happening in Egypt.  President Obama and Hilary Clinton aren't watching CNN.  Al Jazeera's website has become the primary source of information as to what is happening, and guess what, it's a free stream of their live broadcast.  Apparently, people would rather try to understand the struggle of oppressed people in a vital region more than they'd like to see Kim Kardashian be interviewed by Piers Morgan or watch John Boehner weep for the 800th time in public.

Insight: Shopping is fun

Al Jazeera, to the best of my knowledge, is not available on any U.S. cable providers, even though it is a  credible news provider and tends toward harder news, as opposed to personality journalism.
