Aljazeera Still the Best TV News

After clicking around the TV channels, I still believe that Aljazeera has the best general news coverage, mostly because it has the best foreign coverage.  Aljazeera still seems to have correspondents stationed around the globe.  The US networks don’t seem to have anybody outside of a few major cities in each continent, basically London and Beijing.  South America, Africa, and Australia don’t seem to rate correspondents.  The US networks have lots of news about weather in the US, because they can use reporters from local affiliates standing out in the rain, wind, or snow.  The people who are affected can look outside and see for themselves what is going on.  Charlie Rose interviewed a “Vice” correspondent, Ben Anderson, who was scathing in his criticism of US networks’ coverage of foreign news.
