Burlington on Al Jazeera English

by

3 comments

Seven Days, VPR, the Burlington Free Press and other local media have covered Burlington Telecom's attempt to drop Al Jazeera English from its cable TV line-up.

Now you can add Al Jazeera English to the list of media outlets reporting on the debate.

The Arab news network aired this 12-minute segment on Friday. They sent a local camera crew from Channel 17 to interview Seven Days staffer Ken Picard a couple weeks ago. So of course when it aired, a group of us clustered around Ken's laptop to watch the live stream.

Lots of other locals make appearances, including Sandy Baird, Sam Mayfield and Bill Simmon.
