The Al-Saga continues...



Fresh off the recent recommendations from the citizen advisory committees that Al Jazeera English be kept on the air on Burlington Telecom, the Defenders Council of Vermont has scheduled a press conference for 11 a.m. Thursday, July 3 in Burlington City Hall Auditorium, asking that the matter go to a public referendum in the November general election.

According to a Defenders Council of Vermont press release, the referendum will read as follows:'Should Burlington Telecom enter into a contract with Al Jazeera English, provided reasonable and agreeable terms can be reached by Burlington Telecom management?'

Great. More media fireworks just in time for Independence Day.
