Al Jazeera America is continuing its quick expansion onto the American media landscape, announcing Thursday that it’s opening a new bureau in Detroit, ahead of the channel’s official launch later this year.
“We want our reporters to be where the stories are and Detroit continues to be where American business stories and trends are happening,” Ehab Al Shihabi, Al Jazeera executive director of international operations, said in a statement Thursday. “Al Jazeera America knows that you have to have on-the-ground reporting from the Motor City to really cover America’s economic, financial and socially important news and we’re excited about being here.”
News of the Detroit bureau comes after the Qatar-owned news network announced earlier this week that it was also opening a Chicago bureau.
Al Jazeera America will be headquartered in New York City with additional offices throughout the U.S. According to Politico, 12 bureaus are planned: New York, Washington, Miami, Nashville, Chicago, New Orleans, Detroit, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle.
Al Jazeera purchased Al Gore’s low-rated Current TV earlier this year.

A comment I like and thus showcase:

    •    I’m making my very best shocked face I can muster.
      This was kind of expected, I’d say. Dearborn, MI has been overrun with muslims, and Detroit is a big lib lefty union town (what’s left of it.) Land/housing is dirt cheap. Would make a great city for, oh, say, millions upon millions of lunatic extremist muslims to move to and set up their global caliphate.

      God warned Israel to keep their land pure, and now we see what disobedience does. God knew what he was talkin’ about – He’s omniscient, ya know. He knew Israel was/would be surrounded by murderous lunatics driven by hate and envy. Makes you wonder WHY God chose THAT land for Israel? (I’ll add it to my list of questions for Him.)
      Lord forgive us and help us triumph over evil… or come back soon!
