A Jewish Al Jazeera?
There has been some talk lately of the development of a news organization to serve as the Jewish alternative to Al Jazeera. Israeli billionaire Alexander Machkevitch has stepped up to the plate to finance this endeavor, but is there enough support? In this article from the Jewish Week, Machkevitch noted that “every day we see that information is more powerful than military troops or weapons...so many networks provide information that divides people. We want to provide information that will unite people.” What a noble idea... Also take a look at this more recent article, which attempts to analyze the viability of the project in terms of sustainability and global relevance.
