Egyptian uprising boosts Al Jazeera English

Al Jazeera English saw its North American numbers rise dramatically as it pushed its advantage of covering Arab/Muslim issues to the rest of the world. Too bad hardly anyone gets it or wants to get it. The only other broadcaster providing a nonWestern view of the world is APTN News, which takes an aboriginal perspective on stuff. Whether its US news, BBC, Agence France Presse or whatever, it’s still western.
