Al Jazeera makes stunning big announcement about Al Jazeera America

[sharenow]

After two years, Al Jazeera has announced it’s throwing in the towel on the United States market. Odds are good that Trump will be blamed for running them out.

Here is the official statement released Wednesday:

Separately, Al Anstey, CEO of Al Jazeera America, today announced that Al Jazeera America will cease operation by April 30, 2016. While Al Jazeera America built a loyal audience across the US and increasingly was recognised as an important new voice in television news, the economic landscape of the media environment has driven its strategic decision to wind down its operations and conclude its service. Al Jazeera America is committed to conducting this process in a way that is consistent with its respect for colleagues.

We recognise the high quality of Al Jazeera America’s work and that its journalism was recognised with nearly every major award an American broadcast and digital news organisation can receive, including the Peabody, Emmy, and Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University awards.

Anstey said: “I have witnessed and worked alongside some of the most talented people any organisation could wish for. Since its launch in 2013, the work done by the team at Al Jazeera America has been recognised with nearly every major award an American news organisation can receive. I greatly respect the unrivalled commitment and excellent work of our team, which has created great journalism. We have increasingly set ourselves apart from all the rest, and the achievements of the past two-and-a-half years should be a source of immense pride for everyone.”
