I'm glad someone mentioned Al Jazeera.
forgot to mention them, but the past few years I've picked up AJE and Univision America for sourcing almost anything that is non-domestic.
and lately they shine through on domestic issues stronger than domestic sources. PBS and NPR are also putting the old networks to shame.
but Al Jazeera and Univision have surprised me, in a pleasant way of course.
has anyone watched Jorge Ramos on his new show on Fusion TV? they're trying to be a 'Nu Media' destination for young people. their programming is heavily about social issues with a relatively clear Liberal slant including a lot of satire and informal discussion.
Jorge Ramos is a bad ass in case anyone hadn't noticed...
I haven't checked his new show, but I've seen him in Al Punto and in the regular news back in the day. I love him sooo much lol he's so badass. And he's not all that liberal from what I've seen of him, he's just a very, VERY heavy supporter of immigration reform, as it's the #1 issue among Hispanics. I'm not sure about the network or show, though.
I really love his way of interviewing -- no bullsh*t, he gets straight to the point (al punto) and calls bullsh*t out. Did you see the Rahm Emmanuel one? Emmanuel got pissed haha. The dude kept changing the subject, and Ramos kept reminding him "you and Obama promised to do this." By the end he was just like "shut up and let me keep changing the subject."
The guy is also one of the hardest working people in the industry -- he's doing a TON of projects. There's a Daily Show interview with him going over what he's doing, it's pretty neat. He's absolutely, without a doubt my #1 journalist.
