Al Jazeera Bid For Channel 4

Al Jazeera have launched a bid to take control of the UK broadcaster Channel 4.

Full story here.

A Channel 4 spokesman has said that "This offer is not to be dismissed".

I, on the other hand, am absolutely fucking speechless.

That is all!

If it comes about then perhaps we ought to insist that ITV becomes a "white channel" and has only white people on it...

Have you ever watched aljazeera? It happens to be one of the only news stations that allows opinions from all sides.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Yes, I have to agree, Aljazeera is a pretty reliable source of information, even for a pissed up old cunt like me.

Oh my fucking God! Are you SERIOUS? I agree with Sue re: ITV! This is a scandel of the highest order. Something must be done!

it's either banned or compulsory said...

I am completly serious, we still live in a freeish, capitalist-style post-democratic state and if Aljazeera want to buy up wank-ridden ITV then good luck to it.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Anyone else wanna spout the wrong opinion then ?

Wankers.

I work for Al Jazeera in London.
I'm a white british and agnostic.

I'd sooner see Al Jazeera have a major share of Ch4 than Murdoch.

You small minded idiots should really work out the difference between a Muslin extremist and a Muslim.

It's like saying all Catholics are members of the IRA, real, continuity or otherwise .....
