How Al Jazeera America Aims to Cover More Than ‘Political Three-Ring Circuses’

mediabistrotv_1

In the latest video from MediabistroTV’s “What’s Your Show?” series, we look at Al Jazeera America’s primetime newscast with TV news veteran John Seigenthaler, which airs at 8pmET weeknights.

The news start-up has many current and former DCers on its roster. Network President Kate O’Brian and SVP of news David Doss used to work out of the nation’s capital. “Inside Story” host Ray Suarez, “America Tonight” host Joie Chen, White House Correspondent Mike Viqueira, and Senior Executive Producer Kim Bondy all currently work from DC.

And Seigenthaler, who is based in New York, tells FishbowlDC that AJAM’s mission is quite “radical”: providing unbiased, in-depth journalism. His show’s Sr. EP, Mary Caraccioli, tell us AJAM offers something different than the cable competition covering the “political three-ring circuses.”
