Recently, somewhat inexplicably, the Al Jazeera English news channel disappeared or was dropped by Cable Bahamas Limited even as the Doha (Qatar) based network is dramatically increasing its presence in the US.
It is entirely possible that this columnist missed public announcements by Cable Bahamas regarding the sudden disappearance of Al Jazeera. Perhaps there was a timely notification on its website or through a press release or a scroll on channel 419 where the news channel once appeared?
It is unclear the reasons for the blackout of this major news organization that continues to expand its global reach. Some have been told that there are technical problems. Others have been informed that the channel may reappear depending on the number of people interested in its return.
How curious the conflicting explanations. The company’s public relations shop may wish to get everyone reading from the same talking points.
