Which is why I watch the BBC when I want to get the world news. I don't have to listen to the illiterate biased talking heads on MSNBC and Fox News.

If you think the channel is awful, don't watch it.  Set your parental controls.  I think The Blaze is detestable.  I don't want it on my FiOS, but if they add The Blaze I will not watch it unless I want to make an up-to-date list of its misinformation.  What if Verizon compromised and added both The Blaze and Al Jazeera America? You can go into parental controls and block the channel you don't like and I can do the same with The Blaze (and I'm a Nielsen family).

Hello there mytime, welcome to the Verizon forums (this is a peer-to-peer forum, where users help other users)

 

Anyway, if you do not wish to be exposed to Al Jazeera's content, I suggest you to use parental controls. If you do not have a Parental Controls PIN, you will need to create it.

 

  1. Press the Menu button on your remote control.
     
  2. Select Settings.
     
  3. Select Parental/Purchase.
     
  4. Enter your Parental Controls PIN.
     
  5. Select Parental Preferences.

         To lock or unlock all channels:
         Select Lock All or Unlock All and press OK.

         To lock or unlock specific channels:
         Select Block by Channel > Add or Remove Channels.
         From there you can select to Lock AllUnlock All, or
         select specific channel(s) that you’d like to lock or unlock

 

Hope this helps.

 What is it that makes you think Al Jazeera is anti-American?

 

This new channel is based out of NYC and will have coverage tailored for the American audience.  Right now they're airing a special on the channel interviewing a lot of the staff and the vast majority of them aren't even arab.

More like ignorance. I'm sure if only he would do some research he would find it isn't the anti-American hate parade he imagines it to be.

I find it hilarious that the same people crying about how unAmerican Al-Jazeera is are the same people crying about Verizon not carrying BlazeTV (which isn't even a real network - its a subscription based website for Glenn Beck's army of {please keep your posts courteous}).  

 

It's about time Verizon gives those of us with an IQ over 70 an actual channel to watch REAL news.  Al-Jazeera America is far superior to ALL the American corporate owned crap media, that do nothing but spew a partisan perspective or the celebrity trial of the week.
