Al Jazeera English is covering Egypt protests non-stop

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Last week when the unrest in Egypt erupted, American television networks scrambled to move reporters there. But one news operation was already there providing around-the-clock coverage. Al Jazeera English is available through an online stream in the U.S., and has been providing continuous coverage.

The coverage is immediate and without commercial breaks. The product is raw in nature and compared to American news coverage, perhaps more biting.

In the past few days, Al Jazeera's live stream has attracted 1.6 million American viewers. Along with imbedded reporters in Egypt, coverage includes reports from the White House.

Years ago Al Jazeera was branded as anti-America, but it's now landing interviews with U.S. congressmen and turning heads.
