Al Jazeera signed a commercial agreement with Google last week to share advertising revenue on their YouTube channel
Since many of the wingutteria consider Al Jazeera the voice of the enemy, one just might have to laugh at the irony. After all, You Tube is very much an American phenomenon that has captured the world's imagination and interest. And yet the Republican candidates for president were afraid to go to You Tube.
Afraid, or simply just too clueless.
Now we can anticipate seeing wise thought leaders like Bill O'Reilly call You Tube an Al Jazeera front, or use rhetoric of that ilk. Nothing like the tail wagging the dog. The way Republicans keep cowering from the realities of this world, is it any wonder they're excusing themselves from any realistic consideration for leading this world?

“There’s nothing on”, he said. And walked away.
What would “something” be?
“Oh, you know. Like on YouTube”.
