Aljazeera English date set

Aljazeera confirmed that Aljazeera English will start broadcasting 15th Nov 06, and there will be an Aljazeera Magazine. Unlike the obscure beginnings of Aljazeera Arabic, the English channel has been anticipated for many months and millions are eager to finally watch Aljazeera (most of Aljazeera's critics don't speak Arabic and are relying on secondary information, not anymore). Aljazeera English will not be the same as the Arabic as they're catering for different audience and major competitors like CNN and BBC are keeping a close eye on it - happy anniversary Aljazeera.
