Al Jazeera reaches out to US

Qatar’s Al Jazeera Media Network has acquired US cable Current TV to create Al Jazeera America.

The new 24h channel will be headquartered in New York City to reach out to two thirds of the US population and thus rival the top three channels such as Fox News, CNN and MSNBC.

The cost of the acquisition has not been revealed.
