Al Jazeera America Floundering Amid Low Ratings


Since its August 20 launch to 40 million US homes Al Jazeera America's TV channel has only averaged 13,000 viewers a day nationwide, equivalent to a public access channel, reports the New York Post.

Al Jazeera, which is owned and funded by the government of Qatar, bought the channel in January for $500 million from former US Vice President Al Gore, replacing his Current TV channel.
