A Joke? Al Jazeera Launching Right-Leaning News Outlet Called Rightly

Al Jazeera, the Qatar-funded media company, wants to build a new audience among American Conservatives, as it prepares to launch a news platform called Rightly. The digital venture pairs the Arab company with political commentators such as Stephen Kent, who will host an interview-based show on the platform.

“Onward and upward,” tweeted Yaser Bishr, digital executive director for Al Jazeera Media Network, as he shared a story about the launch.

Kent’s show will debut on Thursday, according to Politico, which first reported on Al Jazeera’s new venture. The outlet’s goal, Politico’s Playbook states, is to lure “center-right folks who feel left out of mainstream media.” Rightly’s editor-in-chief will reportedly be Scott Norvell, a veteran of Fox News.

In an email to NPR, Kent said he wants his show, called Right Now, to host discussions about how ideas such as classical liberalism can fit into today’s political environment. It will not be, he said, yet another arena for fights between Democrats and Republicans – or even between old-school Republicans and supporters of former President Donald Trump.

Jihad Watch reports: Qatar is the funder behind the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups, it’s an ally of Iran and its royal family has links to September 11.  Al Jazeera became a key element in forging a link between the Left and Islamists while driving coverage by the mainstream media about events such as the Islamist takeover in Egypt, Israel’s battles with Hamas, the War on Terror, and the famine in Yemen, not to mention Qatari agent, Jamal Khashoggi.

Conservatives – will you be making Al Jazeera your new home page?

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
