Request Al Jazeera from your televison provider

From today’s live blog:

4.27pm: A Libyan airforce plane has crashed near Benghazi after the crew bailed out, the country’s Quryna Newspaper reports. The newspaper said the crew had orders to bomb Benghazi, but refused to carry them out.

4.17pm: Major General Suleiman Mahmoud, a commander in Libyan army in Tobruk, is now on the side of the Libyan people. He called Gaddafi “a tyrant” and told Al Jazeera “the people in the army are steadfast” in the city.

My own provider is DirecTV. If you also have DirecTV, why not add your voice to mine?

Go to directv.com and log in. Under “My Account”, click “My Profile”. Write down your account number. Then go to the contact form. Fill in your contact info including your account number. Choose “Programming -> Suggestions” as the Topic. For the Subject, I suggest something like “Please add Al Jazeera English”.

Note that LinkTV (channel 375 on DirecTV) occasionally carries Al Jazeera English. And of course there is the Web feed. But I figure if it is jammed in Libya, surely it deserves to be broadcast in the U.S.
