Al Jazeera could join the Pacifica Radio network

Pacifica Radio, which runs KPFK in Los Angeles and four other public-radio stations around the country, is in talks with Al Jazeera Network to broadcast the Persian Gulf-based news service in the United States, the Washington Post reports.

From the story:
If an agreement is reached, Pacifica would become the biggest American broadcaster to air Al Jazeera, whose news reports have at times drawn criticism from Western governments, including the Bush administration during the early days of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Al Jazeera is perhaps best known for being the first network to broadcast video communiques from Osama bin Laden after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
