Someone's finally noticed Al-Jazeera's box at the convention:
The network has a Washington bureau, and reporters have White House access and cover Congress. Al-Jazeera, which will be affiliated with ABC during the DNC, has 16 staffers covering the convention who will work out of a FleetCenter skybox alongside ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and Fox.Looks like ABC will take the hit, not the DNC, especially given that the RNC will also have AJ in the box. All's well.
The 24-hour news channel covered the 2000 conventions from the streets with a staff of three, Thomas said. The network also will have a box at the Republican National Convention at New York's Madison Square Garden next month.
