Al Jazeera English is fighting to stay on the airwaves in America highlighting the broader struggles for free speech and media diversity. In the American City of Burlington, Al Jazeera is  being accused of hate mongering towards Americans and Israeli's. The Israeli Centre of Vermont wants Al Jazeera banned for being anti-semetic. Ironically, Al Jazeera is aired in Israel without objection.

The Burlington local authority has held public hearings to discuss the issue and will decide in a few weeks whether the news network will be allowed to stay on the airwaves.
