    Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

    During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel's business model was "no longer sustainable." It will shut down by April 30.

    Heart breaking. I'm at a huge loss as this has been my home for news since it's launch. I am glad it sounds like Al Jazeera English will become available again online through the various means (ie: mobile apps). I am going to miss the benefits of Al Jazeera America being around namely the stronger reporting on state side news.
