The C.E.O. of Al Jazeera America, Ehab Al-Shihabi, reassured staff that the company was invested in the long-term for the channel, and argued that the U.S. was moving towards "a golden age of global news."
In a memo sent to staff of the channel this week, obtained by Capital, Al-Shihabi compared the launch of AJAM to "build[ing] an airplane in mid-flight" and thanked the staff. He also emphasized that the company was focused on the long-game.
