Alhurra… “Today” – KABOBfest Logo. & Free Media Online Blog, May 11, 2009, San Francisco — What viewers are subjected to during Alhurra’s version of primetime are three hours of mindless chatter interspersed with shallow assessments of selected current events and random feature stories (some of which are marginally entertaining). There is no depth in the news coverage, nor in the rest of the programming. Rather, there is a failed attempt at fast-paced US-style news that comes off as chaotic and incoherent. The on-air talent seem to be taking their jobs rather lightly. It’s awkward and unprofessional, but who can blame them? It’s not like there are that many people watching. More from KABOBfest
