Ghana: Al-Jazeera in English in Ghana

Ghanians are watching Al-Jazeera in English, “Here in Ghana, Metro TV has been showing live programming of Al-Jazeera for many hours, everyday. At least, we now have news and views from another perspective, as opposed to the western propaganda we were hitherto being bombarded with, by BBC World, CNN and DW-TV.”
