The Stream, Al-Jazeera’s interactive news and social media programme, will sport a new on-air look in the next few weeks. We can expect – at the least – to see on-air talent seated closely together and eradicating any sense of disjointedness. What appears to be a mini-relaunch will not only enhance the show, but make it more visually appealing.
The Stream is an innovative show to be watched. It offers a voice to an ever-growing online audience that has instant say in the show’s output – making the process of shaping the news agenda seem refreshingly democratic. You should equate The Stream with Helios. It can illuminate our minds and shine the light on all those un-told stories filled with moral and social injustice. But it has the ability to highlight all those common stories that are about our humanity and that bind us together.
