AT&T Playing Politics with Al Jazeera America?

Al Jazeera, the Middle Eastern based news service, has filed a lawsuit against AT&T for wrongful termination of contract. AT&T was under contract to carry the launch of Al Jazeera America news service on U-verse pay-TV service on Tuesday.

Globally, Al Jazeera is seen in more than 260 million homes in 130 countries. But the new U.S. channel has so far had difficulty getting distributors, in part because Al Jazeera was perceived by some as being anti-American during the Iraq war.
