September 11, 2001 was a day of anger and grief. But perhaps the
overriding emotion after 9/11 was confusion. Like the smoke obscuring the
skyline of lower Manhattan, Americans seemed to live in a fog of disorientation.
As the smoke cleared, we began to ask ourselves disturbing questions. What
happened and why? What is the cause for the attacks? Are we somehow responsible?
Why do “they” hate us?
Certainly, the big cable networks gave us the who, where and when —
often in gory detail. But what about the why and how? There was
another side to the story that wasn’t making it onto the nightly news. We knew
America wasn’t seeing the whole picture.
Here at Link, we knew we had to find other perspectives on the events
that contributed to 9/11. That’s why we launched our program Mosaic: World News from the Middle East. Almost 10 years
later, Mosaic continues to serve as a vital link to the region for
you and millions of Americans.
Today, Link continues to provide the best news coverage from across
North Africa and the Mideast, including reports from Al Jazeera English. With the events of the Arab Spring
transforming the Middle East this year, you know you can continue to count on
Mosaic‘s unique format to give you unfiltered reports from
over 40 broadcasters in the region. Mosaic continues to give
you the context and perspective you need to understand what’s really happening
in the Middle East.
Watch Mosaic on Access Sacramento channel 17 Monday, Tuesday,
Thursday, and Friday at 5:00 PM and 1:00 AM.
