Al Jazeera guts daily schedule and cuts staff
by Claire Atkinson
Struggling Al Jazeera America is cutting jobs and replacing most of its daytime lineup with an overseas news feed in its latest reshuffling.
The cable outfit told staff on Friday it's canceling both its morning news report and "Consider This with Antonio Mora" at 11 a.m. It's also scrapping its 4 p.m. news hour and pushing its 6 p.m. coverage an hour later to 7 p.m.
In addition, Ali Velshi, the host of "Real Money with Ali Velshi," and Joie Chen's "America Tonight" are looking at less airtime — either shorter shows or fewer days per week.
