    Aside from Al Jazeera, what other "live" news sites work well on the V? CNN wants to do pop-ups, the BBC uses Flash...

    Sorry, I don't have an answer for you, but what's the URL for CNN's live feed? I only ever find their video reports

    I just tried to watch Al Jazeera through their mobile Web site, and it didn't work. :( It stayed on "Loading video..." forever. Do you have to use their actual app?

    Re: CNN url - looked through my history and all I can find are urls w/ vid clip too. Sorry. (I may have been on a news aggregator site that sourced out CNN - I'll keep looking.)

    Re: Al Jazeera - I'm using the app/widget (that I got through Android Market).

    Al Jazeera English is a really good news agency--none of the partisan political
    crud we get on our American stations. It's like BBC.

    I love the Al Jaz app. Give it a shot.

    Other than that, I don't know of a good news app, but I am sure there will be more soon.
