Will sanitized version of Al Jazeera aka ‘AJAM’ win US audience?

Here’s a triumph of language over truth: Al Jazeera in America has become AJAM.

The initials, popping up in headlines and the network’s Twitter feed, aim to sanitize the image of Usama bin Laden’s favorite mouthpiece. That history makes the brand a hard sell as it launches a US channel.

The antiseptic acronym might work — if Al Jazeera changes its stripes. If it doesn’t, by any name, it will remain unwelcome and unwatched.
