After three years of abject failure, Al Jazeera America News Network goes dark.

On Tuesday night, Al Jazeera America closed the network with a three-hour broadcast from 6 to 9 p.m., which will be repeated from 9 p.m. to midnight. The final broadcast featured a number of Al Jazeera’s on-air personalities and has been described as a thank you to the network’s viewers. In a statement, Mr. Anstey and Ms. O’Brian said that strong journalism was a “responsibility which every media organization should carry with determination and resolve. We are proud to have done so since our first to our final moment on air.” BOOM!
