Al Jazeera America said goodbye to viewers Tuesday after a short two-and-a-half year venture by the Qatar-funded news network into the U.S. As the news channel concluded its final broadcast Tuesday evening, it signed off with a goodbye from its on-air staff and producers. According to BuzzFeed, the cable news channel launched in 2013 after buying Current TV for $500 million, and promised to cover news events with a serious and somber tone.
