With lots of cash to throw into its launch today, Al Jazeera America doesn’t need the kind of advertising revenue its competitors bring in.

Now that the Supreme Court has struck down DOMA, young canvassers are getting signatures and donations to push same-sex marriage in a handful of states.

And, ever heard of a taper tantrum?
