Consider This was a weeknight current events talk show on Al Jazeera America television hosted by Antonio Mora. The program featured interviews and panel discussions on the stories of the day. Consider This also featured interactive segments where the audience joins the conversation via social media.[1] The show was produced and shot from New York City and was produced from the same studio as Real Money with Ali Velshi, another show on Al Jazeera America. Consider This airs from 10pm to 11pm eastern time, Monday through Friday. There were repeats in the morning and on weekends.

The show also took questions from social media. That part of the show was hosted by Hermela Aregawi.

History[edit]

On July 26, 2013 the network announced that former Good Morning America host and award-winning journalist Antonio Mora would host a current events talk show called Consider This. The first episode of the show highlighted the hunger strike and court-approved force-feeding in California's prison system. Other episodes have highlighted issues such as the U.S. education system, sexual assault on college campuses, foreign issues, Native American issues, LGBT issues, poverty, the government, science, and investigative reports. Notable guests have included former president Jimmy Carter and racing legend Jackie Stewart among others. The show absorbed much of the former Current TV staff based in New York City that had been part of the show Viewpoint.

The show was cancelled on February 2, 2015 after a reorganization of Al Jazeera America's programming schedule.

It was later replaced by the weekly program Third Rail.
