Neither for that matter is Al-Jazeera Arabic, however saying that it is up to the same standards as the English version is not true. But this bias is rarely directed against the United States though there is evidence of story positioning and some issues with commentary (there are some religious programming that has slid into arguably anti-semitic and anti-western rhetoric) instead the most common allegations have been inter-Arab. Bahrain is actually a great example where al-Jazeera Arabic's coverage was particularly harsh of the uprising and framed the Gulf security narrative instead of the story, while Al-Jazeera English mostly avoided it.

    I always appreciated their international coverage, being they seem to follow stories that generally don't make airtime in the west

    If you are in the Industry.....then you already know there are several that have said AJ was biased. So like you telling someone to Google up Gibbs. The Same can be said for Amy Jacobsen. Then you can Google up Lynn Sweet From the Chicago Sun Times and see what she had to say About them before and now. Pretty much just about with any in the News.

    Although, like I said earlier you can't prove they are not Bias. Especially if you go by the premise that they Operate like all other News-Media Outlets.

    Well, but they don't have to many Elite Hollywood Stars types that run around talking about politics publicly either. Nor do they give to much Prime time to the Shia or the Zahdi <sp>

    Do you think their Political and religious shows tend to run along the same lines of the Sunni Doctrine? Would you say their reporting about the Shia other than in violent acts gives any insight into the Shi'te Doctrine?

    Well AJE doesn't tend to do that.

    I never claimed to have dealth with him at AJ. I said:
    When I had dealings with AJ, about 8 or so years ago, their Head of Documentaries was Jewish, recruited from Discovery Channel iirc.
    I said I had dealings with AJ, and he was the HofDocs at the time. I was dealing with the features department, not his department. He and I had worked together previously. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

    ithink aj is under attack because they tend to filter nothing,from beheadings,to govt corruption,to internation conflicts no other msm will cover but insteadshow a story about a mass shooting ora pregnant women goingmissing or other forms of sensationalism over journalism.


    to topit off,al jazeera in arabic with subtitles covered more european news and american news than european and american msm.most stories of importance willnever see msm.
    No, Al J is under attack because of Bush and Rumsfeldt. They could not control the station during the Iraq occupation and in Afghanistan (like the rest of the worlds media). Al Jazeera stood for quite a few embarrassing stories for the US military occupation forces and in return Rumsfeldt started targeting the station with verbal, legal and military attacks. It thankfully did not shut them up one bit and they continue to expose the parts of the US military occupation forces that were corrupt and did bad things. They also had the nerve to give a voice to the insurgence forces (mostly non Al Q) which pissed off the US even more.

    Before Iraq, Al Jazeera was actually a favorite of the US administration and was openly backed as a force of change in the middle east. That of course changed when the US starting invading and Al Jazeera started asking the hard questions.

    Same owner, not management. There are some crossovers with some journalists. And in fact many of the journalists on Al Jazeera in Arabic come from liberal Arab countries.. Egypt, Lebanon and even Syria. They are not brain dead radical muslims from Iranian's and Saudi's .. which is what most American's think.

    egypt is definitely not a liberal country. Also, I've been reading and watching AJ for a little over 5 years, so I am aware it isn't some radical news outlet.

    "Views of harsh punishments also vary across the Muslim publics polled. Majorities of Muslims in Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan and Nigeria say they would favor making harsh punishments such as stoning people who commit adultery; whippings and cutting off of hands for crimes like theft and robbery; and the death penalty for those who leave the Muslim religion the law in their country. In the other predominantly Muslim countries surveyed – Turkey, Lebanon and Indonesia – most Muslims oppose these measures.

    About eight-in-ten Muslims in Egypt and Pakistan (82% each) endorse the stoning of people who commit adultery; 70% of Muslims in Jordan and 56% of Nigerian Muslims share this view. Muslims in Pakistan and Egypt are also the most supportive of whippings and cutting off of hands for crimes like theft and robbery; 82% in Pakistan and 77% in Egypt favor making this type of punishment the law in their countries, as do 65% of Muslims in Nigeria and 58% in Jordan.

    When asked about the death penalty for those who leave the Muslim religion, at least three-quarters of Muslims in Jordan (86%), Egypt (84%) and Pakistan (76%) say they would favor making it the law; in Nigeria, 51% of Muslims favor and 46% oppose it. In contrast, Muslims in Lebanon, Turkey and Indonesia largely reject the notion that harsh punishments should be the law in their countries. About three-quarters of Turkish and Lebanese Muslims oppose the stoning of people who commit adultery (77% and 76%, respectively), as does a narrower majority (55%) of Muslims in Indonesia."
