    The Sunni bias comes from their financiers, it exists regardless. I can only assume the people talking in this thread simply don't care about it, so they pretend like the bias doesn't exist.

    The only time I got into watching al Jazeera English was briefly during the Egypt revolution. That coverage seemed pretty thorough. I'm not very up on the political paradigm of Sunni vs Shi'ite or Sunni vs the rest of the world bias would look like... so I didn't notice that there was a bias either by it not being there or by my ignorance of it all in that respect what I did notice is that they where there on the ground in Egypt doing what looked like a pretty damn good job.

    It exists. If you didn't notice it, it's just because you don't know the situation. It's not like anything is wrong with not knowing, but...now you do. It's like someone from Bangladesh, knowing nothing of the outside world beyond India and Burma, being unable to tell MSNBC was biased. Of course they couldn't, it's not really their fault.

    A greater availability of diverse viewpoints on television is always a good thing. USA residents should know what the rest of the world thinks of our policies and behavior.

    al Jazeera is a top notch news network. It provides insights from places and people totally ignored by the corporate media. It's journalists go to places that western journalists either shun or can't get access to. Indeed, AJ's coverage of the US elections was the most insightful of any I watched, and wasn't afraid to talk about class, as the US corporate media is.

    They also broadcasted the third party debates.

    I'm pretty sure we do Not see the same thing as al-Jazeera Arabic just translated.
    AJE more resembles BBC; many with with the same British accent.
    Well.....the OP does say Time Warner is pulling out. So I don't know when it will affect NY. They might pull out of there last due to the UN and any Embassies around Washington D.C.

    Do you think there is a difference in owning stock where one has no Control over programming as opposed to owning the broadcast and are able to produce their own shows?

    Also do you think any Country and it's citizens that allows a media Outlet that is owned by Another Country shouldn't have any concerns about what they will be broadcasting and what shows they will be airing.....inside their very own Country? Does that bring any chuckles with that hypocrisy ya was laughing at?
