    It's an entirely different network run by entirely different people.

    JERUSALEM Media watchers in the Middle East say the Arabic news network Al Jazeera is well known for promoting radical Islamist causes overseas, but it remains to be seen how it will present the news on its newly purchased U.S. cable channel.Itamar Marcus, director of Palestinian Media Watch, an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society and the Arab world through their media and educational materials, said there is "a big difference" between Al Jazeera's Arabic programming and its international English-language broadcasts.
    "The Arab broadcasts very often promote a very radical Islamist approach," said Marcus.
    "What's brilliant," Marcus said, is the way the company "binds this in with all the latest technology and even occasionally interviews with differing opinions, including Israeli leaders." This creates a "perception" of balanced reporting, Marcus said, "but in fact, the overall underlying agenda is very radical."
    Daoud Kuttab, the Jordan-based director of the Community Media Network, a Middle East media group, said Al Jazeera's Arabic-language programming "is very different" from its English counterpart.
    The tone of the English broadcasts "is much calmer, and the diversity of its reporters and anchors make it a much more international media outlet than an Arabic one."
    Asked if Al Jazeera takes sides, Kuttab said it "tries to represent the Arab point of view, just as NBC presents an American point of view when reporting from Afghanistan."
    Al Jazeera was begun in 1996 and owned by the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa, an Arab monarch who has offered support to Hamas, the U.S.-designated terrorist group in Gaza, and presides over an authoritarian regime.

    How will Al Jazeera translate in USA?

    Well, there you have it...an arabic POV network, masking its agenda using a FNC template of balance, while promoting a islamist agenda, with a leader from an authoritarian state who supports Hamas as its owner....I thought we already had MSNBC?

    The Qatari government funds it but they avoid it by having non-Qataris run it and usually avoid talking about Qatar. They are British and until 2010 it was headed by a Canadian.

    If people want to get their news from totalitarian dictatorships, well, that's their business.

    The Emir (King) of Qatar owns Alj English. I'm pretty sure he owns the whole deal. It's a propaganda arm of a dictatorship. It's state press, from fundies. It's no different than PressTV or CCTV.
