    AL JAZEERA TV: Audience Demographics and Viewership Profile

    Al Jazeera claims at least 40-million viewers in the Arab world. The majority of viewers in the survey that were not living in the Arab world watch it on satellite in the United States.
    Al Jazeera viewers base in Saudi Arabia is 5 times larger than United States Sponsored AlHurra's audience | Research and Studies

    In contrast Al Jazeera and Al Arabiya news channels have much higher credibility amongst a much larger viewers base. The survey covered all channels viewed in Saudi Arabia be they news, music, sports and general entertainment. Radio listening patterns were also covered by the survey.

    The Arab Advisors Group is pleased to announce that a major multi client survey of households in Saudi Arabia that use and view Satellite TV Channels has just been concluded. With a sample size of 134 households, the random sample survey has a 95% confidence level with a less than 9% margin of error. The survey's fieldwork in Saudi Arabia has been finalized and its final report will be ready on September 15th.

    Overall, the station's Web video stream saw a 600 percent jump in worldwide viewership during the Gaza offensive and about 60 percent of those hits came from the United States, according to the station's internal numbers.

    Outside figures also point to big gains in U.S. online interest, suggesting the war gave the Arab station its first significant chance to break into the American market.

    Traffic to Al-Jazeera's main Web page, which includes both the English and Arabic sites, spiked once Israeli airstrikes began on Dec. 27, according to Amazon.com Inc.'s Alexa Web tracking site.
    Gasp! Al Jazeera must be the most truthiest realist news networks out there. Ahhiuck!

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Al Jazeera has many different arms. The english language channel often outranks our own stations in terms of quality. There is a crazy Islamic chapter that airs shows with Mickey Mouse as a suicide bomber, but not everything from Al Jazeera is crap. As somebody else said, the english Al Jazeera is pretty much another BBC

    Re: Al Jazeera's Presence on PBS Alarms Some

    I think the confusion here stems from the fact that there are 2 versions of news presented by Al-Jazerra. One of them is in Arabic, and it is pretty radical stuff, presented to the Middle East population. The other is Al-Jazeera English, which is presented to the rest of the world, and is pretty moderate stuff, compared to the Arabic broadcasts. Yes, Al-Jazeera does have a political bent in favor of its agenda. So does Tucker Carlson, yet righties on this board had no problem when he got his own PBS show a while back, and that pissed off Liberals to no end.

    This brings me to what people on both the right and left are missing - Using one's intelligence. Instead of complaining about what shows are on PBS, why not watch them all, and then use your own "political filter" to decide what information suits your ideology? Being able to see ALL the information, and decide for yourself, and not just be fed information that is specific to one or two groups, is the American way.

    No news here, the same people who supported terrorist rhetoric against George Bush now desperately defending Al Jazeera.

    The only thing more laughable is when these same people claim they are fair and balanced and are just being patriotic while they trash Western Values, George Bush, Fox News and the good ole USA.

    Bravo Liberuls.

    That show, Tomorrow's Pioneers, was on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV. You really need to get your facts straight.
