    Is Al Jazeera a reliable source?

    Simple question. Do you believe Al Jazeera is a reliable source of information or is it unreliable?

    Compared to the American media, absolutely. Objectively, they are obviously biased on issues regarding the Middle East but offer far more coverage as well.

    I haven't seen or read much of Al Jazeera myself to know if it's reliable, but I hear good things about it.

    I'd say AJ is equally as reliable as most other major news sources.

    Reliable is probably not the best descriptor though is it?

    I can rely on some news sources to be quite biased in their reporting.

    Are you asking if AJ is a credible news source? Are you asking about their "lean" or bias?

    A known habitual liar is reliable. Right?

    I'm pretty sure there are elements of bias like anything else but there as good as anything else mainstream.

    They're no Russia Today for example, where every issue is somehow linked to the US, neoliberalism and Western imperialism.

    because neoliberalism is a movement that advocates globalism

    Aljazzeera covers a wide array of news.

    If I have to guess, I say they are reliable in some areas, less so in others.

    I voted for "no" because by defacto, I assumed it was about coverage of stuff that happens in the ME.
    If you want to know whether it's reliable regarding american politics... more so than the american mainstream media I think. Especially more reliable than Fox, NBC or MSNBC.

    Without doing a lot of research, I"m going to stick my neck out and say that the truth of what it broadcasts is equal to that of Fox News.
