AJ News

Al Jazeera News is a global media company with 80 bureaus around the globe.

Al Jazeera is a Qatari, state-funded news broadcaster located in Qatar.  The Al Jazeera Media Network owns it.  In its beginning, it was an Arabic news satellite TV channel that reported current affairs.  However, they have grown to include internet and television channels in several languages.

They are a global news organization that includes 80 or more news bureaus around the globe.  It grew due to the War in Afghanistan, which they covered life and was the only news organization to do so.

Being a state-funded organization, critics have accused them of supporting the Qatari government, claiming to maintain its editorial independence, and also accused of promoting Islamist perspectives to promote the Muslim Brotherhood.  They have insisted it covers all sides of a debate.  However, other media networks have supported the network.

We view AJ as a critical source but warn readers to exercise caution regarding “all” news sources.  Hidden political agendas exist in this industry.
