Al-Jazeera English Launched Today

There is no shortage of controversies surrounding Al-Jazeera. A self-styled “voice of the oppressed south,” it is widely villified in the US as the voice of terror, and in the Middle East for the platform that it provides for dissenting voices (one notable episode being Wafa Sultan’s, opined on earlier in this blog.)

All of this, along with the surprisingly high quality of the studios, anchors, and the news so far -not just for a Middle Eastern media outlet- gives me more than ample reasons to like it. It has yet to prove its mettle in independence and quality in the longer run as it competes with other, more established global outlets.
