Is Al -Jazeera A News Network ? Read Elliot Abrams

Is Al-Jazeera a News Network? - Elliott Abrams
Al-Jazeera is not a news channel, even if it broadcasts news. It is wholly owned by the Qatari royal family, whose interests it will pretty obviously protect. Henceforth, tens of millions of Americans will receive Al-Jazeera English in their homes.
It would be nice if the channel carried a little warning label to viewers, clarifying who owns Al-Jazeera so that they understand they are getting all the news that the Qatari government wants them to have. If Al-Jazeera were called Voice of Qatar, and clearly labeled as that nation's international broadcaster, the situation would be clear to its viewers. (Council on Foreign Relations)
