You're mistaking Al Jazeera with Al Hurra...

Is that some kind of joke or you really admire Al Jazeera? Even RT is more serious then them...one can at least sometimes find real news...

FRANCE 24 is SUCH rubbish

English-language Al Jazeera is not bad, about on a par with the BBC foreign service or whatever. Arab-language Al Jazeera is a pernicious propaganda outlet.

You must be joking ... failed foreign policy led to the old emir stepping down last year.
○  AJ and Qatar: Muslim Brothers' Dark Empire?

I do appreciate some of their documentary work - President De Gaulle, West-Africa and the Foccart network.

Why would I be joking? Do you disagree on the dichotomy between AJ English and Arabic?

I appreciate AJ English both as a news outlet and for its documentaries, as you note. I have never noticed anything that looks like Brotherhood propaganda.

AJ Arabic, on the other hand, lost most of its audience through their mendacious treatment of the Egyptian revolution, and are hated and reviled throughout the Arab world.
