Al Jazeera News Mobile App Download For Android, iPhone, iPad & Windows Phone – Get Latest & Live English, Arabic News Update From Aljazeera On Mobile
Al Jazeera which literally means “The Island”, although it refers to the Arabian Peninsula in context, also known as Jazeera Satellite Channel, is a state-funded station in Doha, Qatar, managed by the Al Jazeera Media Network. It was launched initially as an Arab news channel; the current television network has however expanded with several retail outlets, including the Internet and television channels in several languages. Al Jazeera is a large news organization with over 80 offices around the world. The original intent of the Al Jazeera channel to disseminate dissenting opinions, such as the call-in shows, has created controversy in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf. The station attracted the attention of the entire world after the outbreak of the war in Afghanistan when it was the only news channel to cover the war live.
Al Jazeera is owned by the government of Qatar and Al Jazeera officials said they were independent publishers of the Qatar government. However, this claim is in dispute as several high profile people have accused Al Jazeera of being a means of propaganda for the government of Qatar. It is sometimes perceived that the network has a predominantly Islamic perspective, which promotes the Muslim Brotherhood and has prejudices in favour of the Sunnis and anti-Shi’ites in its report on regional affairs. Al Jazeera in its defence posited that it covers all sides of a debate; that it presents the vision of Israel, Iran’s point of view as well as the videos broadcast by Osama bin Laden.
