GOOD Magazine assets, video. In 2006, Al Jazeera launched an international, 24-hour English language news network, ten years after Al Jazeera Arabic began. It’s one of the most far-reaching, global news networks, after the BCC and CNN, and is the first international channel that doesn’t have its roots in the Western world. The U.S. government had loved Al Jazeera Arabic, but that quickly changed after the network began reporting on casualties from the American military campaign in Afghanistan and broadcasting Osama bin Laden’s releases. Al Jazeera English has an image problem to contend with, and no major American cable provider has picked up the channel. But the journalists at this new network see themselves as proving objective reports from, and for, a part of the world that has long been underserved by other news organizations.
