Al Jazeera is one of the world’s most powerful broadcasters. Its reputation has been earned through a visionary and courageous set of journalistic ideals. It has revolutionised news coverage, especially in the Middle East, presenting uncensored reporting and open debate.
In 2006, Al Jazeera launched a new English-language international network based in London, Washington, Kuala Lumpur and with headquarters in Doha, Qatar. The new network carries a truly global agenda to a world audience.
