Al Jazeera: For Western Eyes Only

Early next year Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based TV network famous
for its 24/7 Arabic-language war coverage in Afghanistan and
messages from Osama bin Laden, will launch an all-English channel.
In the coming months, it will also launch an English-language Web
site designed to provide fair, in-depth news features that present
the war in a more human light. Bob Garfield, host of the NPR radio
show On the Media, recently interviewed the Web site?s
managing editor, Joanne Tucker, who aims to raise the bar for
journalistic integrity. ?. . . [T]here are two or more sides to the
war against terror. . . . You only are a PR and propaganda machine
when you focus on one side of the story. We don?t intend to do
that.?
