Philosophy

Al Jazeera English has stated objectives of emphasizing news from the developing world, of "reversing the North to South flow of information" and of "setting the news agenda". The latter is the channel's main slogan. Some observers, including media scholar Adel Iskandar, have commented that this focus can be seen, in the eyes of Western viewers, as casting Al Jazeera English as a global "alternative" news network, though the entire Al Jazeera brand has been heavily mainstreamed in many parts of the world.[2] Other Al Jazeera English slogans and catchphrases include: "EVERY ANGLE | EVERY SIDE", "ALL THE NEWS | ALL THE TIME", "fearless journalism" and "If it's newsworthy, it gets on air, whether it's Bush or Bin Laden." Al Jazeera's Code of Ethics mirrors some of these statements. The launch Brand idenity and promotional positioning of the English Channel was led by Director of Creative, Morgan Almeida.."to preserve and protect our amazing Arabic heritage and extend this in a language familiar to diverse global audiences" Adel Iskandar (aka Adel Iskandar Farag) (born March 15, 1977) is a Middle East media scholar, postcolonial theorist and media reform activist. ...

Trivia

Al Jazeera English's Doha news studio featured on the cover of TIME magazine, November 6 2006
  • Although Al Jazeera English claims to show in HD, like BBC World, they are cropped and being shown in 14:9 but includes commercials and promos. However the programmes that are shown on the Al Jazeera English YouTube channel are shown in their original 16:9 format.
  • When Al Jazeera English was launched on November 15, 2006, its broadcast was also simulcast on Al Jazeera Arabic. Strangely, Al Jazeera Arabic had shown the 16:9 original feed of the channel and not the usual 14:9 broadcast feed.[22]
  • On 13 December 2006, Comedy Central's Daily Show ran a piece of comic-correspondent Samantha Bee visiting Al Jazeera English's Washington office and "rebuilding this network from the ground up."[23] A few hours after the segment aired, complete transcripts appeared on the blogosphere,[24] and subsequent Google searches of "Al Jazeera" "Daily Show" produced over 200,000 hits.[25]
