Al–Jazeera a welcome relief

Finally a non-western perspective on global news has arrived and I hope they will live up to their promise. Having literally grown up on BBC World and CNN, I am extremely excited about Al-Jazeera International. BBC is by far the more balanced perspective on global events, and unlike CNN or FOX does not seem to have a political agenda to fulfill. But Al-Jazeera is just what the world needs. While any military chief can criticize their coverage of the Iraq war, in my view it was journalism at its highest standard. As they claim’war is gruesome’ and I am glad there is a news channel out there willing to show just how gruesome and inhumane it is.
Al-Jazeera’s ultimate aim is to revolutionalize the way global news is reported, by highlighting the perspectives of the less economically developed world. It is a noble aim indeed, and I have full faith they will try their best to achieve it.
