Um, how exactly a is Al Jazeera "not state sponsored" when it's owned by the government of Qatar?..
Also, being critical of the west in a necessary but not a sufficient condition for unbiasedness. Al Jazeera is considered biased even in the middle east, since it's basically a branch of the Qatar foreign ministry. (For example, they blatantly supported the oppressive Muslim brotherhood regime in Egypt and avoided covering it's human rights violations) (talk) 21:01, 31 March 2014 (UTC)

Calling all criticism of Al Jazeera racist is laaaaaaaaame --Arisboch (talk) 14:58, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

You call that fixing?--Arisboch (talk) 21:12, 4 March 2015 (UTC)

Al Jazeera on Israel and Palestine[edit]

While I'm strongly opposed to the state of Israel even existing (as in the independent state where kicked out Arabs are not allowed to return to and Israeli Arabs and Palestinians are expected to speak Hebrew while they're being highly discriminated against *cough*), I must say that Al Jazeera is VERY biased on Hamas. I don't have any source on this but myself, or a reason for you to believe me, but here's some things I will say and I hope some of you reading this will keep this in the back of your mind and maybe I will inspire you to find some objective sources or whatever *fart* yourself to form an opinion that can be added to this article since quite frankly I'm too lazy and too busy to do that myself (like seriously, I got homework to do which I'm too lazy for to actually 'do'). So this summer I've been watching a lot of Al Jazeera since it doesn't really have any ads, is a bit slower paste than other news channels and I think the news readers are pleasant to look at, they also seem to be the only news channel treating Palestinians as actual people living in an apartheid state rather than some not so white people that happened to get killed. However, they never mention that Hamas fires indiscriminate rockets towards Israel, they never mention Hamas is a terrorist group, they cut off correspondents or whatever that talk about Hamas rockets and then act as if nothing happened to move to a short Qatar funded break. So yeah, next time Israel decides to carpet bomb Gaza I suggest y'all look at Al Jazeera's coverage and form your own conclusions.— Unsigned, by: Dapperedavid / talk / contribs

Judging by your ... errr ... opinion on Israel, the Hamas and al-Jazeera must be right up your ally, amirite?--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 21:43, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
