Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera (Arabic: الجزيرة‎) is a television station headquartered in Doha, Qatar.

The original Al Jazeera channel's willingness to broadcast dissenting views, including on call-in shows, created controversies in autocratic Arab Gulf States. The station gained worldwide attention following the September 11, 2001 attacks, when it broadcast video statements by Osama bin Laden and other al-Qaeda leaders.
