There are 2 reasons to think that Al Jazeera may provide an interesting addition to the news mix for those who have access to it. I don't have access to it and won't be looking for it, but I've found some interesting comments recently. Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly when and where these were on the radio. They are probably from NPR but I'm not sure which show or what day.
(1) A lot of the journalists involved in the English version have something to prove. They have abandoned their prior jobs in Western media organizations and they don't want to lose their credibility by coming across as propagandists. Or at least that is the opinion expressed by some US journalists;
(2) I heard an interview with someone (IIRC, an Israeli government representative) who described some of the material on Al Jazeera that we don't usually hear about in the Western media. Apparently the Arabic network includes considerable material that is factually accurate regarding Israel and it's people -- along with the propaganda. He actually said that many of the Arabic reports showed considerably more balance than the majority of the Western media's reports. He was especially critical of the BBC in this regard, which I found interesting because IIRC he was being interviewed on a BBC news show.
IOW, the network is not expected to be pure propaganda. I'm not going out of my way to tune in, but I don't want to dismiss it based on speculative prejudice.
