Al Jazeera English was recently hailed by no less a person than U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for providing “real news.” Viewership of the Los Angeles public television station, KCET-TV, increased by 135 percent after it started broadcasting Al Jazeera English. Al Jazeera Arabic, however, seems to have fallen from grace. It has been strongly criticized for the way it has been covering the Arab Spring. Many Arab journalists accuse it of providing inconsistent and biased coverage, saying that it is harsher on some Arab leaders than on others.
However, when the demonstrations in Bahrain turned violent, Al Jazeera tended to ignore them. The voices of the protestors and opposition groups were not heard. On March 14, as demonstrations were ongoing in Bahrain, Qatar's Prime Minister, Sheikh Hamad Jassim ibn Jaber al Thani, whose family owns Al Jazeera, told the outlet in a phone interview that the Saudi and UAE forces that were sent to Bahrain to put down the demonstrations were for “assistance and support.” He said he supported King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. "I think the call of His Highness, the Bahraini Crown Prince, for dialogue is a sincere one that should be well taken by all parties."
