Excerpt: Al Jazeera (Arabic: ? IPA: , literally The Island, abbreviating The Peninsula) (also Aljazeera or JSC ) is an independent broadcaster owned by the state of Qatar through the Qatar Media Corporation and headquartered in Doha, Qatar. Initially launched as an Arabic news and current affairs satellite TV channel, Al Jazeera has since expanded into a network with several outlets, including the Internet and specialty TV channels in multiple languages. Al Jazeera is accessible in several world regions. The original Al Jazeera channels willingness to broadcast dissenting views, for example on call-in shows, created controversies in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf.

The station gained worldwide attention following the September 11, 2001 attacks, when it was the only channel to cover the war in Afghanistan live from its office there. It has also recently been acclaimed for its in-depth coverage of the Arab Spring of revolutions which continues to this day.

Aljazeera Satellite Channel was launched on 1 November 1996 following the closure of the BBCs Arabic language television station, a joint venture with a Qatar Media Corporation company. It had fallen apart after a year and a half when the Saudi government attempted to kill a documentary on executions under sharia law. The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa, provided a loan of QAR 500 million ($137 million) to sustain Aljazeera through its first five years, as Hugh Miles detailed in his book Aljazeera The Inside Story of the Arab News Channel That Is Challenging the West.
