This is an OK site which I will refer to occasionally but it is limited for world news and has a narrow and biased view of events in the Middle East. Poor compared to say, the BBC. Previous review - "constantly updated". Hardly, the news is often out of date.
Global News Unbound: Brilliant, fearless reporting from around the world. Live news from the heart of conflict zones; investigations of abuse, corruption, and poverty in dictatorships and police states, as well as in western democracies; and cutting edge, up-to-the-minute headlines.
And the quality of that reporting is absolutely first-rate... certainly equal or greater than the BBC or any major news outlet, but without the bias and blinders found so often in those other outlets (particularly in the US).
Al Jazeera has become my go-to source for world news, backed up by BBC, Deutsche Welle, Spiegel, McClatchy, and numerous newspapers from around the world. When you become accustomed to such a high quality and broad scope of world news, you will be appalled by the major gaps and biases in mainstream US reporting.
The previous reviewer commented that he felt that Al Jazeera has a "mildly pro-Palestinian stance." I think this perception is inaccurate and arises primarily out the stark contrast between AJ's open reporting of the ongoing situation in Israel/Palestine, versus the very limited and admittedly pro-Israeli news served by US outlets (and often BBC, as well).
Al Jazeera's website is clean, fast, and constantly updated.
Videos of their news reports are available on YouTube, with many new pieces every day.
And a high-quality live video stream is available in English, 24-7, on LiveStation (along with many other channels from around the world).
I give it my highest recommendation, without reservation.
World News at its finest: Aljazeera has a truly global approach to news, without a UK or US bias. While it may focus coverage on the Middle East with a mildly pro-palestinian stance, it covers news from across the globe without the usual Jingoistic nonsense suffered by the US media.
It's my primary source of world news, and most of the clips are available on YouTube too. Excellent!
