Al Jazeera media bias rating is Center.

AllSides currently lists Al Jazeera’s bias in news coverage as center. While officials have stated that they are editorially independent from the government of Qatar, which owns Al Jazeera, this assertion has been disputed. Its website claims to practice impartial, fact-based reporting, building stories on a foundation of fairness, balance, independence and diversity. Nevertheless, some perceive Al Jazeera to have predominantly Islamist perspectives, accusing the website of promoting the Muslim Brotherhood, having pro-Sunni and anti-Shia biases, as well having anti-Western and anti-Israel biases.

The 2014 Pew Research Center Study - Where News Audiences Fit on the Political Spectrum found that 28% of Al Jazeera consumers are mostly liberal (compared with 22% of Web respondents), and 43% are consistently liberal.

The AllSides Media Bias RatingTM reflects the average judgment of the American people.

That produces a fair, verifiable bias rating.

Unless otherwise noted, this bias rating refers only to news articles on their web site, not from opinion pieces or what is broadcasted on TV or radio. The opinion writers from the same media source may have different bias ratings, so individual writers often are rated separately.
