    I have freelanced for Al Jazeera over the years. I’ve not personally witnessed a culture of anti-semitism and I’ve never heard full-time employees or other freelancers flag this up. A sentiment of Anti-Israel occupation of Palestine and anti-Netenyahu certainly.

    Aside from their news content (which is held in high regard in the broadcast world), their editorial content is regarded as some of the finest around. That said, as with plenty of news organisations, there can be biases which can trigger.

    Edit: I should add I primarily freelance for Al Jaz English

    Personal bias creeping in with me taking anything non-Saudi over anything pro-Saudi. The Qataris ain't great by a long stretch but they still aren't the (extremist) House of Saud.

    What do you say to that? It's just...I don't know, immoral? Hypocritical? Outrageous? The president encouraged a mob to storm. The Capitol, but hey, gotta move on now. Don't bother with any punishment. Just forgive, forget and move on.

    True, but when one national propaganda machine is pointing out the anti-semitic behaviour of the other national propaganda machine, I'll appreciate the work they're doing.

    But if the only source is "Arab news" then the it is likely to politically motivated lies. If there are other more reliable and non bias sources then thats different

    Those are incidents I remember being widely reported at the time.

    That site was just the first search result from "Al Jazeera anti-Semitism"

    How do you get impeached for inciting violence against the government and not at least get put on gardening leave?

    This is the real Trump brand right here.

    “White House officials have started blocking Mr. Giuliani’s calls to the president, another adviser said.”

    This is an interesting article on how a conspiracy theory self perpetuates through the right-wing ecosystem. Sort of like a perpetual motion machine fueled by hate.
