Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera is a news service based in what you could call the centre of the Arab world. Although it is providing news from all over the world, the service is very well known and praised (and, of course, critisised) for its covering of the Arab spring. If you want to stay updated, please check their site regularly. It really is becoming, in my opinion, one of the best news services of the world, reaching the level of the BBC and The Guardian. Moreover, it is often looking at things from a different perspective, which might work very refreshing. Anyhow, it is always a good thing to make sure that you have been informed from different points of view, since news coverage is (I believe) inevitably biased.

(Another great thing about Al Jazeera is the fact that they cover news in both Arabic and English. By doing this, they are reaching a large public. Click here for an interview with Abderrahim Foukara, chief for Al Jazeera Arabic.)
