Although it got bad press when it recently put down over $300 million to buy the progressive Current TV from former VP Al Gore, the deal helped Al Jazeera expand its viewers to 40 million in the American market.
It’s an award-winning broadcast news known for coverage of global events from Arabe Spring to Al Qaeda and controversial messages from Osama Bin Laden a decade ago.
