It's owned by the Qatar royal family, clintons bff, and it's incredibly biased. That documentary you posted was a great example.

To say is "incredibly bias" is an overstatement to my measure.
Who it reports on and criticises is pretty vast.

I don't intend to debate the world view the documentary presented.
It was a half that has never been told.
I'll leave it at that.

Bias works like this, IMO.

There is bias, other bias and other others' bias on top of that.

Sometimes it's more left or more right.
Sometimes it's culture, country etc....

Similar issues are covered from various angles.
Sometimes there are new issues completely.

Truth usually dwells in between.
Really.... Fact finding is more like triangulation.

Tl;dr IMO it's English language news for the west from a nonwestern news source.... Of course it has A type of bias.
