Al-Jazeera Hires Staff From ABC, CNN

Al-Jazeera Hires Staff From ABC, CNN

Former ABC News Nightline correspondent Dave Marash has signed with the Arab News network al-Jazeera's new English-language network.

Marash, 63, told The Los Angeles Times al-Jazeera is a thoroughly respectable news organization and his new position is the most interesting job on Earth.

The Emmy Award-winner will be a co-anchor for a news program from the Qatar-based network's Washington studio with a still-to-be-named female co-anchor, the Times said.

The Bush administration has criticized al-Jazeera for inflammatory reports, the Times said. It has been the first on a number of occasions to broadcast communications from terrorist leaders.

Other new al-Jazeera employees include former BBC and CNN reporter Riz Khan, CNN producer James Wright and former CNN editor/producer Kieran Baker. Josh Rushing, a former Marine Corps information officer in Iraq who was featured in the 2004 documentary Control Room, has also been hired by al-Jazeera.

Marash said he may be risking his good name, but I don't think it's a serious risk.

Honestly, I don't really have a problem with Al Jazeera. I don't think they're any less reputable than ABC or CNN. They may have their biases like any other news organization, but you can get the same facts from them as you could from any other news organization, and the rhetoric I've seen from them is not as inflammatory as Fox News. Of course, I've only seen their website, and haven't actually had the chance to see them on TV(nor would I be able to understand what they're saying).

Agreed. Media is media if its arab or american its always gonna have its bias, if there wasnt programming like al jazeera then information gathered on the enemy would be a lot hard.
