Recently, some media analysts have put forth the argument that Al Jazeera, the Pan-Arab satellite television network, has become increasingly moderate in its coverage of Saudi Arabia. Today we will put this argument to the test with a panel of journalists from around the world. Up for discussion: the differences between Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera Arabic, as well as a comparison of Al Jazeera, funded by Qatar, and its competitor, Al Arabiya, funded by Saudi Arabia. And we'll try to get to the bottom of whether or not Al Jazeera really has changed its treatment of touchy political topics.
