The Al Jazeera English digital monthly magazine showcases the very best of Al Jazeera’s journalism from across the globe.
It features compelling documentaries that bring human stories into focus and highlight the use and abuse of power, hard-hitting debate and interview shows that dissect the most pressing issues of the day and ask challenging questions of those in positions of influence, in-depth feature articles and expert analysis and opinion, as well as on-the-ground perspectives and insights from our team of correspondents across the world – all illustrated with powerful photography and interactive graphics that bring the story to life at the fingertips of the user.
The magazine will introduce the reader to the full depth and breadth of Al Jazeera’s coverage – enabling them to discover, explore and consume it in the way that best suits them.
Al Jazeera English’s in-depth approach to journalism has won it numerous awards and plaudits over the years. It is the current RTS News Channel of the Year and Freesat Best News Channel. In the last year, Al Jazeera English has also picked up the Columbia Journalism award, a DuPont award and a George Polk award.
What's New in Version 3.2.1
An important update to fix displaying the app correctly on iPhone 6 Plus.
Excellent journalism and great app.
Let me say that if bias is a concern, I'm sure that one is here but it is quite subtle, especially in comparison with Fox News and friends. I think this is excellent journalism with a bias that is refreshing because it isn't Western, and thus I can read about the world through a different lens than any found in a mainstream Western media outlet. I don't believe that it's possible for any media outlet to be completely bias-free, even if they are wholly independent (and Al Jazeera is not, as it is owned by the Qatar elite). I doubt it possible for a human being to ingest and report on information without the end product being informed by personal bias, unless Buddha is a journalist. I appreciate that Al Jazeera gives me hard journalism without any celebrity three-ring circus distractions to detract from the dignity of the tone (or distract from the importance of the socio-political issues that are the primary focus). And the app works.
This is one of the few publications I can count on for consistent hard news from diverse sources, written and photographed by true professionals. I'm terrified of this magazine being killed off at some point because it's too good to exist in our cycle of dumb news and worthless content.
For now, I'll remain hopeful that this resource sticks around. Hopefully if you're reading this, you'll spend some quality time with it.
One of the best news/issues magazines available today. Clearly juxtaposed to other outlets, delivering clear and competently articulated content without the usual film of bias. I enjoy reading it every time; love how full and rich the reporting, how a feature story is given enough content to develop a richer understanding.
