I am only talking about Al Jazeera English, not the real one.  It seems like they have been quite biased about China.  Does anyone know who own's al jazeera?

Isn't Al Jazeera English owned by CNN?  A lot of the head people are English or American.

If you are refering to the Canadian and Egyptian folks as "American", you would be mistaken.

I looked at the Directors and Deputy Directors profiles and only one of them was of arab descent (There are 5 directors total).  The head person is Tony Burman, a Canadian.
