Al-Jazeera the Arab-version of Fox?

"Westerners may still debate whether Al-Jazeera provides forward-thinking programming or jihadist propaganda, but soon more of them will be able to judge the controversial channel's brand of programming for themselves."

What this quote is portraying is how Al-Jazerra is now a problem in the media sense. With this much influence on a certain area or certain religion, Al-Jazerra has become one of the largest Arab viewed stations. With them having such an influence it seems they are becoming a the new fox for the Arab viewers. They seem to use the same tactics and same propaganda as fox, but for us it is as is fox is to them. We aren't going to like to watch dead U.S. soldiers as Arab's and Iraqi's don't like seeing dead Iraqi soldiers, but the news plays those images and are used as propaganda and that's is the connection between the two stations. With Al-jazeera becoming so large as a station, they are ready for mainstream and maybe even become as powerful as the fox news station.
