Al-Jazeera ’s Political Talk Shows A decade after its emergence, Al-Jazeera ’s has quickly acquired a large audience Al-Jazeera ’s different “cross-fire” types of political talk shows, its most revolutionary programmes, are watched by large audiences, because they debate on some of the most sensitive issues in Arab society Thus, they are being assumed the role, among other things, to spreading democratic attitudes, as well as building the foundations of a radically new pluralist culture of political debate, necessary for the development and functioning of a herrschaftsfreie public sphere, where different discourses compete discursively and argumentatively over the hearts and minds of Arab people

Al-Jazeera ’s Political Talk Shows Al-Jazeera’s motto “ opinion and counter-opinion ” has given it the reputation that its political talk shows function as a free, independent and open critical public space, where Arab citizens can speak and expect to be heard However, Al-Jazeera has been often accused that its political talk shows seek “sensationalism” and the promotion of the culture of conflict rather than consensus It has been reported that professional standards of objectivity and balanced journalism have not crystallised so far in Al-Jazeera’s journalistic work

Al-Jazeera ’s Political Talk Shows Other accounts argue that Al-Jazeera ’s political talk shows have “degenerated into unproductive shouting matches in which abuse replaced dialogue” Instead of functioning as a platform for rational debate, Al-Jazeera ’s political talk shows have turned out to be a platform of political emotionalism and “a vehicle for the collective venting of emotion”

Al-Jazeera ’s Political Talk Shows One common explanation among journalists, communication scholars and policy makers for this degeneration of the political talk shows is that the status of media ethics in the Arab satellite broadcasting is not professional enough

Al-Jazeera ’s Political Talk Shows However, it can be argued that the problem of media ethics is not only influenced by the hard-to-die tradition of authoritarian grip over media institutions and weak professional background but also by the Arab passive and mediot (idiot of the media) audience, with its uncritical media habitus

Al-Jazeera ’s Political Talk Shows Under the combined impacts of Arab and American pressures, Al-Jazeera formulated during its first “World Forum” in Doha in July 2004 its one-page “ Code of Ethics ” In it, Al - Jazeera pledges, among other things, to adhere to journalistic standards of balance and independence (1) to treat audiences with respect (3) to present diverse points of view (5) to distinguish between news and opinion (see, Al- Jazeera’s Code of Ethics )
