Al-Jazeera went live early yesterday with its English-language Web site -- and the Qatar-based satellite network immediately assumed a posture likely
to provoke Western readers.
The site (english.aljazeera.net) has promised to offer a different perspective than those of Western media and has stuck to its word. Its graphic
photos of dead U.S. soldiers, pointed headlines and opinionated articles -- many of them without reporters' bylines -- will provide plenty of fodder
for critics of the Middle Eastern news organization. The content is produced separately from its Arabic-language counterpart.
