Reports indicate that Al Jazeera is to open an office in Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

This is quite a change since the times when Al Jazeera was frequently railed against by the powers that be in the Kingdom for its ‘unfair’ reporting. This resulted in the removal of the Saudi Ambassador from Qatar from 2002 to 2008. He only returned on the understanding that Al Jazeera’s coverage of the Kingdom be ‘reigned in’ to some degree. Most media commentators agree that this has happened; that Al Jazeera’s coverage of the Kingdom has indeed since become much more sedate.
