From the "What Could Possibly Go Wrong" Department
Ready for a media train wreck?
The BBC is all set to take on Al Jazeera on its home ground by launching a new television news channel in Arabic.
The main objective is to compete with Al Jazeera, which was launched in 1996 and which has since challenged the western domination of television news agendas by providing alternative perspectives of global events.
Alternative. Inaccurate. Take your pick.
The BBC had previously entered the Arabic television market, in conjunction with the Saudi-owned company Orbit, but it foundered in 1996 following issues of editorial control.
Now there's a shock.
