    China is still too nice to Al Jazeera News Channel, compare to what US did to them.

    Another misleading title.

    Only the English Channel is gonna be closed if Chinese authority doesn't renew the approval in time. The Arabic news Channel of Al Jazeera is still working so far.

    Personally, I think the English langauge channel is much more professional and balanced when compared to the arabic news channel

    The Arabic channel focuses too much on ME politics to be a world news channel
