In the initial stage of the Afghanistan crisis, American audiences received a daily dose of Al-Jazeera. In covering this crisis, CNN and other news stations that normally might have broken the news themselves used AlJazeera footage.

This approach is what network officials consider best for public discussion and political activity in the Middle East. Any viewer of Al-Jazeera immediately notices the degree of sophistication and intellect reflected in many of the network's talk shows and programs. A comprehensive discussion from all possible angles on many issues—including Islamic law, Arab nationalism, and freedom of expression—is bound to nourish democracy and free speech in an Arab world that has seldom enjoyed such privileges.
