Al Jazeera English nominated for Emmy

Al Jazeera English was nominated for an International News Emmy on Wednesday for its coverage of the 2009 Gaza War.

While most news networks covered the war solely from the perspective of Israel, Al Jazeera English was one of the only networks to have reporters stationed in Gaza.

Other nominees for the International News Emmy include:

  • Russia’s RT channel for its coverage of President Obama’s July 2009 trip to Russia
  • Britain’s Sky News for its reporting on the Taliban in Swat Valley
  • Brazil’s TV Globo for its in-depth look at the Nov. 2009 blackout in Brazil

I had the opportunity to intern for AJE back in the summer of 2008.  And its staff let me use its camera equipment to produce a short documentary about the international news organization.  I reposted it below.
