This paper aims to identify the similarities and differences between Al-Jazeera English (AJE) and Al-Jazeera Arabic (AJA) according to their representation by country and region on the one hand and story placement and story type on the other. Particular attention is given to the Arab countries and the region of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The study analyzes the content of the main evening (KSA time) news bulletins of the two channels over a six-month period (November 2006 – May 2007), in which 477 news stories are examined. The newscasts of AJE and AJA are analyzed over two rolling weeks and two constructed weeks.
