Al Jazeera pushed back Wednesday against Republican efforts to force the Qatar-based media outlet to register as a foreign agent.
Six GOP senators and two GOP representatives sent a letter to the Justice Department on Wednesday asking the Department of Justice to review whether the network should register as a foreign agent, alleging “Al Jazeera is a messaging tool for the Qatari government” and asking the DOJ to take action in enforcing the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
The article goes on to state the following:
Al Jazeera Media Network responded in a statement to the Washington Examiner, claiming that Al Jazeera “is not owned by Qatar” and that “its reporting is not directed or controlled by the Qatari government nor does it reflect any government viewpoint.”
