Back when the channel was launched, there was much frustration on the between the US government and the Arab Channels. The reason was that most of the content on these channels inculcated anti-American spirit as the Arabs were quite against the policies of American government. There was a lot of heat on this matter in the United States. So AlHurra news was launched in 2004, with a primary goal to give a rather balanced image of the current situations of the country. This could help in improving the image of the United States in the Arabic World.
