Al Jazeerah typically has a pan Arab / Arab nationalist view on most events. Given Sunni are the majority, that seeps into their views on issues - what staff they have that are Shia are likely to be secularists.

I wouldn't call al Jazeerah coverage of Iraq pro-murder the Shia rather as profoundly blind to the real implications of intra-Arab sectarians. They are simply quite utterly blind to it, and reflexively sympathetic to the Sunni.
