Launched in London inand printed on four continents in 14 cities. The paper’s first editor-in-chief Jihad Khazen,  now a columnist and editor emeritus for the rival pan-Arab daily Al-Hayatgave credit to Hisham Hafizwith the subsequent support of his brother Mohammed Ali Hafez, for the initial idea of establishing an Arabic-language newspaper in London. After the news of the paper’s first big scoop regarding the formation of the U. Central Command for the Middle Eastthe still new newspaper made its name through the controversy surrounding the Egypt—Israel Peace Treaty.
Then, Sadat held a press conference with the new Asharq Al Awsat bureau chief by his side in which the Egyptian president attacked the newspaper and its stance toward the peace process in general, citing his suspicions of the bureau chief’s “high” salary, and accusing Prince Fahd of using the newspaper as a weapon against Egypt and the Egyptian president personally.
Khazen later reminisced about the events, saying: Former editor was Tariq Alhomayed whose leadership earned mixed reviews as it was associated with much criticism of Asharq Al-Awsat. Though the newspaper is owned by Faisal bin Salmanand is considered more pro-Saudi than rival Al-Hayat Asharq Al-Awsat has billed itself as the “leading international Arabic paper,” as it was the first Arabic daily to use satellite transmission for simultaneous printing in a number of sites across the world.
The paper’s chief competitors in Saudi Arabia are Al Hayat and Okaz ; globally, its chief competitor is Al Hayatthough it is often paired with Al-Quds Al-Arabi which is considered to be its polar opposite. The highlight of that phase was when the paper published three reports about the Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim al-Thani’s trip to an Arab foreign ministers’ conference in Beirut during the Lebanon conflict in August When Sheikh Hamad denied the allegations in the first story, Asharq Al Awsat printed a second article, accusing him of lying.
A third piece, written by Alhomayed himself, repeated the claims. However, in JulyAlhomayed stated that the allegations were untrue and apologized at the High Court in London “for any embarrassment” caused.
Sheikh Hamad’s solicitor, Cameron Qwsat, said: Allegations of that nature at that time could have been damaging to him and Qatar. The paper has accepted that it got it wrong. My client is happy with that—there was never anything more in it for him than getting xwsat admission.
However, on another occasion Asharq Al Awsat was accused of publishing a false interview regarding football club Portsmouth. The following day The Guardian mentioned achar the interview was actually true.
Critics of Alhomayed claim he bans Asharq Al Awsat writers who are highly acuark of Saudi Arabia or its allies, although the allegations were never on solid ground except once for Mona Eltahawywho wrote she was banned  however, she was the one who stepped down. However, Al-Rashed’s banning caused quite an international stir in mid-September and Alhomayed told AFP that the newspaper never banned him—though nothing official was reported about the matter until 16 September when the paper quoted al-Rashed saying that he voluntarily stopped writing for them.
Alhomayed’s era witnessed some major Saudi-related stories being ignored or censored.

assat For example, under Alhomayed Asharq Al Awsat completely ignored the story of the Saudi princess who was granted asylum in the UK after facing death threats in her country for giving birth to ‘love-child’ of a British citizen  and the trial of a Gay Saudi Prince who murdered his servant in Under Alhomayed as well, Asharq Alawsat ignored many sensitive stories relating to Saudi Allies, such as the United Arab Emirates as it didn’t report on the infamous scandal of Emirati Sheikh Issa Bin Zayed who appeared torturing one of his workers  in a home-video which was leaked to the media.
One example acyark Alhomayed’s perceived bias towards his Arab allies was shown when he joined other Arab newspaper columnists in labeling US President Barack Obama as the lead contributor for Syria’s ongoing crisis for not accepting requests to take military action in Syria. Furthermore, Alhomayed was accused of having double standards for not reporting freely about his own country but having his reporters say as they wish about other, this was one acjark the examples that Hafiz Al Merazi, a TV presenter for Al Arabiya, used on live TV to portray bias in the Saudi-owned media outlets, such as Asharq Achaek Awsat.
