More than 100 staff members at the Qatar-based news site Al Jazeera signed an open letter objecting to the launch of a new right-wing news outlet from their parent company, according to The Guardian.

Al Jazeera recently launched “Rightly,” a conservative news outlet aiming to expand the company’s reach to right-of-center segments of the public.

More than 100 Al Jazeera staff members have signed a letter to management saying the launch of this new right-wing outlet will “irreparably tarnish the network’s brand and work,” according to the Guardian.
