It's Bin A While

From Newsvine: Bin Laden Praises Martyrdom in New Video
The authenticity of the video could not be verified, but it … carried the logo of as-Sahab, al-Qaida's media production wing.
Can somebody explain to me how al-Qaida can be both a loosely-connected organisation consisting of independent and mutually unaware sleeper cells, and have a media production wing? They make it sound like freakin' Viacom.

Also, since when did the AP switch to the British transliteration of al-Qaida (they always used to go with 'al Qaeda')?
