Al Gore's Current TV sells out US operations to Al Jazeera



quote:

Al Jazeera is making a big purchase: Current TV, the low-rated news channel co-founded by Al Gore.

The New York Times reports that the Qatar-based cable news company is buying Current TV, which had no comment on the possible sale.

Current TV is available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service, which would help Al Jazeera become more prominent in America.

Current TV countersued Keith Olbermann last year after he was fired

According to Nielsen, Current is averaging about 42,000 viewers on a typical night.

Gore and businessman Joel Hyatt launched Current TV in 2005.
Quite a perspective setter

That translates into almost ZERO advertising rates. More viewers watch C-SPAN than that.

Didn't Comcast spend a shitton of money trying to keep Al Jazeera out of the US?

United States of Sharia

I do wonder where the outrage is from the democrat supporters and voters for V.P. of the United States of America, Al Gore?

Please stop telling all of us who want to support good men and women of moral character, sound reasoning ability, and true leaders who desire to work for the people of America how wonderful the democrat electorate is when you continue to delude yourself in following such personalities.

Wow.

Good. Maybe we'll have a chance at some decent media coverage in this country for a change.
