Did Glenn Beck try to buy Current TV?

The Wall Street Journal reports:


Mr. Hyatt said they agreed to sell to Al Jazeera in part because “Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current,” including “to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard” and “to speak truth to power.” Other suitors who didn’t share Current’s ideology were rebuffed. Glenn Beck’s The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to a person familiar with the negotiations.

Will never understand why conservatives don't throw this type of stuff into the faces of Obama's Jewish voters.

First I am not exactly sure what stuff you are referring to.

Second most us Jewish Democrats are not tremendously caught in identity politics (or at least as it relates to Jews, some are certainly caught up in other forms of identity politics) but rather use our background and upbringing to inform our politics on a whole range of issues.

I wouldn't presume to speak for all Jews, but for many of us that leads us to a liberal perspective.

Edit: Also we are about 2% of the population at most, I love that we are seen as having tremendous power, but in terms of votes, we don't have it.

As hard as I try, I'm not sure that I understand exactly what you're saying.

And I would recommend you read nobodytooimportant's post above.
