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


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.

eta, on further reflection I am certain that is the case as they make a big deal out of receiving no corporation funding/advertising and claim that they are the people's network free of all bias except thier own.

Are you sure you aren't confusing it with Link TV? What you're describing sounds like that network.

Unfortunately, many folks in high places are opposed to decent media coverage.
quote:

Time Warner Cable pulled the plug on Current TV just hours after news of the cable channel's sale to Al Jazeera became official.

"This channel is no longer available on Time Warner Cable," read an on-screen message where Current TV used to be found.

Al Jazeera took a major step into the U.S. cable market Wednesday by acquiring beleaguered Current TV and announcing plans for a U.S.-based news network to be called Al Jazeera America. But while the new channel will soon be available in 40 million households, Al Jazeera faced a setback when Time Warner Cable -- which reaches 12 million homes -- announced it was dropping the low-rated Current, which occupied a spot that could have been switched to Al Jazeera America.

Joel Hyatt, who co-founded Current TV with former Vice President Al Gore, told staff in a Wednesday night memo that Time Warner Cable "did not consent to the sale to Al Jazeera."

"Consequently, Current will no longer be carried on TWC," Hyatt wrote. "This is unfortunate, but I am confident that Al Jazeera America will earn significant additional carriage in the months and years ahead."

A Time Warner Cable spokesman said in a statement that "our agreement with Current will be terminated and we will no longer be carrying the channel."

Some media observers interpreted the move as motivated by politics.

I noticed that bit of wording too, he is definitely Otto. Why is it that the liberals that get banned are so freely able to manufacture an alter?


You're right as you can tell my reading this board, liberals get special treatment. We are actually allowed to whack 10 posts a month that don't toe the liberally line. Plus of course any post that uses the word us and has a typo where the word of is accidentally not used, only liberal alters are allowed to use that combination
