The Wall Street Journal reports that “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.”
Current TV is now owned by Al-Jazeera, the Qatar-owned Pan-Arab news channel that Gore says in a statement shares Current TV’s mission to “give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.”
Okay take let’s take the statement “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,”
I think I understand you want to sell the network to someone of your mindset. What about hey say sell the network to Keith Olbermann? I am sure Olbermann has repackaged himself and is now very successful with his own blogs and new media network. I would think Al Gore would get past firing him because Keith didn’t like the Limo Drivers assigned to him. You know forgive and forget among liberals.
Oh, wait. It turns out Keith Olbermann is taking pictures of lightening and buildings around New York City and giving rambling non-sensical rants on You Tube about God knows what. He really doesn’t have a blog and a new media network – he has become a really bad parody of himself. My bad.
Al sell the network to MSNBC for $1 and a used puck bag where they can put some of the loonier types over there – sort of like a developmental farm system to become bigger and better Democrat Party Propagandists.
Sell to anybody in America or anyone who’s Overlords don’t have “Eliminate Israel forever” as their mission statement.
PS: Time-Warner has dropped Current TV from its cable systems – bully for them.
