Gore sells out.

Former President Al Gore sells Current TV .

The new  year swings in with a major Media shock . Al Gore sold his Current TV to Al-Jazeera. It's the oddest and most Un- American move ever made by a rich American . Gore reaped a good  100 million dollars , by  the lowest market  standards Gore undersold Current TV's value . I would have been more happier had he sold Current TV to CNN , or CNBC . etc. Nope he chose to sell to a Saudi Arabian TV media source  that has been known for it's seemingly Pro-Terrorist , and anti- American stance .Current is really the only consistent source of documentary style programming in regards to the issue of the War on Drugs. Will the new ownership continue the direction that Current TV has taken in regards to that issue? There are countless Americans who have become educated on the issues, and are finally seeing the harm that our current prohibition has produced. It would be a shame to see that end. Before Al-Jazeera bought Current TV,  ** TheBlaze looked into buying it but we were rejected by progressive owners. Note: We would have put #TheBlazeTV in millions of homes across the country, not the existing line up.Well, how could Al Gore possibly refuse such an appealing offer?  After all, people who watch Bill Press and Stephanie Miller will happily give them up for a chance to watch Blaze TV.Atlantic Wire’s report  confirms that Beck did indeed approach Current TV a year ago. The big question, perhaps, is what Al Jazeera plans to do with its new reach into America. "They could pitch it squarely at the Left as some sort of foreign-policy-heavy adjunct to MSNBC, or they could emphasize kinda sorta straight news reporting on the Arab Spring and Middle East as an alternative to CNN," Hot Air's Allahpundit suggests. Whatever path it takes, "the acquisition is a coming of age moment" for  # Al Jazeera, says Brian Stelter at The New York Times. The globally successful and well-regarded Arab network has convinced "Gore and the other owners of Current that it has the journalistic muscle and the money to compete head-to-head with CNN and other news channels in the United States." Now it just has to convince Americans to tune in. “By acquiring Current TV, Al Jazeera will significantly expand our existing distribution footprint in the U.S., as well as increase our news gathering and reporting efforts in America,” Al Jazeera Director General Ahmed bin Jassim Al Thani said in a news release. “We look forward to working together with our new cable and satellite partners to serve our new audiences across the U.S.”The new channel, which will provide domestic and international news for a U.S. audience, will be based in New York, with plans to open up new bureaus across the United States and double the network’s staff there to more than 300 employees, the network said.


 **Glenn Beck and his fans apparently missed the fact that his old home of Fox News is owned by Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal (with a 7% stake, the largest shareholder after the Murdochs’ News Corp), whom one of their own (Farah of World Net Dailyaccused of blaming America for 9/11 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 has been dubbed “the most powerful voice of the Muslim Brotherhood.” And Pamela Geller has noted that “Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years been the recipient of numerous Al Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies.”
