WTF: “Al-Jazeera buys Current TV from Al Gore”

If you were a fence sitter, if you thought that there was no complicity between the American left and the forces who want to destroy western civilization, here is what is coming to pass:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Al-Jazeera, the Pan-Arab news channel that struggled to win space on American cable television, has acquired Current TV, boosting its reach in the U.S. nearly ninefold to about 40 million homes. With a focus on U.S. news, it plans to rebrand the left-leaning news network that cofounder Al Gore couldn’t make relevant.

The former vice president confirmed the sale Wednesday, saying in a statement that Al-Jazeera 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.”

The acquisition lifts Al-Jazeera’s reach beyond a few large U.S. metropolitan areas including New York and Washington, where about 4.7 million homes can now watch Al-Jazeera English.

Al-Jazeera, owned by the government of Qatar, plans to gradually transform Current into a network called Al-Jazeera America by adding five to 10 new U.S. bureaus beyond the five it has now and hiring more journalists. More than half of the content will be U.S. news and the network will have its headquarters in New York, spokesman Stan Collender said.”

    Notice they got the deal done before the end of the year so Algore could avoid “paying his fair share” as part of Obama’s tax increases. They talk big shit about taxes but actions speak louder than words.

    Speaking of actions, notice that mister global warming walks away with millions of petro-dollars as part of this deal. Millions made by dumping CO2 into the atmosphere.

    They are all hypocrites.

    Did Al do this while stuck in a closet in Copenhagen with a massuese?
    Al Gore to Al Jazeera – a bit of irony. The purchasing entity will replace all programming with their own programming.
