Al Jazeera Acquires Al Gore’s Current TV; Time Warner Cable Drops Channel. Good for Time-Warner. If AT & T, Comcast, Direct TV, and 4DTV don’t dump them, too, we wonder if anyone will dump them as retaliation?

Are they going to re-name it the Algorezeera network? And would anyone know the difference?

We are proud to deliver programming for all cultures and viewpoints including channels like Fox News, MSNBC and TheBlaze.

No mention of Al Jazeera. But that’s probably because they don’t want to ruffle feathers.

You should email them back and ask if they approve of the terrorism channel.

“DISH serves diverse communities….”

You should email them back and ask them when their Conservative, pro-Christian, pro-Life programming aires.

Right. Diversity simply means different.. Why is that inherently good?

Supposedly Current refused to sell to Glenn Beck because “he didn’t represent (Current) ownership’s views.” No kidding! But Al Jazeera sure as hell represents Alwhore’s views. Others have also mentioned that Al Jazeera is pretty pro oil as well, not that I ever thought Al Whore actually gives a shit personally about all the baloney he spews out.
It’s all about making a buck. Yes I’m all for making a buck too, but I have a pretty low opinion of how scammers (like Alwhore) make their bucks. Al Jazeera may be Anti-America but at least they are honest about what they are, unlike Current.

All the talent is abandoning the ship, too. Granholm only worked there two months. Guess she didn’t want to wear a burqa.

I got to be real I heard it of it once when Gorey created it never again until this week. If it was mentioned here I probably dont remember because it wasn’t that important to me.

Joy Bewhore looks forward to working for Al-Jazeera, she shares the same distaste for America as they do, with the one exception of American dollars, which they both love.

Beck would have likely released her from her contract. Al Jazeera will be more than happy having a Jew on the payroll. That will give them a veneer of tolerance and diversity that the US liberal chattering class can get all excited about over their Sunday AM mimosas

She really believes that she will have her job? I think they paid for the access to the homes that Current TV had the access to, not for Current TV itself (we will see of course).
