Posted on 01/03/2013 5:55:41 AM PST by sheikdetailfeather
As NewsBusters reported Wednesday, Al Jazeera entered into an agreement to buy Al Gore's failing network Current TV.
Hours later, as a result of the purchase, Time Warner Cable dropped the station with a message reading to viewers "This channel is no longer available on Time Warner Cable."
According to multiple news sources, Current co-founder Joel Hyatt said in a statement that TWC dropped his TV network because TWC "did not consent to the sale to Al Jazeera."
Current will no longer be carried on TWC," wrote Hyatt. "This is unfortunate, but I am confident that Al Jazeera America will earn significant additional carriage in the months and years ahead."

Glenn Beck Tried to Buy Current TV But Was Rejected
Every cable TV company and Satalite company should all follow suit. Islam propaganda does not have to expand in this country.
Our cable provider is Bright House. I sent them a message requesting they follow Time Warner’s lead and drop Current due to the fact that Al Jazeera is taking it over. Here’s their corporate webpage. If you have this cable provider, please contact them.
......”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.”......
In other words, Glenn Beck was not aligned with Current TV’s point of view, but Al Jazeera was!!!!
This is yet another case of the “progressives” embracing our 1400-year enemy, islam, and abhorring the American right!!!!
Anyone who think that it is “extreme” to call islam our 1400-year enemy should read this:
They should also realize that the author of this piece, St. John of Damascus, knew islam up close and personal. Like his father before him, he had been the chief minister to the Caliph.
oh no, they’re a “legitimate news operation”... /sarc
He’s talking about that, now.
Thanks for the link. We all need to ensure our cable providers know our sentiments.
“meaning a $100 million pay-day for Gore, who was reportedly eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31 in order to avoid higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1.”
daym two faced liberal scum. Pay your damn fair share Al!
I have PRISM TV through Centurylink telephone and they do not have Current tv. May I also add that they hooked up my service, the picture was crystal clear compared to my former cable company Brighthouse because it is a direct hookup and does not need to be converted by the cable box to digital. I was shocked! HD was not all washed out. This is just for your own information. I am quite pleased with the selection of channels which includes Fox Business and at least they do not have Current tv!
Just repeating the news, with an additional detail:
Glenn Beck approached the network about purchasing Current TV, but was REBUFFED.
And get this, deliberately. The network said they did not agree with Algore on philosophy.
Then the network turned around and later sold to Al-J.
Correction, the network said they did not agree with Glen Beck.
But Al-J is fine.
Obamas Tax Evaders of the Year; Update: Add Al Gore to the list
It’s been on fios for a while.
Did a double take then updated the TiVo channels.
The real reason is that CNN viewers would leave them for aljazeera .
So radical liberal neo-communism is okay with Time Warner but fanatical Islamic rantings are not. I guess that’s what you’d expect from a company run by a bunch of Jews but it is amazing how they miss how anti-Semitic much of the Left has become.
Not a sudden outbreak of patriotism by TWC.
They just figure they can hold up a bunch of wealthy A-rabs for a higher carriage fee.
