Gore Turned Down Glenn Beck For Qatar
Commentary Magazine ^ | 03 January 2013 | Alana Goodman

Posted on 01/03/2013 2:07:17 PM PST by zeestephen

Glen Beck was too "right wing" - So Gore sold to "an authoritarian-Islamist government that has criminalized homosexuality, discriminates against non-Muslims, prosecutes journalists, and has a “Not Free” rating from Freedom House."

Not surprising, Democrats hate Christians and Mormons, they hate the followers of Jesus, they are united with the muslims in their hatred of Christians, that’s why they conspire and support each other, soon, they will turn on each other,then, well read the Good Book.

Another example showing that there is nobody so vile, dangerous & disgusting that a leftist wouldn’t choose them as an ally over their conservative countrymen.

The Blaze “reached out to them to buy it,” a source familiar with the talks told POLITICO. “They would have replaced Current programming with The Blaze programming, but were told on initial calls that [Current] wouldn’t sell to someone they weren’t ideologically in line with.”

Welcome to Al-Gore-Jazeera TV!!!

No, you see; Beck believes in strange things like the Constitution and freedom. This sale is a perfect fit for Algore.

The Gore people need to reveal how much Beck offered for the network and how much they sold the network to Qatar.

If Qatar offered less than Beck, Gore is an idiot.

Was Current a multi-owner corporation rather than being wholly owned by Gore? If so, then he might have failed in his fiduciary responsibility to the other shareholders if he passed on a better offer.

I heard a few minutes right at the beginning of Beck's show, so I don't know if the story continued, but apparently the potential offer was shot down when he found out that it was Beck expressing interest before a dollar figure was even mentioned.

Gore is living the libtard ideology, what would one expect?

And Glenn ain’t the most conservative person I’ve ever listened to, just to be clear.

Most likely Beck would just be the lead player in a syndicate of investors.

Not in his personal life, but you will be hard pressed to show me better, when it comes to Government.

Show me any monied conservative that is trying to do even a little of what Beck is attempting. I hate to say it but Beck is doing what mainline Christians should be doing, but don't.

Also listed as a defendant in the lawsuit is the Arab TV network Al-Jazeera. “Defendant Mohammed Jaseem al-Ali and two other employees of Al-Jazeera are identified in documents captured in the April 2003 U.S. military action in Iraq as having received substantial funding from the Iraqi regime in exchange for acting as liaisons between Iraq and al-Qaida. One document reveals that Al-Jazeera passed letters from Osama bin Laden to Saddam Hussein,” the complaint alleges. ————Iraq-al-Qaida link revealed: Saddam part of ‘money-laundering op’ for Islamic terror group WorldNetDaily.com ^ | Tuesday, September 30, 2003 | Scott L.

He left the marines last August and spent some miserable months, unemployed and eating into his modest savings, before he accepted al-Jazeera's offer.

The danger Rushing now faces is that he may be accused of going from one one-sided media operation to another. After all, he is shown in Control Room criticising al-Jazeera's bias, comparing it to Fox News "at the other end of the spectrum".

He admits that he is unaware whether al-Jazeera's Arabic broadcasts have got any better. "I don't know where they're at right now. I don't get a chance to watch it, and if I could I don't understand it," he says. "I think there's going to be a difficult time overcoming the [al Jazeera] brand in America."

It may turn out to be impossible. The new English-language al-Jazeera International has yet to find a US cable outlet prepared to carry its broadcasts. mediaguardian

Looks like al Jazeera's found its outlet. This is the last of an old article about on one of the silly accusations against Bush where they claimed, with straight faces- that Bush seriously threatened al Jazeera by telling Blair he was going to bomb al Jazeera and only quick thinking by Blair saved free speech from George Bush.

Beck could have met the Qatari bid but was rejected out of hand. What does that tell you?

It tells me that a double-reject from the Ivy League who lost his wife of 40 freaking years because he became a nouveau riche motard, and then -- and only then -- found skanky women would sleep with him, has potent daddy issues.

This shows the true colors of the “progressives.”

Please call your TV provider and ask them to drop Current, as Time Warner has. Ask them to fill the channel with Blaze TV.

Here is where it can be found:
DirecTV Channel 358
Comcast Channel 107
Dish Network Channel 215
Verizon FiOS Channel 192
AT&T U-Verse Channle 189

If you have one of these TV providers, please ask them to drop Current, as Time Warner has. Suggest that they fill the channel with Blaze TV.

It would be one thing if he had sold out even that nutcase smear merchant Markos Moulitsas. But Al Jazeera is nothing but a propaganda outlet for the enemies of America.

Michael Savage said it well, and I agree with him:

That's the almost zero-rated TV channel that was founded by that quisling Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago.

Current TV will now provide the Arab news giant with something it has looked for years to acquire: a pathway into American living rooms.

Al Gore's Current TV is now available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the U.S. that have cable or satellite TV.

How do you feel about an Arab network buying Al Gore's Current TV?

How does the FCC allow such a sale? Should they block such a sale?

Absolutely.

What does this tell you about the so-called "progressives"?

"Progressive" is a code word for anti-American.
