Current TV Staffers Blast ‘Bulls---ter’ Al Gore for Selling Out to Big Oil
http://newsbusters.org ^ | January 08, 2013 | Matthew Sheffield

Former vice president Al Gore, newly flush with cash from his sale of his Current TV to Al Qaeda's favorite TV channel, Al Jazeera, did not even bother to show up for the first meeting between the Current staff and the new ownership.

New York Post TV critic Linda Stasi has the story:



Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.

“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.

“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”

The meeting, while not contentious, was, according to staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, miserable.

Gore was also blasted by his former employees for his hypocrisy in trying to complete the Current sale in 2012 in order to evade higher tax rates, despite the fact that just two months prior, he had said the following:

"The single most popular proposal we had was to reduce taxes on working people and lift the higher rate. Let's give an incentive to work, and let's ask the most fortunate in the society, including me and you, to do our fair share.

On the one hand, anything that p!sses-off Current TV staff makes me smile.

On the other hand, ....

Nope. Still smiling.

At the meeting, the staff was informed that if they did not convert to Islam, they would lose their heads jobs.

Sounds like they’re going to get a little education on Islam, first hand. I bet these muzzies are going to be just peachy to work for. A bunch of Kalifornica metrosexuals and womyn workin’ for moooslims. It does make you smile.

Come to think of it, I don’t think they’ll be educated. They’ll just be miserable.

It still makes me smile :-)

Gore to Current TV staffers: I’ve used you, now I’m done with you.

Experience is indeed a harsh schoolmaster.

Silly libs, this sale is like a double entendre which soars clear completely over Current TV staff's comprehension .

Al Gore despises America and American oil as his propaganda is making him wealthy beyond his wildest dreams.

Hence the sale of Current TV to Arab al-Jiz, which will accelerate and intensify green energy propaganda to tie (even tighter) the hands of energy producers here in The West, the consequence of which enriches the Arab oil producing nation which owns/runs Al Jiz/CurrentTV propaganda and funds global jihad (economic, da'wa, terror, demographic hijra/invasion etc.).

If they think they’re shell shocked now, just wait til they get the work rules.
1. All food and drink must be halal. No pork products
anywhere on the grounds.
2. Women shall dress modestly.
3. Women shall cover their heads.
4. All infidel, er non-Muslim employees must submit
to a Orientation, er Indoctrination, er
Familiarization with Islam and how to act
accordingly.
5. Infidel, er non-Muslim employees will submit part of
their pay. This will be covered in the Orientation.
6. Infidel employees will observe the five daily prayer
periods by remaining silent. Texting, and emailing
are forbidden.
7. Employee disputes will be handled by Sharia.

Employees of Current TV who are fall under the “Dogs, Pigs, and Apes” catagory are terminated immediately. You will be given a fair chance to disappear through the rear exit.

Ha HA thats good.

Seriously who watches Current TV anyway, and now that Big Mo’s Al Jizzera runs it that should put it out of its misery.

Slowly, Big Al Gorezera is destroying what little credibility he has with the Left and the KKK - Klimate Khange Kooks. But he has a Granny-sized mattress full of money to solace him and his until he meets his Maker.

Al Gore has no integrity.

He made a fortune touting Global Warming, He knew then it was BS, but he was making money off it.

Now he sells a TV station to a terrorist organisation for the Money.

What is hard to understand. Al Gore is a typical lying hypocrit asshole.

Perhaps now people will believe what conservatives have said about Gopre from the beginning.

We dodged the bullet when we elected George Bush, but they fired another with Obama and we took that one in the butt cheeks.

Al couldn’t make the meeting:
1) His couldn’t find a charging station for his EV
2) His plane was grounded because of an Ice Storm
3) His car was stolen from a massage parlour parking lot
4) He was sidetracked by attending an annual Save the Polar Bears event.
5) He went to Florida to once again recount the votes.

Current TV staffers:

“Why is the window open . . . . Where’s my purse . . . Why is my back sticky?”

lolol :snort: Things are going to get a lit-tle interesting pretty soon. I’m praying for them that they don’t fall back into their slumbers & that they get stronger.
(These guys are probably just ticked off that they were expendable, though. Useful idiots always are. Until they’re shot.)

Al is just a more successful model of the slick politician that the Democrats so loved in John Edwards. Successful in the light that he did not parade his affairs nor cheat on a dying wife. In other aspects these 2 one-time VP Candidates are quite similar! (Yeah, I know he actually got the job, so what!)

Selling out? Algore had a fortune in Occidental Oil stock in the ‘80s and ‘90s. This is not new for him.
