Can't imagine why you weren't watching.
When fossil fuel-phobic Al Gore sold his âCurrent TVâ network to Al Jazeera, we noted the oil-based irony and mourned the passing of our favorite primetime lineup. After all, Current had been home to crackpots like Keith Olbermann and Dating Game contestants like Jennifer Granholm for the better part of ten years. That kind of crazy is hard to come by and we knew that we wouldnât see anything quite like Current again. MSNBC does itâs best to fill the void, but itâs just not the same.
Anyway, Al Jazeera America premiered a little over two years ago, and it was hailed by the left as a breath of fresh air. Finally, unbiased individuals would be doing serious news about serious international affairs. Folks like Hillary Clinton had long been suggesting that Al Jazeeraâs U.S. viewership was skyrocketing because unlike American media, they did âreal news.â
Here she is in 2011, arguing that Americans simply canât get enough Al Jazeera:
I guess the Muzzies weren’t supplying enough breaths of fresh air for the commie libs.
Isn’t this the outfit sold by Al Gore to the oil-rich Arabs for over ONE BILLION DOLLARS..?
Maybe this bankruptcy was PLANNED and it was a stealthy BRIBE?
Just being paranoid, here...
I think this was originally Al Gore’s “Real TV”...?
It was. It was pegged ‘AlGoreZeera’.
They cut my interview. Waaaaa!
Gee... What a shame...
Al Gore has a lot of faults, but he isn’t stupid.
He won a Nobel prize for saying the earth was doomed in ten years. Every prediction and model the IPCC used to show the near future was grossly wrong. If those were so off, imagine how much more off they are with the future.
Sorry, Gore is stupid, but liberals like what he gets accomplished.
Gore was like this close || to making you buy the air you breath on his carbon exchange. He is the king of the lilly whites.
His channel was called “Undertow TV”. It lasted 7 years otr so befor the Sand people bought him off.
Good. Now that the channel is vacated, we can get carriage for One America and The Blaze.
I really am looking forward to One America on Comcast and The Dish...
Any way to get rid of Megyn Whatshername and Geraldo and Juan Williams...
I actually liked some of their programming a few years back but, somehow lost interest...
