Arab news network Al-Jazeera has purchased Al Gore's cable TV network Current TV, which it plans to turn into Al-Jazeera America. Will you tune in?
Oh the irony. The head of the Global Warming Church has to sell off his channel to a government that gets its money from exporting oil...
Sure. I can't trust the US media and currently get news from foreign websites. Al Jazeera is one of those sources already. I like Russian Times too! If our media reported the stories unbiasedly and not just offering opinion, I might return to US sources. Fat chance of that.
Al Jazeera doesn't receiving funding from people who push their political, religious or social beliefs into their programming and/or reporting. It's as close to objective media as there is, I will definitely be watching.
I already watch Al Jazeera. They are definitely the most unbiased network I've seen so far. Where are people seeing that they support terrorists?
Reading these comments I'm a little surprised that people think Al Jazeera is a terrorist group. A middle eastern name doesn't make it terrorist, do you people refuse to eat hummus too?
So we may have to turn in our guns and a pro terrorist network is coming to town. Does this sound wrong to anyone else???
I'm dumbfounded by the amount of people here that see a middle eastern name and assume its a terrorist group. How about you stop being close minded... People. Google it before you open your mouth at least. I personally will tune in unless my cable company is as close minded as some of you
Maybe we'll finally get coverage about Obamas drone strikes.
MSNBC isn't news. It's a bunch of like-minded hens gossiping about politics and tabloids.
Their news app is the most objective of any I've come across because they're not in any politicians pocket. I'll tune in.
It's actually a really great news service in the line of BBC more then anything else. They have top of the line international coverage and I really enjoy the lack of bluster you hear on American news.
Instead of "green" propaganda, they'll show Muslim extremist propaganda.....
Pass, I'd rather eat glass.
We get enough of that from CNN, NBC, abc, ap, CBS, ........
Al Jazeera has very unbiased journalists that focus on a part of the world that other sources don't. It is run from an Islamist majority country but has a very diverse journalist pool. It is no more pro Islam then American journalism is pro Christian. Or through the right wing lens, it's very scary
It is not a terrorist group people... Their news reporting is great and more professional than some news stations in the US (fox). Stop being biased and naive, do some research before you post and make yourself look dumb. The US is not the only "credible" source for news. We should welcome this.
I won't give them mlneg either. Whatever that is, I'm keeping it.
I tend to not support people who would like to see me dead.
Absolutely. Al Jazeera is pretty good. And it's ALWAYS a good thing to get as many perspectives as possible when it comes to current events etc
Between them, BBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC you might be able to piece together the actual truth.
Al Gore is an idiot.
It would do everyone some good to see the US through another's eyes. And yes, even your righteous position can withstand some scrutiny...if indeed it is righteous.
I have watched Al Jazeera in both the Arabic and English language. Those of you naive enough to think they are a "balanced" or reputable news source should tune in just to hear them, Arabic is best as they don't filter their hate for all things American. Al Gore is nothing but a phony sellout.
Say what you will about Fox, you can't deny they invite Democrats on their shows to debate. I've never seen MSNBC do that.
Al Jazeera is a news network and not a terrorist cell! Wow, you must watch the network that terrorizes people into believing things your little brain cannot comprehend on its own - FOX.
For those who think Al-Jazeera is just out to hate on Americans: the reason Americans (like myself) read Al-Jazeera is to gain better insight in WORLD news. Being based in the Arab World, it is much more likely to fairly report Arab news.
When Obama won a Nobel Prize for being elected, I realized that whole organization has no dignity. They'll hand out prizes to the Kardashians next.
It would have had way more truthful information on the Benghazi attack then our MSM offered.
I watched Al-Jazeera this morning. Some of the main stories were: typhoon in the Phillipines, civil unrest in the Central African Republic, and Hurricane Sandy. Not one story supporting terrorists. I can't believe people are so dumb.
Al-Jazeera has a great reputation in the rest of the world. Sure, I'll watch.
Apparently some people automatically associate an Arab name with "hates America". Probably the same people that think FOX is real news.
I was with you until you mentioned Fox. Al-Jazeera is a news organization, so the comparison is invalid.
First he invents the Internet, now this. What will jet setter Al do next!
the king of global warming has sold out to the evil oil barons..oh the irony!
Any news source, no matter how biased, broadens your horizon - and even if only to show you that it is biased - if it is.
I used to listen to the Soviet radio news/TASS in the 80s and barely agreed with a single thing - but good to hear what they thought about us from the horse's mouth not hearsay.
Good thing we have geniuses like you here to keep us all informed! Our country started going downhill toward more liberal agendas the second those monsters said education is a requirement. In bible me trust.
Time Warner dropped them like a rock!
Al jazeera may provide the most expansive and unbiased view of world events today. It has come a LONG way from the anti-American drivel of 10-15 years ago. They instituted journalistic standards and hired a lot of respected international journalists.
I'll watch to see how fair and balanced their reporting is before i make my decision. It's always good to get a balanced view of issues from all sides. I hate the cheap talk show type "news" on Fox that polarizes our country. It's not helping us get to solutions.
Excellent news channel. Plenty of international news. Time Americans were exposed to the rest of the world, and we all need a different viewpoint from the bias of Fox.
Nope. They sympathize with the terrorists. Way to go gordo!
Watch Al Jeezera and then post here the most biased and militant story you see. Then, we can discuss this intelligently. You may find it is a good source of news as I did.
The people afraid of Al Jazeera are probably the same people who think Obama is a Muslim terrorist because his middle name is Hussein.
What kind of money grubbing slug is Gore? What a whore.
From the Middle East, must be a terrorist. What a bubble you must live in.
What is an "Al Gore"?
Watch the Arabic version and have someone translate for you and get back to us. Speaking more than English is a highly valuable skill.
I haven't had much of a problem with anything I've read from Al-Jazeera, but I'll probably only watch a little. I try to avoid mainstream news in general. That said, I think it'd be a good perspective to bring to US media.
Al Gore selling his network to a terrorist news network Al Jazeera? I've always thought he was anti American, but never this much. He declined to sell it to Glenn Beck, which is fine, but the fact that he sold it to anti Semites instead is insane. I'm so glad TimeWarner Cable won't air it.
As a feminist I can not support anything run by Muslims until they start treating women as equals.
