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?

Apparently some people automatically associate an Arab name with "hates America". Probably the same people that think FOX is real news.

Do you know about the link between Hamas and Al-Jazeera or not?

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.

I haven't heard any Democrats upset over Al Gore selling his failing company to Hamas, uh, I mean Al-Jazeera, right before the tax hike. I guess nobody cares he didn't pay his fair share huh?

And you do know that Al-Jazeera has been linked to Hamas, right? No... I'm sure the Islamists just love the infidels.

I wasn't referring to just you, cowboy. Someone else used the verbal equivalent of the phrase you used - before you did. I just get sick of ALL the name calling here, regardless of who's doing it. There's no discussion, no exchange of ideas, no learning when that's so prevalent. In my opinion.

No shock the democrats would support the "Hate America" network.

Oddly, they don't see their treatment of women as oppression; more like protecting them. Of course they think WE exploit women as sex objects.

There are actually many more women converting TO Islam than leaving Allah knows why.

I like that Al pushed the deal through before the big capital gains tax hikes.

A conservative by definition has something to conserve. We'll bring him around yet.

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

@gradsmart, I know exactly what you're saying! My comment, though, was meant in the way someone from the Right identifies (shares ideology?) with FOX News. Same with the Left and shared -ideology- with MSNBC. FOX, MSNBC are not nation states or terror cells, and I agree that neither is Al Jazeera.

They are much like existing network media. They report what they want public to believe.

We gave them an interview last year, and they chopped most of the content. 3 hours of filming, 3 minutes of air time. Edits are understandable, but 2 minutes of the 3 was their spin.

Gonzoboy - Al Jazeera is not a nation state or a terrorist cell. It is a news network and therefore does not have an ideology. And, big news channels around the world are more neutral than in the US where FOX brainwashes and CNN focuses too much on the local.

Because it will be a whole new network, they just needed a channel number.

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.

praet I still do essentially the same thing, although in my case, instead of TASS it's Rush, Beck, and Fox&Friends. Rarely agree with it, never believe a word of it, but suffer through it for perspective.

That probably says more about Glenn Beck. The world thanks Crazy Al - we dodged a bullet there.

@RonPaulGal, Al Gore probably has more in common ideologically with Al Jazeera, than he'll ever have with Glen Beck...

@ Anarchy - since there's no sound with SOH, you can only assess the content of what I say. So you dismiss what disagreeing people say with name calling, like whiny. Another Saul Alinsky tactic, if you know who he was.

More extreme than the bbc or NPR? Those are two of most gentle, level-minded stations I've ever listened to. How are those extreme?
