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?
MSNBC isn't news. It's a bunch of like-minded hens gossiping about politics and tabloids.
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.
but Islamist jihadis are
Waaaaaay before I'd watch Faux News or MSNBC.
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.
Wait so Big - Al just sent jobs over seas? Yikes.
You'd think he would sell to Americans to keep the jobs here.
Dart droid shut the hell up. Not all Arabs are terrorists!
I'm a democrat who's been listening to current and this disturbs and scares me a bit.
Yes. I'm doing a model UN and I'm Pakistan, this could give me a great point I view.
This is an amazing act of money over morals.
you would like to hear news from people that flew planes into 2 towers with three thousand people still in them?
That isn't the reason I think obama's a Muslim terrorist. Just a quirky coincidence;-)
Guess that might depend if you're in the drone's crosshairs. Ask someone from Yemen or Afghanistan.
Not no but hell NO!
Al Gore is an idiot.
Possible, we certainly don't get the Islamic point a view on any current events from either Fox News or CNN.
The people afraid of Al Jazeera are probably the same people who think Obama is a Muslim terrorist because his middle name is Hussein.
Ha. Poor Qatar, wasting away into abject poverty. It has nothing anybody anywhere could possibly want.
It's really very in-depth journalism.
I like AlJazeera and listen to the podcasts daily.
"Everyone *else was blowing smoke up our assses".
During the little Bush administration, AlJazeera was the only place one could see what was really going on in Iraq.
Everyone was blowing smoke up our assses.
I can't wait to see how fair and balanced a bunch of terrorist women-haters are! We can tune in together!!!
No. No. No. No. No.
The only credible news source in the US is Democracy Now!
Many of the news stations are propaganda machines for our political parties.
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.
NPR is great, much better balanced than those stations that polarize and whip everyone into a fury. They try to tell you what to think.
Al-Jazeera is already on FIOS TV. But not in HD. I watched it a few times and never wanted to watch it again. It actually sucks. But then again, the countries that watch it really have nothing else going for them but goats and rocks.... and sheet covered woman subjugated by men.
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
Tv? Who watches that?
This will be interesting. However, I don't watch that kind of tv.
I would just to see what they actually do with it XD
I believe that they lean a little toward evil. They are a propaganda machine for Islam. I would bet that all cable companies will begin to drop them one after another, unless obama decides to subsidize them like the pitiful npr.
I was thinking about Satan in hell with Sadam Hussein in South Park episodes, when I read this question. Perhaps that's a bit of a stretch, but that's my initial impression.
Sorry, I accidentally hit submit!
The first tthat came to my mind, were various episodes of South Park.
Irony or hypocrisy? The green energy ripoff artist Al Gore makes $100 million by selling off to a company owned by a major oil exporter. On the plus side Gore can now afford another private jet. Hypocrite POS.
Shows you what kind of a person Al Gore is. There isn't any amount of money that makes doing that deal alright.
Ironic but not surprising. Al Gore sheds his morals when he smells cash.
After Cathy Griffin's performance on CNN, it's extremely hard to be worse than them. That woman needs a tranquilizing dart in her a$$
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.
I said yes, but only to see what they say...
Nope. I don't give a damn what they have to say.
They better not even think about getting mineg!
I almost replied with something witty....
But I just realized, you think you're someone that I value their opinion.
Alas, you're not.
I wonder if Keith Oberman will have to learn to speak Arabic to keep his job?
I will watch it just as frequently as I do now... AKA never.
