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?
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.
They bought an American tv channel. ....In America. How are they exporting a whole television studio?
I've never read or watched Al-jazeera before, so watching an American version would be interesting.
I too use foreign media for better info. I also LOVE the 2 am shows on current now. Bill Press Show & the Stephanie Miller show. They are progressive and I hope they are invited to continue especially since they have high ratings
I already use foreign media because it is so much less biased and better coverage. BBC. Never heard of this though
Oh my god, finally. Al Jazeera is the best.
LOL ya right. I totally watch that. ????????????????????????????????
Tapes. Not rapes. Sorry. Well, maybe those too. He did have a harem.
Mouthpiece of radical Muslims. Sorry.
It's a state funded network and Qatar is a big oil producing country. They're widely considered the mouthpiece of radical networks; e.g. All of bin ladens rapes were releases through them. They are to the radical Muslims what msnbc is to the democrat party.
Didn't tune in before, not tuning in after.
Yeah, I'd check it out. Educating yourself on what's happening in the world is alway interesting. Why not?
I have to be honest, I couldn't even interest myself in reading the question beyond just a quick scan. I make time for glee and sometimes jeopardy and wheel during dinner. other than that, j don't have much time for tv anyway.
Ah....it's owned by the Government of Qatar. That's exactly what they push.
Haha!!! "Good evening, I am Al Jazerra with the nightly news"
Instead of "green" propaganda, they'll show Muslim extremist propaganda.....
Pass, I'd rather eat glass.
if it has anything to do with news, no...they're all biased...I do not watch the news because I'm depressed enough., I do not need to be reminded how stupid and violent society is...
I thought you libs believed everything reporters say?
Move to Dearborn. I teach there. When I go to work, I feel like I'm entering a new country where I'm the foreigner. Signs in Arabic, stores are all run by Arabs, everyone's Arabic.
Only because its nasty. Oh...and it carries a deadly virus that will kill all Caucasians.
I said no because I don't own a TV
Minoring in Arabic, can't wait to have easier exposure to the culture! Even if it is in English.
It would have had way more truthful information on the Benghazi attack then our MSM offered.
Maybe we'll finally get coverage about Obamas drone strikes.
Vanguard was around before current tv and they will be around after.
Al Jazeera isn't a pro terrorist network...
OMG!!! That WAS my favorite channel. I'll be tuning out. Guess I'll need to find out where Christoff Putzel and Adam Yamagucci will be airing their documentaries now. How sad. :( very bad news
I voted no, because I don't watch TV.
It's on Wikipedia that the state of Qatar owns Al Jazeera. That is ironic.
Born with a platinum spoon in his mouth to an established US Senator and definitely NOT a loyal husband. Just ask his crazed sex-poodle masseuse.
Loyal husband until he needs a massage, haha.
It's owned by the government of Qatar. They're money comes from oil exports. I thoroughly appreciate the irony.
oil barons? Al Jazera is into oil production?
the king of global warming has sold out to the evil oil barons..oh the irony!
A reporter? Wow.
any thought of American jobs? the whole point is to have a presence in the US.
Actually, their history would suggest otherwise. A reporter from Nightline who worked for Al-Jazeera several years ago said he quit because of their obvious anti-American bias.
Senator. VP. Multi-millionaire. Entrepreneur. Philanthropist. Presidential nominee and winner of the popular vote. Loyal husband and father.
What a loser!
Amazingly, they refused to sell to Beck citing difference in opinion/message. Does the foreign country ensure same message? And is there any thought to the keeping of American jobs here? I feel like it's another democrat/liberal hypocrisy in the making.
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
Really? Like, really? Terrorist? How about you at least google it first. Stop being a closed minded person that thinks any middle eastern name is a terrorist group...
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?
How is it a "terrorist news network"?
There is some wisdom here.
I will likely tune in about as often as I tune into current TV now. Like, never.
I'm sure he'll be crushed.
