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?
Thanks bakes. We're not alone, lots of people tune in, there's just not as many smart people on this app.
Al Gore - born loser (cue The Price is Right loser tune - wah wuh wuh waaaaaah (waaaaaaaaaaah))
Whoops, missed his 15% capital gains tax rate by 2 days. Thanks to comrade Obama he'll be paying 20%. Good effort though.
I don't watch current tv now
A-men. You said it better I
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.
There's few things I like more than American mainstream media...said nobody in the last 20 years. I don't watch much news but when I do, I like as many different angles on a topic as I can get.
That's ok, i like getting lots of perspectives even if I don't agree with them (which is why I torture myself into watching fox :-P) I just hope they don't focus on American politics all the time like current has, it has gone downhill quite a bit since a few years ago.
Al Jazeera will have more integrity than the BS that current has on now. Al jazeera not unbiased don't get me wrong the are "progressive". But they also do some pretty good reporting and offer a good international perspective. Some of the op-Eds they let run I don't like but others are great so
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.
The actual truth will never be on TV
CNN is my primary news source I usually browse others to gain their perspective on various topics
Great go Al, selling your station to terrorists.
Voted no because I never have, but after reading some if these comments I might have to check it out.
Oh that is great irony!
I don't know if I will avidly watch the channel but I will browse it once in a while. Current tv had the show Bar Karma which I really enjoyed voting in possible story endings while watching.
Early bird gets the worm, but its the second mouse to the trap that gets the cheese.
Al-Jazeera has a great reputation in the rest of the world. Sure, I'll watch.
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.
YepNope Al Jazeera isn't a person.
Word up brother.
We get enough of that from CNN, NBC, abc, ap, CBS, ........
He??? Who are you referring to.
Don't think I want to watch pro PLO or anti Israel crap.
Definitely! I've been wanting Al Jazeera for years.
From the Middle East, must be a terrorist. What a bubble you must live in.
He has a terrorist sounding unamerican name, therefore he is obviously our enemy, duh.
Time Warner dropped them like a rock!
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?
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.
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???
What kind of money grubbing slug is Gore? What a whore.
I'll tune in if they keep the young Turks.
Never tuned in before, and don't plan on tuning in now
It's comical that the terrorist supporting Al Jazeera would but Current TV. liberals and jihadists have the same goal, just different means- brining down the USA.
They often use the same talking points.
Liberals and radical Muslims share the view that the US is a problem, a net negative for the world, and that American power and influence should be diminished. They both blame the US for a lot of the worlds problems. Just listen to jimmy carter or Michael Moore for a while and you'll see it.
Glad to see someone with their head on straight! News sources are a strange thing to compliment someone on but, I'm doing it anyway ha. Good job.
Radical Muslims are actually extremely conservative, person above me. Nice try, though.
I like a few of their shows. Vanguard in particular has the best investigative reporting on tv. In general they have too many commercials so I haven't watched in awhile. I have nothing against Al Jazeera, I sometimes read their website especially for OWS info. That, Russia Today and Democracy Now!
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.
There's some overlap in the world view of liberals and radical Muslims.
Why do you assume they're a terrorist network?
No but I don't watch current anyway
Algore and Al Jazeera are two peas in a pod. Not surprising. Remember, bin laden officially endorsed Obama in 2008 in one of his videos. I was as surprised as bin laden must have been to see that Obama not only continued the two wars but escalated the war in Afghanistan (surge).
You temporarily represented the nation Sir / Ma'am.
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.
Nope. Terrorist network. I don't support terrorism.
Nope. They sympathize with the terrorists. Way to go gordo!
So who profits off this channel?
Has Gore lost his mind?
