Bill O'Reilly slammed Gore for selling his failed Marxist cable channel, Current, and profiting off the sale by making it happen before January 1, 2013, when new capital gains tax rates happen (Newsbusters).
Added to the mix is that Algore sold Current to the jihadi network al-Jazeera, essentially for oil money.
Speaking of political views, another Associated Press reporter, Lisa M. Ruth, stated that “Al Jazeera is the state-funded Arab news network” and is “an arm of the biggest of big oil, and famously provided the platform for Al Qaeda to broadcast its explanations for its 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.”
So on top of trying to sell his network before the Obama tax increases kicked in, the “environmentally friendly” Gore did business with an organization that is not only an enemy of America, but is supported by the sale of oil around the world, which the former vice president has vehemently criticized.
Ruth also noted:
Al Jazeera leaders intend to rebrand the network, with a tentative name of “Al Jazeera America.” Sixty percent of its programming will be produced by Al Jazeera in the United States, while 40 percent will come from its global English-language unit, Al Jazeera English.
In his statement about the sale, Gore emphasized the shared philosophy(???) of Al Jazeera and Current TV, which is "to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling."
Rebrand the network? Maybe they can call it Al?
