Current TV Staffers Rip Assploding Hypocrite Al Gore: “We All Know Now That He’s Nothing But A Bullshitter”

Current TV Staffers Rip Assploding Hypocrite Al Gore: “We All Know Now That He’s Nothing But A Bullshitter” – Weasel Zippers

I’m surprised it took them this long to figure the Goracle out.

Via NY Post:

Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.

“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility. [...]

“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising – and Al Gore, that bullshitter sells to the emir?”

The displeasure with Gore among the staff was thick enough to cut with a scimitar.

“We all know now that Al Gore is nothing but a bullshitter,” said the staffer bluntly.

We do stories on the tax code, and he sells the network before the tax code kicked in?

“Al was always lecturing us about green. He kept his word about green all right – as in cold, hard cash!”

Al Gore sells Current TV to al-Jazeera UPDATED! Al Gore does not pay his fair share!

I think they paid five dollars for it, but the price isn’t the issue, the ideology is. We all know al-Jazeera is heavily biased, and apparently, Al Gore found their ideology similar to his

Before pan-Arab broadcaster al-Jazeera bought Current TV, the fledgling cable news network founded by former Vice President Al Gore, conservative commentator Glenn Beck had pursued purchasing the company — and was rejected.

The Wall Street Journal revealed that when Beck’s TheBlaze TV sought ownership of the Current broadcasting network, the bid was rejected because the principles of Beck’s company did not align with those of Current.

“Other suitors who didn’t share Current’s ideology were rebuffed,” reporters Keach Hagey and John Jannarone wrote in the Wall Street Journal. “Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that ‘the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,’” according to a person familiar with the negotiations.” 

The former vice president confirmed the sale Wednesday that reportedly netted $500 million, saying in a statement that Al-Jazeera shares Current TV’s mission “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.”

In other words, Gore is a Leftist, and that makes him far closer to a “news” outfit that carries water for terrorists than to American Conservatives. The mask slips a little more, revealing what the American Left really is.

UPDATE!! I guess Joe Biden might call Al Gore unpatriotic!

Liberal hypocrisy, thy name is Al:

Al Jazeera did not disclose the purchase price, but people with direct knowledge of the deal pegged it at around $500 million, indicating a $100 million payout for Mr. Gore, who owned 20 percent of Current. Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1 . . .

Waiting for Team Obama to label Gore as greedy, and waiting, and waiting, and…….

 

Time Warner Cable Drops Al Gore’s Current TV Due To Purchase By Al Jazeera

Time Warner Cable Drops Al Gore’s Current TV Due To Purchase By Al Jazeera – Newsbusters

As NewsBusters reported Wednesday, Al Jazeera entered into an agreement to buy Al Gore’s failing network Current TV.

Hours later, as a result of the purchase, Time Warner Cable dropped the station with a message reading to viewers “This channel is no longer available on Time Warner Cable.”

According to multiple news sources, Current co-founder Joel Hyatt said in a statement that TWC dropped his TV network because TWC “did not consent to the sale to Al Jazeera.”

“Current will no longer be carried on TWC,” wrote Hyatt. “This is unfortunate, but I am confident that Al Jazeera America will earn significant additional carriage in the months and years ahead.”

The Huffington Post reported late Wednesday, “A Time Warner Cable spokesman said in a statement that ‘our agreement with Current will be terminated and we will no longer be carrying the channel.’”

Given TWC’s 12.5 million subscribers, it will be interesting to see how and if this impacts Al Jazeera’s decision to purchase Current.

Stay tuned.

Gore: MSNBS is not kooky enough for me!

Well, he actually said “Progressive” not Kooky, but really, don’t they mean the same thing?

Via Mediaite:

Former Vice President Al Gore on Friday described Current TV as the “consistent” liberal TV network compared with MSNBC, and said it will keep Keith Olbermann in the fold.

“He’s fine,” said Gore, chairman of the network in 63 million U.S. homes, dismissing rumors that Olbermann was seeking to leave. “He has been the key to our ability to pivot and develop our whole network as a progressive news and commentary network.” [...]

“They’ve got a few progressive shows on MSNBC in prime time,” Gore said, “but they’ll start the day with a conservative show in the mornings, and then they’ll get the prison channel on the weekends. They’ll be all over the lot in the middle of the day. We’re consistent.”

A “few” Progressive shows? How about nothing BUT Progressive shows Al? And another thing, Morning Joe is about as Conservative as The Today Show. What Gore really wants is Communist TV, and yep Al, MSNBS is close to that
