LOS ANGELES (AP) — Al-Jazeera, the Pan-Arab news channel that struggled to win space on American cable television, has acquired Current TV, boosting its reach nearly ninefold to about 40 million homes. With a focus on U.S. news, it plans to rebrand the left-leaning news network that cofounder Al Gore couldn’t make relevant.

    What a fitting merger,
    an eco-terrorists supporting terrorists and a terrorists supporting an eco-terrororists.

    What a wonderful conglomerate of pond scum.

    Rebrand it into what? A friendly antiamerican hate newsmedia corporation.
    Sorry, the channel will still be irrelevant, because we already have a CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, and ABC, that are using the same tactics and losing viewership daily.

    Looks like Gore just burned another sucker, when I was hoping he would have to go into insolvency and lose megabucks…….freaking energy sucking prick.

    Expect zero coverage of this. I just heard that Current Tv is partially owned by Dianne Feinsteins’ husband.

    There should be something illegal about selling a domestic media outlet to a group that is aligned against the USA.

    Is it true that the sale went through before the new tax laws went into effect, saving Gore millions in taxes?

    I really don’t like the idea of an extremist propaganda outlet that seeks the destruction of America airing on U.S. cable. Fortunately, sounds like Al Jazeera’s about to get rid of it.

    We’ve been told there will be no change in its political content, just more of the same.

    CA-CHING!
    A Shameless Flabby Oily Piece Of S#!+ Degenerate Prospers.

    This guy needs to not just go away, but go to jail. Meanwhile at stateside, another step is taken toward the making irrelevant of the main stream media. Good riddance assh*les.

    It’s how payoffs are done at that level. Brown bags under tables are for the small (and dumb) players. Big timers sell worthless stock. Al Gore – the jihad jockeys’ obedient lapdog.
