Posted on 01/06/2013 10:03:04 AM PST by John Semmens
Former Vice-President Al Gore sold his Current TV network to Al Jazeera for a reported $100 million after rebuffing a bid from Glen Beck.
Money, as it turns out, was not the deciding factor. We chose to go with Al Jazeera because of a compatibility of values and objectives, Gore said. We feared that Beck, as a purveyor of extremism, would have taken things in the wrong direction. It was clear to us that Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current TV. Our decision was basically a no brainer.
That Al Jazeera has been a frequent advocate of what might be termed anti-American propaganda was no cause for pause in the negotiations. There are a lot of legitimate criticisms that people can level at America, Gore maintained. Americas materialistic society is despoiling the natural resources that belong to all. Americas militarism is instigating wars around the globe. The voices of Americas victims, especially those in the Muslim world, deserve to be heard. If Current TV provides another outlet for these voices so much the better.
Financial experts are convinced that Gore got the best of his Arabian bidders. Given Current TVs daily viewership, Al Jazeeras $100 million investment amounts to around $500,000 per watcher. On top of this, Gore pressure to conclude the deal prior to January 1, 2013 enabled him to avoid President Obamas tax increase.

gore is a traitor to the US for dealing with the enemy while we are still at war.
OK someone help me out with this please.
This time, I am missing the satire. What in the article is not true?
No surprise here. It shows how the RATS will sell out their country for a buck. Pure and simple Gore is a traitor!
As is every single one of Al Gore's decisions. This is what happened in a nut shell - A company that has been promoting economic terrorism against Americans and most humans on the planet, has just sold a network to another company that has been promoting religious terrorism against Americans and most humans on the planet. As Al Gore himself stated, it was a no brainer.
Yes, hard to tell its a satire. Algore was, is, and always will be a blowhard con man with no morals or core beliefs. He is a fat douchebag who was always in it for himself. He’s made hundreds of millions off of his global warming scam, and he disgusts me.
So millions of oil dollars go to a man who won a Nobel Prize for environmentalism and an Academy Award for An Inconvenient Truth?
I thought pigs where taboo according to islam
