Al Gore TV Becomes Al Jazeera TV

So smoothly does the transition of a liberal propaganda cable news network that no one watched proceed to an Islamist propaganda cable news network that no one watches.

Al Jazeera is a propaganda network for the Qatari tyranny which has a hand in backing every Islamist terrorist group from Hamas to Al Qaeda.

Qatar has enough money to burn that it’s decided that it wants a finer control over the liberal message with its own ‘left of left’ news network. Considering that Current TV was meant to appeal to lefties in that sweet spot between MSNBC (too right wing) and RT (too crazy), this is a tricky balancing act.

Al Jazeera is finalizing a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago.

If the deal is completed, Current will provide the pan-Arab news giant with something it has sought for years: a pathway into American living rooms. Current is available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service.

Rather than simply use Current to distribute its existing English-language channel, called Al Jazeera English and based in Doha, Qatar, Al Jazeera will create a new channel based in New York, according to people with knowledge of the deal negotiations. Potentially called Al Jazeera America, roughly 60 percent of the programming will be produced in the United States while the remaining 40 percent will come from Al Jazeera English.

Al Jazeera may absorb some Current TV staff members, according to the people, who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. But Current’s schedule of shows will most likely be dissolved in the spring.

The plan will bring Al Jazeera, which is financed by the government of Qatar, into closer competition with CNN and other news channels in the United States.

I don’t see this as competition so much as Al Jazeera creating its own RT and PressTV, except with a bigger presence on American airwaves. But Current TV had a limited presence to begin with. And there’s no serious reason to think that Al Jazeera America will do much better than the BBC, from which it was originally born.

Like RT and PressTV and Xinhau, Al Jazeera is regime propaganda. The difference is that American leftist media has decided to ignore the fact that Al Jazeera is just another network owned by a totalitarian regime looking to spread its propaganda. Maybe now they’ll be forced to stop ignoring it.

    Watch, Al Jazzera will invite nodding and sympathetic democrats, not to mention their honey Keith Ellison, and the MSM will fall all over themselves to follow suit. Oh, and don't you dare insult Muhammad, or attempt to question any Qur'an verses, or Hadiths, or Surrahs on their program. /S

      I'm seriously worried this is one of the most harmful developments to come along for a long time.

      • JacksonPearson

        With hundreds of local, cable and satellite TV stations, I can't see where there'd be a demand here in the United States for Arab propaganda news.

          morons are easily bored. easily bored people are easily swayed.

          • Deep Space

            Morons aren't going to vote in big numbers and if they are so easily swayed let's sway them back. Shouldn't be too hard. Anyway, morons will be watching Honey Boo Boo unless there's a leftist equivalent I wouldn't worry too much.

            It will be Hani al Bhu Bhu.

    • jakespoon

      Do you reckon they'll have those crappy jihad cartoons that they play in Gaza?

      • JacksonPearson

        Sure, if they thought they could pollute innocent minds.

        • jakespoon

          Maybe they will Americanize them for our market, like – "The Martyr Mouse Club- Whose the leader of the club that's made for you and me, o,- M-A-R-T-Y-R M-O-U-S-E." Disney wouldn't dare sue.

            Once they get one foot in the door, I wouldn't put anything past them, and I mean anything!

    How appropriate.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    A religious totalitarian regime (in other words, Islamic) owning a leftist cable news channel in the USA? No problem. We've got guns to control. We have our priorities you know.

    Don't count any chickens yet.

      I'd heard of Tokyo Rose, but not Lord Haw-Haw. I had to google it! Guess Canajun edumacation isn't all it's cracked up to be.

      excellent point!

    How will we tell the difference?

      Well, you could convert and get your job back. You're already good at spreading B.S.,and people can't stand you . A perfect fit.

    "an Islamist propaganda cable news network that no one watches."

    From your key.board to God's ears, I hope.

    • Deep Space

      Will they broadcast sports?

      • kafir4life

        as honor killings are considered sport among the mohamadites, maybe……

        • Parenthetical Phrase

          Interesting…reminds me of that Muslim woman in Buffalo who wanted to start a TV station that would broadcast positive images and content about Islam. She and her husband succeeded with the station. Only one thing: She was beheaded by her husband when she filed for divorce — AT THE TV STATION! Well, in a big way she got her wish: the true message of Islam was broadcast via the TV station that she was instrumental in starting.

          If we could channel her disembodied soul, what do you think she'd have to say?

  • Cat K

    Yes, Deep-beheadings, especially of women

    • kafir4life

      To a muslim, that's like a Catholic praying the Rosary, or a Jew lighting candles on the Sabbeth……It's their religious freedom. Notice we no longer hear anything of the muslim woman killed in her home in california, and her daughter pretended (badly) that it was a hate crime? Now that we know the truth, it's like the candle lighting or the Rosary praying…..It's just a religious obligation and therefore no longer news.
      allahu snackbar!

    Who would have thought that Al Jazeera could gain such a foothold in the American media. Glenn Beck's offer to buy Current TV was rejected and Islamofacism won. If this doesn't show us the colors of the Left, I don't know what does.

  • Laura

    Al Gore a greedy traitor for selling out America to muslim interests and admitting he has more in common ideologically to this jihadist network then to patriotic Americans like Glenn Beck, who he refused to sell the station to on the grounds that Beck doesn’t share Current’s ideology. But obviously al jazeera does. What does that tell us about Gore and his partners? Al gore, a liar who made millions on the global warming hoax. A hypocrite for making sure the sale occurred by Dec. 31 so that he would not be subjected to the capital gains tax increase even as he has advocated the wealthy pay their “fair share”. And finally an antisemite for helping promote a steady stream of vicious anti-Israel lies and propaganda to American viewers that will assuredly be featured on the al jazeera owned Current TV.
