Yeesh ~ Does This Mean They Asked Al Gore His Ownself

how popular he and his vanity network was?

Al Jazeera’s New Channel Struggles for US Distribution

Al Jazeera’s announced plans to establish a new U.S. cable news channel via the purchase of Current TV isn’t even 48 hours old and already it finds itself in a vicious battle to retain distribution rights.

Al Jazeera’s acquisition of Current TV is basically a pay-for-distribution play. The Qatar-backed network plans to replace Current TV in the more than 40 million homes where it is currently distributed with its own news network, tentatively dubbed Al Jazeera America. The new network’s success is predicated on maintaining, if not increasing, that level of distribution.

One person with knowledge of cable TV deals said pay-TV operators will definitely seek more favorable terms from Al Jazeera since,

no one wanted to carry Current TV and they want to carry an Al Jazeera channel even less.

Al Gore NOT POPULAR, say WHAT?!?!?!

    I can see their new marketing ploy now. Kieth Olbermann in a Kufi Crown and Kashibo kurti. I’d tune it to see that, if only to laugh at him again.

    “Al Jazeera not popular; say what!?!?!?”

    Ummm, I think you get my drift.

    @Syd B. ACK. My eyes! NO thank you.

    Only if Olbertard is buried up to his neck in sand and pelted with footballs.

    @ Gunslinger
    Can’t we use rocks? Stoning is, after all, a ‘punishment’ used by those he approves of.

  5. Gunslinger says:

    Footballs will take longer and produce funnier headshots.

    It’s also more in line with the fine American tradition of slapstick comedy rather than borrowing from a primitive system of dictatorial rule trying to masquerade as a religion.

    Gore was to warming as Obama is to success.

    I used to think Al Gore had some integrity.But,it turns out he’s just another fake American.
    How much money do you need?
    Really,10 million will last you and your kids their lives if handled properly.
    This sick bastards need hundreds of millions to keep their egos from collapsing by
    actually being alone?alone?
    Oh my God,alone with my soul.

    They have souls?

  9. Yojimbo says:

    You’re giving sick bastards a bad name.

    Al Gore never had an ounce of integrity – anyone remember no controlling legal authority? – and that he’s sold his failing vanity project to the apologists for Muhammedan totalitarianism is only surprising to those who’ve not paid one bit of attention to the man throughout his career.

  11. Mark says:

    Maybe, just maybe, the world can FINALLY stop paying attention to this bloated turd.

    I watch Al Jazeera here in Zurich. I think they have some good programming and I find it interesting to look at issues from other than an American perspective, but far be it from me to fly in the face of popular opinion!

  13. tree hugging sister says:

    I’m pretty sure the real problem ISN’T Al Jazeera, Ave…

  14. aelfheld says:

    Ave, I’m sure the same could have been said about television programming in the USSR.
