Brian Stelter at the New York Times says Al Jazeera has bought Al Gore's struggling TV news channel, Current TV:
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 English-language channel, called Al Jazeera English and based in Doha, Qatar, Al Jazeera will create a new channel, called Al Jazeera America, based in New York.
So you have an Arab news channel buying Al Gore's news channel. I can't wait to see what conservative blogs do with this news; I bet it proves something frightening about the unholy Democrat/Islamofascist axis.
