    Okay whatever.


    2) sounds like editorial content, which I have already commented on
    Well, if that's the editorial content they run, I have no interest in watching them.

    Meh, whatever. I've seen Current TV before. Nobody with a triple digit IQ would give it any credence. If Habib wants his terrorist TV, that's fine with me. On Dish Network it's mixed in so high in the channels that I'd wager very few people even know of its existence.

    They're painful to watch. They make MSNBC look like Fox. I think being a commentator on that network should be a prerequisite for a bullet between the eyes.

    I hope they keep The Young Turks and the Viewpoint on the air. They're excellent shows.

    I like the turks... I think Spitzer however should get out of being a tv personality and into the consumer protection agency. I think he's at his best when he's taking on white-collar crime. The guy had wall street shaking in it's boots back in the day.

    People seem o be confused Al Jaezeera English is entirely separate form Al Jazeera Arabic. Al Jeezera English has mainly BBC and CNN reporters working for it you can tell by the way everyone seem to have a British accent. The former editor in chief for the CBC in Canada ran AJE from 2007-2010.

    In this transaction apparently we were saved from a GREAT potential terror...


    Glenn Beck tried to buy Current TV but was 'rejected'

    Who knew Current TV had so many suitors? Before Al-Jazeera snapped up Al Gore's little-watched cable network, Glenn Beck tried to buy it, but, as Beck himself tweeted, "we were rejected by progressive owners." The conservative media personality's TheBlaze approached Current last year but was told that "the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view," according to a source familiar with the negotiations. Current's new pan-Arab owner may not align with everyone's point of view, either: Time Warner Cable yanked Current from its lineup within hours of the sale, right in the middle of Eliot Spitzer's nightly show.


    Oh thank GOD!

    in afghanistan we had both al jazeera english and arabic,and both were the most unbiased,truthful i had ever seen in mainstreammedia.

    ithink aj is under attack because they tend to filter nothing,from beheadings,to govt corruption,to internation conflicts no other msm will cover but insteadshow a story about a mass shooting ora pregnant women goingmissing or other forms of sensationalism over journalism.


    to topit off,al jazeera in arabic with subtitles covered more european news and american news than european and american msm.most stories of importance willnever see msm.

    i agree. they show the stuff we don't want shown, but otherwise they are pretty straight shooters from what i have seen of them.
