    Simply put - Does the owner of a business have the right to sell his business, even if a bunch of people have a political bone to pick with him?
    When it comes down to it, yes. This sale might end up upsetting me because it's possible it could end up canceling my favorite show, The Young Turks. But when push comes to shove, the owner of a business does have the right to sell it. It's possible your favorite NFL football team or NHL hockey team could be sold to a bumbling fool who makes poor decisions that cause the team to lose. That would be a bummer, but the owner does have the right to sell.

    My favorite NFL team is owned by a bumbling fool who makes poor decisions that cause the team to lose.

    This year, the Houston Texans were in the playoffs. Last time the Bills were in the playoffs, there were no Houston Texans.

    The Hollywood Reporter --

    Al Gore Sued Over Current TV Sale to Al Jazeera (Exclusive)

    Internet Al is in deep doo-doo but his heart is as always with the poor folks!!!
    Won't make a bit of difference. ANYONE can sue anyone over anything in the US. There's no restrictions of sales with the FCC.
    Alex Carey:

    ... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.

    Oh, a Bills fan. Life is tough. My condolences. If it's any help, my team has never won the Super Bowl. Some people are so negative that they say my Nebraska Cornhuskers will never win it, but I keep hoping.
