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

    Al Gore sued over Current TV sale to Al Jazeera
    March 6, 2013, 9:00 PM EST
    By Eriq Gardner , The Hollywood Reporter

    The Hollywood Reporter --
    Current TV's $500 million sale to Al Jazeera has prompted a lawsuit that claims co-founder Al Gore originally was opposed to the deal but had a "change of heart" on selling his cable network to oil-rich Qataris.
    The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court by John Terenzio, who presents himself as a highly regarded media consultant, executive and TV producer who conceived the idea for the distribution of an American version of Al Jazeera. Now, Terenzio claims that he has been cut out of the lucrative deal

    Gore has always been very generous with other people's money.

    seems he was clever enough to turn a failing backwater tv channel into a half billion dollar golden goose

    because its al gore, otherwise this would receive no play

    and the fellow who missed out on realizing anything on the deal has filed a nuisance suit in a last effort to cash out

    hope al tells him to pound sand

    Gonna agree. It sounds like this is sour grapes from some dude who thought he was going to see a piece of this pie, and is throwing a litigious hissy-fit when he didn't get a kickback.

    Nothing to see here, folks.

    But nobody watched or watches current tv.

    I used to watch it for laughs. Like the time they showed the 2 hours long socialistic drivel of the Emeritus professor Richard Wolf.

    His solution to our current economic crisis. Tax rich folks at 90 + %....

    Lol. He mentioned we "did it after WW2.

    WOW...Emeritus Harvard Proffesor and all.

    One things clear, Gores primary ambition has always been the great american dollar.

    A expected generic thoughtless response but hey, your a BO supporter, or a Lib.

    Its one thing to be honest, and have to cow tow to no one because youv'e never misrepresented yourself.

    It's another thing to to push a false bankrupt narrative like "global warming" with the sincere underlying objective being making a buck.

    I don't like scamming politicians. Gore just epitomizes the left wing agenda. None of the lefts aganeda could exist on its own merits and has to be gift wrapped in BS to seem palatable.

    so, al gore acts like a capitalist and sells a third rate tv channel for a half billion dollars and you complain that he is acting politically. as is not unusual, your argument makes no sense
