    Al-Jazeera, the Pan-Arab news channel that struggled to win space on American cable television, has acquired Current TV, boosting its reach nearly ninefold to about 40 million homes. With a focus on U.S. news, it plans to rebrand the left-leaning news network that cofounder Al Gore couldn't make relevant.

    The former vice president confirmed the sale Wednesday, saying in a statement that Al-Jazeera shares Current TV's mission "to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling."

    The acquisition lifts Al-Jazeera's reach beyond a few large U.S. metropolitan areas including New York and Washington, where about 4.7 million homes can now watch Al-Jazeera English

    Algore is to get 100 million on the deal. Will the Left condem this greed???

    He took his money before the incrase in the tax rates for high income earners. I thought it was the feeling of Dims that payimg your full share is the patriotic thing to do.

    TIME Warner is said to have told the new owners they will not be carrying the station after the format change.

    About fell of my stool.

    He would not sell to Glen Beck because of differing beliefs, but Al Jazeera is fine. What a country we've become.

    I watched the most outrageous anti-gun propaganda bullshit on that network called " Arming the Mexican Cartels". Full of lies and exagerations, not to mention poorly done.

    For the most part 548's statements fall on barren ground.

    I think what 548 is trying to tell you, Algore is extemely boring, not worth the wideband wasted on this loser.

    A weasely hypocrite, accepting money made from oil, drilled from the ground, and causing all that global warming, killing baby polar bears, melting ice caps.

    Algore is the type of disgusting excuse of someone 548 would like to arrest for impersonating a human being. Hell, Algore makes you want to appreciate used car salesmen.

    He WAS a used car salesman! He sold them while working his way through college. His dad insisted Al learn a trade since he wasn,t sure he was suited for politics.

    Isn't it revealing that they refuse more money from Glenn Beck so that they could keep their "integrity" by selling to Al Jazerra. It illustrates just who the left sees as the enemy here. They do truly hate conservatives, and don't simply want them (us) to fail.
