Comments: An Inconvenient Deal

Al Jazeera English is one of the best journalistic outfits in English. Any concrete reasons as to why it's inferior to MSNBC or Fox News?

I see what you're saying after reading this again. I just assumed you were bashing Al Jazeera. Maybe you were, but not in the way I inferred.

Not sure what's going on over there. I never watched much current but liked it in theory, and some of my favorite journalists like Matt Taibbi were frequent guests on those shows.

Say what you want about Current TV, Infomania (with Connor Knighton) and the original 30 minute Rotten Tomatoes Show were two of the best tv shows in recent memory.

Funny how Gore chose to sell Current to Al Jazeera rather than to the Glenn Beck Network citing that the former’s message was more in line with his network.

And dope Joy Behar, one of Current's stellar line up, says she’ll be learning Farsi? Iran, Iraq, Qatar – all the same, right?

Oh, and the hypocrisy of 'Mr. Carbon Footprint' selling to his company to concerns in a country that is one of the biggest producers of oil?

Have I mentioned that liberalism is a mental disorder??!
