It’s rather strange that a former U.S. vice-president would be selling his TV network to an Islamic entity that has shown to be sympathetic to the sworn enemies of America. Strange, but maybe there is more than meets the eye here.

Do not hide from us, NCMAN64, who are those sworn enemies of America to whom Al Jazeera has manifested its sympathies. I don’t think Al Jazeera has ever done a thing to harm US interests — unless, of course, you think showing inconvenient truths harms US interests.

So, Al Gore, the self-anointed savior of mankind, has sold out to the godless savages. It’s all about the money, isn’t it, Al?

This is good news! I love Al Jazeera, and have had to make do with just watching the station’s online stream. I hope no other cable company feels inclined to emulate Time Warner in dropping current tv because of this sale!

I wish Eliot Spitzer had bought the station and turned it into a true liberal progressive network.

I wish Eliot Spitzer bought the station and turned it into a true liberal progressive network. It had lots of potential.
