Al Gore Chooses “LIKE MINDED” islamic terrorists To Buy His Cable Company
TWG: Folks, if there was any question as to the allegiance of hypocritical, lying snake oil salesman al gore, let it be put to rest. Glenn Beck wanted to bid on this cable station owned by gore and was refused the opportunity to even place a bid. Gore said he wanted it to go to like-minded people, so he sold it to ISLAMIC JIHADISTS! This is a previous VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, people! Close pal of the clintons and other high profile politicians and a board member of APPLE. (Another reason I refuse to buy Apple products.)
Report: Glenn Beck tried to buy Current TV, Al Gore went with Al-Jazeera
Al-Jazeera wasn’t the only media company with its sights set on former Vice President Al Gore’s little-watched Current TV.
Glenn Beck’s Blaze Media approached the struggling cable news network last year, the Wall Street Journal reports, but was rebuffed because “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
Instead, Gore went with the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.
Al-Jazeera has been criticized for having a pro-Islamist bent, and accused of working with members of Al Qaeda. One of its journalists was arrested in Israel in 2011 on suspicion of being an agent of the Palestinian group Hamas. Dave Marash, a former “Nightline” reporter who worked for Al-Jazeera in Washington, said he left the network in 2008 in part because he sensed an anti-American bias there.
The network is subsidized by the ruling family of oil rich Qatar, which some critics have said smacks of hypocrisy, given Gore’s beliefs that global warming is due in large part to mankind’s reliance on fossil fuels.
Gore won the Oscar in 2006 for his documentary film about global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
Gore netted $100 million with his 20 percent stake in Current TV when it was sold for a reported $500 million on Wednesday.
Al-Jazeera plans to euthanize the seven-year-old network and turn it into Al-Jazeera America by adding five to 10 new U.S. bureaus beyond the five it has now. More than half of its content will be U.S. news, and the network will have its headquarters in New York, according to a rep.
Emails to Glenn Beck’s rep were not immediately returned.
Joel Z. Hyatt (born Joel Hyatt Zylberberg, 1950) is a prominent businessman and former attorney and American politician of the Democratic party. He is the founder of Hyatt Legal Services, and was featured in the law firm’s television commercials speaking the slogan, “I’m Joel Hyatt and you have my word on it.”
Hyatt co-founded Hyatt Legal Services in 1977 as a low-cost legal service and later founded Hyatt Legal Plans, which became the country’s largest provider of employer-sponsored group legal services. Hyatt Legal Plans was acquired by MetLife in 1997.
Hyatt was a founding member of the U.S. Senate Democratic Leadership Circle and was a member of that group from 1981 to 1986. He was the Democratic National Committee’s assistant treasurer from 1981 to 1983.
He is the son-in-law of former U.S. Sen. Howard Metzenbaum and in 1994, when Metzenbaum decided to retire from the Senate, Hyatt ran to replace him. Hyatt won the Democratic nomination, but lost to then Ohio Lt. Gov. R. Michael DeWine in the general election.
Hyatt served as National Finance Chair for the Democratic party in 2000, and is a business partner of former U.S. Vice President Al Gore In 2004, Hyatt and Gore purchased Newsworld International, a cable news channel, programmed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which aired news programming from around the world. On August 1, 2005, Gore and Hyatt relaunched the network as Current TV, a young adult-programmed news and information service which pioneered the concept of user generated content on cable TV.
Hyatt taught entrepreneurship at Stanford University Graduate School of Business from 1998 to 2003. He is a member of the board of trustees of Morehouse College and of The Brookings Institution. Hyatt was elected to the board of directors of Hewlett-Packard Company in May 2007.
In 1990, Hyatt Legal Services paid a $157,000 judgment for illegally firing an attorney in their Philadelphia offices, Clarence B. Cain, because of his AIDS diagnosis. This case became the basis for the 1993 Tom Hanks film Philadelphia.
