    I just read on DCRTV.com that Al Gore is selling his Current TV network to Al Jazeera. It will be called Al Jazeera America. More information from the NY Times here.

    Time Warner is going to be dropping the channel ASAP. Has Dish made any announcements? I hope they keep it.

    I heard about this on the morning news and it sounds like Al Gore made out like a bandit unloading a channel no one watches because it's boring to a network that no one will watch because they believe it's terrorist propaganda. I predict that whether DISH drops it or not it will bomb (no pun intended) and quickly disappear. This would be like promoting a German language/culture radio station during the WWI/WWII era. I'm not saying the stereotypes are correct, but the fact is they exist. I'm sure the talking heads on Fox News are already foaming at the mouth over it.
