After Al-Jazeera announced plans to purchase Al Gore’s failed television network Current TV for $500 million, talk radio personalities exploded into predictable rage. Much noise was made about the fact that he rushed the deal in advance of the fiscal cliff tax hike, given his love for increased taxes on wealthy Americans.
While it’s true that this was a hypocritical move on Al Gore’s part, the real story is being missed. Al-Jazeera is an amazing news brand known for cutting-edge journalism. When the channel expands to the US, it will significantly increase the quality of available news coverage for Americans. In fact, there’s a distinct possibility that Al-Jazeera will become another friend to the freedom movement, much like RT America.
