    Beck claims he wasn’t even allowed to sit down at the negotiating table. He claims he offered more than 500m, and that AG’s mouthpieces wouldn’t even give him the time of day

    You have to ask yourself, why would someone of Al Gore’s status sell his TV network to a known terrorist supporting news network, Osama Bin Ladin’s personal favorite choice?

    He was 500+ votes away from being President of the US, and refuses to sell to someone who supports America?

    Insanity

    IS Al Gore’s values more in line with a network that supports terrorist organizations, whose ultimate goal is the destruction of the USA? That is looking more like a statement than a question.

    LLM, I’m glad you added the ‘Al Jazeera’ clarifier to ‘terrorist mouthpiece.’ Otherwise I’d have figured it *was* going to either Fox or Beck.

    llm, you are wrong in so many ways. Al Jazeera reports Arab news because it is based in the Middle East, does not support terrorist organization, has been praised by no less than John McCain for reporting. And since when does Glen Beck support America?

    “And since when does America support Glenn Beck?”

    There. FIFY, Groucho.

    Brighthouse/Time Warner also dropped Current TV from its lineup due to the sale. Jerks.

    Well who knows, GT. Maybe if the network becomes profitable they’ll pick it up again.

    Beck’s a fascist pig. He was even too looney tunes for Fox. What sort of ‘American’ sympathizes with murderers like Behring Breivik? And you have the gall to label Al Jazeera a terrorist organization?

    I love the liberal spin…
    self-reliance is anti-American? BTW.. Beck has a much larger audience than ANY liberal TV OR radio show. what is that word again..oh yeah….minority….
    keep it going!

    “Beck has a much larger audience…”

    Which proves that both PT Barnum AND Abraham Lincoln were right.

    Beck’s popularity just underscores the fact that no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.

    Air America did.

    No, they over estimated it, thinking that some people have the power of reasoning. They were wrong.

  • Profile picture of Geoffrey Thorpe Geoffrey Thorpe said 1 year, 9 months ago:

    Air America made the mistake of thinking that reasoning people are interested in propaganda that isn’t right wing–in other words, that liberals listen to the radio. Who the heck listens to radio nowadays?

    See Groucho, that’s why we have forums like this. One person’s intelligence is another person’s gullibility. ;-)

    OK GT, if you don’t like radio there is a good example being discussed here today involving a low performing TV network.
