Al Jazeera completes
deal to buy Current TV

Los Angeles Times, by Joe Flint

Original Article

Posted By:loosbolt, 1/2/2013 9:19:52 PM

Current TV, the small cable news channel that was co-founded by former vice president Al Gore, has been sold to Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based media company. The acquisition gives Al Jazeera, which is funded by the Qatar government, the opportunity to establish a footprint in the United States, where it already has an English-language version of its Qatar service -- called Al Jazeera English -- but only limited reach. Just buying Current does not guarantee instant distribution, however. Time Warner Cable, which offered Current in roughly 10 million of its homes, is dropping the channel.

If Al Jazeera gets all of Current TV´s viewers that means they will start with 17...and that is including Big Al and Michael Moore

Looks like Current TV will become a little less left-wing and radical.

More, or less, anti-American?
Or the same hateful anti-American slant?

A vice president of the United States selling out to a pro terrorist supporter like Al Jazeera!!!!

9/11 was not that long ago. I remember the democrats being supportive of the United States afterward for about 1 week then Bill Clinton started criticizing us in a speech over in Europe. The democrats have been stabbing us ever since.

Over the holiday week Current TV was running spots on The Military Channel running on NJ Cablevision...there´s a coincidence here somewhere.

It should also be noted that the other co-founder is another hard leftie, Joel Hyatt (Hyatt Legal Services now part of MetLife, not Hyatt Hotels). And that both the Gorebot and Hyatt will be on AlJazeera America´s advisory board. These two truly hate their country.

So Gorebot has been paid millions upon millions of dollars that come from a network funded by oil producing nations. On top of that hypocrisy, he -- Progressive Democrat extraordinaire -- pushed the deal to be completed by by midnight December 31 so as to avoid being hit by the tax increase.

It must be nice to have your perfidy smoothed over by the media machine.

Had to sacrifice the "Golf Channel" to trim down my DISH subscription so I would not be paying for MSNBC, Current, MTV, etc. I refuse to pay for this garbage even if I have to give up some channels I like. It is a matter of principle. If everyone would do this they would get the message and throw the rats off the ship!

A sign from above? Lightning
strikes Vatican hours after
Pope´s shock resignation
Mirror [UK], by Paul Cockerton    Original Article

This was the moment lightning struck the Vatican today - hours after Pope Benedict XVI´s bolt-from-the-blue resignation. The lightning touched the dome of St. Peter´s Basilica, one of the holiest Catholic churches, after the Pope´s shock admission he lacks strength to do the job. The Vatican stressed that no specific medical condition prompted Benedict´s decision to quit - the first pontiff to do so in 600 years. The move surprised even his closest aides, even though Benedict, 85, had made clear in the past he would step down if he became too old or infirm.

Bill Clinton to receive

Former president Bill Clinton can add Father of the Year to the many awards he´s garnered in his decades of public service. The National Father´s Day Council, which has been giving out such an honor for 72 years, has named Clinton one of its recipients for 2013. "With the profound generosity, leadership and tireless dedication to both his public office and many philanthropic organizations, President Clinton exemplifies the attributes that we celebrate through the Father of the Year award," said Dan Orwig, chairman of the National Father´s Day Committee.

Reformed crooks say the New York newspaper that published a map of names and addresses of gun owners did a great service – to their old cronies in the burglary trade. The information published online by the Journal-News, a daily paper serving the New York suburbs of Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties, could be highly useful to thieves in two ways, former burglars told FoxNews.com. Crooks looking to avoid getting shot now know which targets are soft and those who need weapons know where they can steal them. “That was the most asinine article I’ve ever seen,” said Walter T.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
