The world has learned a lot about Al Gore these past few days. Al "the environmentalist" Gore is apparently less offended by Qatar's world-leading oil exports than by the prospect of missing out on pocketing $100 million. And, less offended by Al Jazeera's pro-terrorism, anti-American propaganda than by Glenn Beck's conservatism.
When Glenn Beck offered to buy Al Gore's Current TV network, we've learned, Gore reportedly refused to sell it to him because, as the Wall Street Journal reports, Gore said, "We are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view."
So, Gore refused to sell to someone with views like Glenn Beck, but DID sell to Al Jazeera, the radical Muslim network out of Qatar, which by the way, just happens to be one of the world's largest exporters of oil.
What kind of "Inconvenient Truth" did that present for Al "the environmentalist" Gore? Apparently none.
Al Jazeera has a long history of anti-American and pro-Islamic radical propaganda, and it even ran a documentary sympathetic to Osama Bin Laden. And now, it will have access to 60 million American homes, thanks to Al Gore's willingness to sell them his TV network.
By the way, regarding Gore's profit of $100 million dollars on the deal, even the left wing New York Times reported that he tried very hard to get the deal closed before the end of the year so he could avoid the Obama tax increases on capital gains.
Guess he didn't want to pay his "fair share" like a good liberal.
I'm not saying he shouldn't have been allowed to make the deal with Al Jazeera. After all, this is America and he has that right. But I would be troubled with ANY American businessman who saw nothing wrong morally, ethically or patriotically with making $100 million by selling his TV network to an anti-American, pro-terrorism propaganda arm of the Middle East to give them a foothold on American television - let alone, a former Vice President of the United States!
I guess Al Gore sees nothing wrong with that, but at least he DID protect Americans from the opinions of Glenn Beck and got his 30 pieces of silver.
