Glenn Beck Rejected By Al Gore In Bid To Buy Current TV
Poor Glenn Beck – he has just taken to the networking site Twitter to reveal to the world that Al Gore rejected his offer to purchase Current TV – it took Gore less than 15 minutes to tell him that he was not interested in his bid.
The author of “An Inconvenient Book: Real Solutions to the World’s Biggest Problems” and “The Real America: Messages from the Heart and Heartland” explained that his company Mercury Radio Arts was not even allowed on the negotiating table because the former vice president of the United States was not looking for the highest bidder but was instead searching for someone who shared his ideology.
The host of the Glenn Beck Program said:
“[Gore] didn’t sell to the highest bidder. We were not allowed to the table. He didn’t sell to the highest bidder. He looked for, who do I ideologically align with.”
Al Gore who had been looking for a buyer for several months now has sold the television network to the Qatar based network Al Jazeera for about $125 million.
Current TV (all of the network’s old contents will be dumped) and will now be called “Al Jazeera America,” and will be airing its own line of programs in English to about 40 million homes in America.
It has also been announced that Time Warner Cable will no longer carry Current TV now known as “Al Jazeera America,” – it is being speculated that the company is fearful of working with an Arabian network.
