heh heh heh the irony is just too much. Oil money buys Gore's network.

"Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1"

And he avoided paying taxes as a bonus. heh heh heh this is too funny.

"On Wednesday, Mr. Hyatt praised Al Jazeera for “bringing large-scale resources to journalism"

Love that one too. Large scale resources. heh heh heh... uh you mean huge oil profits? heh heh heh

This has got to be a Colbert or Saturday Night Live skit right?

"There’s a major hole right now that Al Jazeera can fill. And that is providing an alternative viewpoint to domestic news"

ROTFLMAO! Anyone remember the coverage on Al Jazeera during the first Gulf war?

" Mr. Gore personally lobbied the distributors that carry Current on the importance of Al Jazeera"

Wonder if Mr Gore will be buying any oil company shares with his $100 million windfall?

Real life is so much funnier then what people can make up.
