$500M??? That's a ridiculous price....practical like a payoff to al gore. there's no way it's worth that much. this channel is going be dropped from every cable operator that doesn't current get al jezeera. there is a REASON why al jezeera isn't fully distributed in the US. buying current tv and rebranding it isn't changing anything.
Gore was quoted as saying he wanted to sell it to an entity that was "closely aligned" with the ideology and philosophy of Current TV. And this guy was a few hundred votes away from being our President? It scares the he11 out of me. Of course that is what we ended up with eventually afterall. God help us@!
