Gore’s TV Staffers Not Happy About Being Sold to Al Jazeera


Al Gore may have gotten a multi-million dollar payday from his new friends in Jihadland, but his Current TV employees don’t seem so all fired up about being sold to Al Jazeera.

Current TV employees were called to an early staff meeting in San Francisco and via teleconference to the New York and Los Angeles offices in order to be introduced to their new Al Jazeera masters.

Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of Al Jazeera’s international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau were in attendance and so was Al Gore’s partner Joel Hyatt. But, Al Gore, Current TV’s globalwarming-pushing star was nowhere to be seen.

“Of course Al didn’t show up,” one staffer grumbled. “He has no credibility.”

Gore has been pushing his globalwarming snake oil for years now and has always done so in the offices of Current TV. But now staffers feel Gore is “nothing but a bulls***ter” for having sold his stake in the cable network to some of the biggest oil producers in the world.

Some staffers are reported as having been disgusted by Gore’s insistence that the network play up stories about how great Obama’s tax hikes were going to be, yet Gore himself made sure to get his monumental payday before all those tax rates were hiked.

Already two of the flailing network’s putative “stars” have announced they are leaving their shows. Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm was the first to announce she was leaving. This week it was Eliot Spitzer’s turn to announce his departure.

Al Jazeera’s top men say that they’ll be taking over programming in April. The plan will be to “inform, inspire and entertain.”
