Glenn Beck Tried To Buy Current TV, Too, But His Offer Was Rejected, As He Didn't Share Al Gore's Worldview

And you know who did? Why, Al Jazeera, of course.

very once in a while a tweet appears that's so silly, it must be a joke. Like this one from Glenn Beck: "Before Al-Jazeera bought Current TV, TheBlaze looked into buying it but we were rejected by progressive owners." Guess what? He's totally serious. The Wall Street Journal caught the detail in its coverage: "Glenn Beck's The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that 'the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,' according to a person familiar with the negotiations."

Also, as @benk84 told you ten hours ago, Al Gore tried to hurry up the sale so he could avoid the increased taxes beginning January 1st.

Lot of interesting stories the media has no interest in, eh? The media justifies its intense coverage of Republican sexual affairs on grounds that they evidence hypocrisy, and so are more important than the affair itself; but when Al Gore tries to avoid the higher tax rates he agitates for, it's a single sentence in dispatch.
