Man who invented the internet sells cable channel to Arabs
 
Did ANYONE know Al Gore owned 20% of a cable channel (Current TV). The channel has reportedly been sold to the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeeera. For his 20% share, Gore supposedly netted $100 million. Al-Jazeera states it plans to kill Current TV and turn it into Al-Jazeera America.

Glen Beck offered to buy the channel, but was turned down. The new owner is excited to be able to broadcast Islam to America. :idunno:

Only good thing IMHO is that Snore wasn't able to sell it before jan 1 tax increase.
