Current TV staffer: "Al Gore is a bulls*tter!"

Just call him Al Gorezeera.

Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.
“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.

“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”

The meeting, while not contentious, was, according to staffers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, miserable.

The mostly left-leaning group—some still in denial —weren’t buying what Al Jazeera was selling.

And what are they selling? Al Jazeera’s image of —are you ready?— “inform, inspire and entertain!”

Al Gore is such a hypocrite, it's almost funny! Bump

I think he sold it to Al

I think he sold it to Al Jazeera to avoid taxes starting this year. And because no one watched current.

He took all those confused leftists for a ride. Thank goodness thousands of professors are now for the wiser. Perhaps they should return retroactively parts of their salary for their lack of professionalism and ignorance and of course irresponsibility.

As well any students who took their courses should get half their money back :)

An inconvenient proof

Al Gore is a scientifically proven bullshitter. As a climate scientist the criteria for legitimacy is simple and clear. Scientists form a theory and then make predictions which will prove/disprove the hypothesis. Mr Gore's movie was loaded with predictions and not one them has proven to be even remotely true. Al Gore is a total fail. Movie came out about ten years ago and all of Al's "10 year" forecasts were worthless.

Wah Wah Wah

Maybe the libs will start waking up to see their precious leaders aren't who they think they are.
