Progressives Prefer Al-Jazeera Over Glenn Beck


Every 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."

Wow. At least we know where the Progressives stand. And don't forget, a lot of academic historians identify as Progressives. Probably a good idea to keep that in mind when reading their work. 

Oh, and there's this part of the story we want to be sure everyone sees:

Mr. Gore and his partners were eager to complete the deal by Dec. 31, lest it be subject to higher tax rates that took effect on Jan. 1, according to several people . . .
 Frauds.

Maybe it is just unabashed capitalism...

And maybe Al-Jazeera just wants to report the news.

Or maybe you were referring to Al Gore's attempt to dodge taxes? ;-)

Glenn Beck is a domestic terrorist in his own right. Just like Rush Limbaugh. They have done more to foster hate in this country than any other “journalist” and I welcome Al Jazeera over the CIB network, The Blaze or Fox News any day.

Thanks Josh. At least we know where you stand. I assume you're fond of Pravda too?

Yes, we know. Disagreeing with the left is hateful. Don't you just feel the love whenever Ed Shultz and Chris Matthews are speaking?

It could be both are examples of unabashed capitalism...

Unabashed hypocrisy would be more accurate.
