Leftist Jihadist Media Nexus: Terror TV, Al Jazeera Acquires Gore’s Current TV “Al Jazeera America”

46

Al jizz

Full circle and out of the proverbial closet. The left goes full-on jihad. Al Jazeera has acquired Current TV. More jihadist propaganda on your cable dial. Lord knows that there is a plethora of Muslim Brotherhood mouthpieces on broadband, but a dearth of pro-freedom voices (i.e. SUN TV).

Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in
the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al
Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was
arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years been the
recipient of numerous Al Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and
American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace
where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at
the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could
take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies.

The dhimmi NY TImes call the acquisition "a coming-of-age
moment" for Al Jazeera. Let's hope Mr. Stelter didn't wet his pants. It seems that the NY Times was bidding on Current as well, but clearly could not compete with the fat wallets of the jihadists:

For Al Jazeera, the acquisition is a coming-of-age
moment. A decade ago, the Arabic-language channel was reviled by
American politicians for showing video tapes and messages from al Qaeda
members and sympathizers. Now it is acquiring an American channel.

We have been fighting this vile Muslim Brotherhood propaganda on our airwaves for years now. A few months back I joined forces with Cliff Kincaid of AIM,
along with human rights activists and advocates for journalistic
integrity, to protest the expansion of Al-Jazeera, terror TV, in the
United States. I wrote about it here at The Daily Caller.

The Al Jizz jihadists have have performed an end run:

To
date, the country’s cable and satellite distributors have been
reluctant to carry Al Jazeera English. It is available in just a handful
of cities, including New York and Washington. To change that, Al
Jazeera has lobbied distributors, called for a letter-writing campaign
by supporters and promoted its widely praised coverage of the Arab
Spring.

Acquiring Current TV, and thus its distribution deals
across the country, solves this dilemma for Al Jazeera, at least
partially.

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called
the broadcaster’s reporting "vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable" and
President George W. Bush joked about bombing it, and senior Bush
officials caricatured the channel as an anti-Semitic, anti-American
outlet for Islamo-porn. And here we are eleven years after the largest and
bloodiest Islamic attack on America and Al Jizz is buying Gore TV. This is a major step in the network’s goal of
expanding jihad propaganda further into the U.S. cable market and gives
it a chance to brainwash millions of Americans.

How much did those traitors sell us out for? Al Jazeera is a security threat to America. Demand investigative hearings.

"Al Jazeera Acquires Current TV" NY Times, Brian Stelter (thanks to Armaros)

Al
Jazeera on Wednesday completed a deal to take over Current TV, the
low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business
partners seven years ago.

Current will provide the pan-Arab news
giant with something it has sought for years: a pathway into American
living rooms. Current is available in about 60 million of the 100
million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service.

Rather
than simply use Current to distribute its English-language channel,
called Al Jazeera English and based in Doha, Qatar, Al Jazeera will
create a new channel, called Al Jazeera America, based in New York.
Roughly 60 percent of the programming will be produced in the United
States, while the remaining 40 percent will come from Al Jazeera
English.

Al Jazeera may absorb some Current TV staff members,
according to people with knowledge of the deal who insisted on anonymity
because they were not authorized to speak publicly. But Current’s
schedule of shows will most likely be dissolved in the spring.

“Al
Jazeera is planning to invest significantly in building ‘Al Jazeera
America,’
a network focused on international news for the American
audience,” the Current chief executive Joel Hyatt said in an e-mail to
staffers on Wednesday evening. Referring to Mr. Gore, he said, “Al and I
will both serve on the advisory board of Al Jazeera America, and we
look forward to helping build an important news network.”

The
plan will bring Al Jazeera, which is financed by the government of
Qatar, into closer competition with CNN and other news channels in the
United States.

For Al Jazeera, the acquisition is a coming-of-age
moment. A decade ago, the Arabic-language channel was reviled by
American politicians for showing video tapes and messages from al Qaeda
members and sympathizers. Now it is acquiring an American channel.

“They
really want to be able to compete for American viewers, and they have
to find some way to get on,” said Philip Seib, the director of the
center on public diplomacy at the University of Southern California and
the author of “The Al Jazeera Effect.”

Mr. Seib said access to
Americans is important both for economic reasons, for the channel’s
advertisers, and for “the journalistic legitimacy of their venture.”

To
date, the country’s cable and satellite distributors have been
reluctant to carry Al Jazeera English. It is available in just a handful
of cities, including New York and Washington. To change that, Al
Jazeera has lobbied distributors, called for a letter-writing campaign
by supporters and promoted its widely praised coverage of the Arab
Spring.

Acquiring Current TV, and thus its distribution deals
across the country, solves this dilemma for Al Jazeera, at least
partially.

Current is hard to find on many cable lineups, and some
analysts say it’s at risk of being dropped by some companies because of
low ratings, but it would give Al Jazeera a foothold on the country’s
cable and satellite service lineups. Then Al Jazeera could revamp the
channel and promote it as a new American-based news source.

Representatives
for Current TV and Al Jazeera did not immediately respond to requests
for comment. There was no immediate word about the sale price.

Current
was conceived in 2005 after Mr. Gore and another co-founder, Joel
Hyatt, bought the small cable news channel Newsworld International.
Current’s owners, along with Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, include several
venture capital firms and two major distributors, Comcast and DirecTV.

After
several years in obscurity showing viewer-submitted videos and
documentaries, Current tacked to the left in 2011 with the hiring of
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann
. A year later, Mr. Olbermann was fired, but a
liberal minded channel made in his image remained. The channel now
simulcasts liberal radio shows in the morning and features news-talk
shows in the evening by Joy Behar, Eliot Spitzer, Jennifer Granholm and
others.

None of the shows have drawn significant audiences. On a
typical night in 2012, about 42,000 people were watching the channel,
according to Nielsen. Mr. Spitzer quipped to a reporter from Mediabistro last month, “Nobody’s watching, but I’m having a great time.”

At the end of October, Current confirmed
that it was considering selling itself. Mr. Hyatt said in a statement
at the time, “Current has been approached many times by media companies
interested in acquiring our company. This year alone, we have had three
inquiries. As a consequence, we thought it might be useful to engage
expertise to help us evaluate our strategic options.”

The New York Times Company mulled a bid for the channel, but decided not to do so.

In
recent months, uncertainty has plagued the staff of Current, which is
based in San Francisco. Mr. Spitzer, the 8 p.m. host, remarked that
someone needed to buy the channel. Ms. Granholm, the 9 p.m. host,
renewed her contract for just three months. Plans for new programming at
other hours have stalled. After the elementary school massacre in
Newtown, Conn., the channel replayed the gun documentary “Bowling for
Columbine” dozens of times.

Current’s programming will continue
for about three months. Then an international feed of Al Jazeera English
will be simulcast on the channel. Sometime later in 2013, the rebranded
Al Jazeera news channel, with 60 percent American programming, will
start.

Al Jazeera intends to open new bureaus across the United
States to support the American programming.
The news operation currently
has bureaus in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Miami, and Chicago.
