Heh: Any takers? Al Gore’s flailing Current TV is up for sale

Check the couch cushions? What kind of big spender are you?

Al Gore’s Current TV is reportedly on the market and the Twitterverse can’t help but snicker at the failing left-wing network.

We’re guessing a bit of stray pocket lint will put you in the running to boss around “talent” like Joy Behar, Eliot Spitzer and Jennifer Granholm.

And which is the better deal?

Evidently Current TV is an actual television network carried by actual cable providers. Who knew?

The New York Post reports that a whopping three buyers have made inquiries. The article did not confirm whether those inquiries consisted of questions like, “Are you freakin’ kidding me?”

Twitterers have a couple of great suggestions for possible buyers.

Make it happen!

    I just want Trump to buy it so he can say you hacks are all FIRED !!!!! Where will we find Graham acting like a nutjob now? Oh and don’t tell me the Young Turks will go, how else will I get bored to sleep….

      I’d watch that on Pay Per View!

        Big bucket of Popcorn and a 12 pack. I’d be all set…lol..

    Current TV For Sale:

    The Mannlicher Rifles of Liberal Moon Bat Political Television.

    Dropped once. Never fired!

  • West_Coast

    Make it a conservative channel and watch the ratings soar

      It’s called Blaze TV and they clobber Current on even their slowest day.

  • Jim Denney

    That begs the question; if you have to use external sources to announce your TV network is for sale, do you really have a network?

  • SansMercy

    No company wants to make an ad buy with a network who’s viewers are depressed and fully medicated.

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I thought Current TV and Global Warming were the same. A figment of someone’s imagination.

  • Thought Criminal #1

    I think Breitbart should buy it, and turn it into a huge Capitalist haven of profit and success.

    • TwitWit

      That would be most AWESOME!

      • Adela Wagner

        Beck is on Dish, channel 212, Blaze TV. I think he should buy Current and then keep Joy, Elliot et al and offer them shows along the lines of “Jackass”, not that they don’t already act that way, but it would be fun to see them doing stoopid stunts to go along with their stooopid rhetoric.

        • TwitWit

          I like that idea.

    • Jim Wafwot

      Glenn Beck could buy it and put GBTV on cable and satellite!

  • Right Wired

    Scare America Part Deux is for sale? LOL!
    How soon before Al Gore steals money from Boy Scouts to keep it afloat?

  • TomJB

    3 inquiries? Next it will be up in the trade section of Craigslist in exchange for either a used but working weed whacker or 2 bags of recycled cat litter.

  • TomJB

    TwitchyTV anyone?

      TwitchyTV anyone?

      It would be better than TMZ.

  • Paul C.

    Doesn’t Keith Olbermann work there, will he be in the unemployment line (grin).

    • TwitWit

      I think Keith was fired..

  • GaryTheBrave

    Current TV, a division of Fox News Channel.

    • Paul C.

      Yea the lower back division.

    • TexSizzle

      Is that a suggestion for Fox to buy them out?

      • GaryTheBrave

        Yes, it’d be an improvement for Current. Just as Fox has business and sports channels, they could make Current the entertainment news channel.

  • JoH113

    Glenn? Michael? Wanna buy a network? There’s a big shiny knife begging to be twisted! 😉

  • scrubjay

    It’s a buyer’s market for kook leftist media outlets. Air America mouldering in the grave, Newsweek ($1) stops print format. Now Current aka Low Voltage is on the rocks. What a chop. Bring back News World International. At least it had 20 million viewer audience.

  • tjp77

    The Koch brothers should buy it, just for fun. Or Glenn Beck. That would be awesome.

  • TocksNedlog

    I’d buy that for a dollar!

    Uh, they can make change; right?

  • Jim Parkinson

    Hey Twitchy readers – let’s pool our money together and buy Current TV! I’ve got 83 cents…wait – we won’t need any more than that.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    I’d buy it just for the price of them paying me the amount of their prospective outstanding liabilities. It’d be a great turn-around opportunity. Turn it into a conservative channel and it’d be a big hit. Make a decent profit and Gore would be more red faced than usual.

  • rant stocks

    Proof anything the libral left does….is a failure.

  • Love of Country

    Of course Newsweak magazine was sold for one dollar ….. so perhaps Current TV should go for at least that much …. perhaps a buck fifty provided there is no debt which I would guess would be unlikely. As such … No deal!

    BTW Al ….. everyone is laughing at you …. George W, Tipper, your own dog and America at large …. ha ha!


  • Discontentwliars

    I understood the EPA to say that there was 2 much hot air and carbon emmisions that they needed to shut it down.

  • Hello Jerry (D)

    I’m sure Occupy Wall Street can pony up the money to buy it…

  • Nutstuyu

    God, I wish Brietbart.com or Hotair.com would buy it. Can we invest?

  • Rich Davie

    Knowing that the Current network was owned by “Algore” and that OWN was owned by Oprah Winfrey, was enough to make me avoid those channels at all costs… I even skip them while channel surfing.

    Maybe Beck can get a sweet “Newsweek for a buck” deal and acquire the station.

    Silly leftist libs… you’d figure that they’d get the point by now, the majority of America has zero interest in your delusional rhetoric.

    I love seeing a leftist propaganda ship go down in flames. :)
