Yes, but now it can have zero viewers on an even bigger scale!

And that’s not all that’s going to change:

There is soooo much potential here …

Update:

Time Warner had said it would be dropping the channel as soon as possible, and it wasn’t kidding. Seriously, who knew the cable company could act that quickly when it wanted to?

    FINALLY! Current TV will be owned by someone who hates America slightly less than the network’s founder.

      Zing! {Bullseye!} (Clapping)

    One wonders if a divorce will be the next stipulation in Joy (less) Behar’s contract?

    Nothing more exciting than terrorists owning a washed-up left-wing TV channel! #sarc

      no, gore SOLD it.
      oh wait, now I am confused as to which one is the terrorist :)

  • peteee363

    will they send the current, current employee’s over to the middle east for re-education? and will they make the female employee’s cover up?

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      No. The current Current people will teach the future Current people that Amerikkka is more evil than even Islamists had considered.

    So they bought two wooden chairs, an old 386 computer, and a power strip. Not bad for $25.

    • SineWaveII

      ROFL…wait a minute POWER STRIP? What are you a pollution loving nazi? Everybody at Current has to run in a giant hamster wheel to power the station. Everybody knows that….sheeesh.

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        And PLEASE ensure that they are hamsters. That last shipment of gerbils to Current got, ummm…lost.

          Keith Olbermann was spotted loitering around the truck. Hmmm….

  • FatBoySlimDude

    Ali Hussein Gore will get rich off of this. Wasn’t he a VP at one time and sworn to defend the USA? Guess that is so yesterday.

    • SineWaveII

      (sighs) you mean “even richer” …(sighs again)

    Hahaha! Racism! It must feel really good to vent all your pent up rage considering Fox’s major non-Murdoch shareholder is a Saudi prince and the GOP Congress is an utter disaster in dire need of Sandy aid.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      If we wanted to be racist and openly voice our hatred, we’d join the Democrat Party.

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        Good point.

    • ClarkFL

      Feel good in that Democrats created the Klan. Racism is your bread and butter. Our history comes from freeing slaves. Your history comes from fighting for slavery.

    • gtwreck

      Did Fox shill for Global Warming? Don’t recall that so why can a Saudi prince not use oil money to buy a share in Fox? Current TV, on the other hand, was a Global warming (Climate change?) proponent selling out to Oil money.

      • beebop1952

        Please. You are using fact based logic to speak with someone completely out of touch with it.

  • dftl

    I have nothing to add, but Al Gorezeera??? That made my whole day!

  • ClarkFL

    Good to see Al Gore and his loser network admit that Al-Jazeera and Current have the same philosophy: Anti-American bias and Anti-Semitism. Maybe their slogan can be “We’re the same as MSNBC, but only more Jew hating and race baiting.”

    Joy Behar in a burqua. Justice.

  • gtwreck

    Look at the bright side people. We now have a news network that will not reflexively bash the Oil companies.

  • ParasiteHunter

    Now the filthy vermin have a television outlet to spread their vile propaganda. But Al Jazeera will soon take over.
