Shouldn’t it read, “Hey! We just bought Current TV”? Odd how networks break news about themselves, so take it from the Guardian. 






Current TV is done. Al Jazeera is simply buying Current’s access to US cable operators. Al Gore will stay on as an advisor to the new network. That should shake things up in the cable news scene. Of course, there isn’t enough news for three 24/7 news networks, so it’s hard to see how Al Jazeera, a fourth, can be a good thing for the public discourse in the long term. The market will make sure its as awful as the rest, if not more so.
