Al Jazeera has bought Al Gore’s Current TV. They will open offices in New York City and visit living rooms across the U.S. as Al Jazeera America. In Summer 2012, the former Vice President said America needed “an American spring — you know, the Arab spring,”Â Gore’s Current TV co-owner said of those interested in purchasing the struggling cable programming, Al Jazeera:

Keith Olbermann and his “Olbermann Broadcasting EMPIRE” sued Current TV for $50 to $70 Million for firing him. Olbermann reportedly told David Letterman “the nice judge will decide if I get more of my money.”Â Â I see no reporting on a settlement or verdict on the April 2012 lawsuit.

Surely Al Jazeera will keep these dazzling personalities on-air and find a way to tip-toe into your home and teach your children about the mercies of Islam. I can’t wait to see Joy all burkahed-up.Â Read more at Hot Air.Â Photo Credit:Â CineSource
