Matt Lauer grills Al Gore over selling Current TV

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

NBC’s Matt Lauer interviewed Al Gore and, in a rare ‘scattered shower of journalism’ moment, actually got around to asking him some tough questions.

“I don’t know what they’ve done to Matt Lauer. I don’t know if they’ve water-boarded him or if he has just been replicated in a 3 D printer,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is one of the only times that I’ve heard Matt Lauer and I went, ‘that’s a question I would have asked.’”

In regards to Gore selling Current TV to Al-Jazeera, Lauer asked:

LAUER: According to reports I’ve seen, your take on that about $100 million pretax. Was that always just an investment to you? Maybe I was naive.

GORE: Oh, no. No, no. Absolutely.

LAUER: I thought it was something you has an ideological interest in, so why did it become an investment for you in the end?

GORE: Well, it didn’t but I’m proud of what my…

“What Matt was trying to say: maybe I was naive but I thought it was an ideological thing. You just sold your network that was all about climate change and everything else and progressivism, you’ve just sold it to an oil family,” Glenn said. “And [Lauer] says, I thought I was maybe I’m naive, but I thought this was about progressive values. I thought this was about climate with you. But you just sold it to an Islamic regime that makes all of their money destroying the Earth with carbon. Help me out.”

Gore was quick to point out that he is pleased with the work he and partner Joel Hyatt did at Current TV, and he is especially proud that they “won every major award in television journalism.”

“All you’ve got to be is super progressive and you’re going to win those awards,” Pat said.

“Oh, yeah. Just show up,” Glenn added. “Here’s what they didn’t do: Create anything that anybody watched.”

Current TV was available to nearly 50 million households, which is the reason Glenn and Al-Jazeera were interested in purchasing the network, any yet it averaged about 18,000 people a night in primetime.

“Are you kidding me,” Glenn asked. “Our reruns like in the middle of the night with just DISH and our subscribers are a lot higher than that.”

The hypocrisy runs deep at a lot of these cable companies because networks like Current TV bring in very few viewers but are carried, while TheBlaze TV is only offered one place – on DISH.

“I mean, [Gore] had 50 million homes. That’s why I tried to buy Current. Al Jazeera is not going to do Current. They are going to do Al Jazeera USA. We were going to put TheBlaze on and have 50 million homes. It took him seven years to get 50 million homes. But nobody watched it. Nobody watched it. He’s proud of a massive failure, except he got a little trophy? Al, don’t you see,” Glenn asked.

Gore went on to tell Lauer that he is proud that Current TV stood as “the only independent news and information network” that could compete in the “age of conglomerates.”

“Independent? He’s an independent? Do you know how much money they had coming from other sources,” Glenn asked. “He says, ‘we’re having trouble fighting against these conglomerates.’ I’m not. All you have to do is tell the truth. All you have to do is tell the truth. Current never told the truth.”

For his part, Lauer didn’t let Gore off the hook quite so easily.

LAUER: And yet even as you sold to Al Jazeera, you in the book blast other television news programs saying this. Virtually every news and political commentary program is sponsored in part by oil, coal and gas companies. Not just during campaign seasons but all the time year in and year out with messages designed to soothe and reassure the audience that everything is fine, the global environment is not threatened. And the critics jumped. And they said, here’s the guy who just sold Current TV to Al Jazeera which gets an undetermined amount of funding from the country of Qatar which gets its money from oil reserves. Isn’t there a contradiction in that?

GORE: I certainly understand that criticism. I disagree with it.

“How do you disagree with it,” Glenn asked. “Because I’m trying to do the math on that. There’s a lot of times that I can look at somebody’s argument and say, okay, I can see how they think that way and I don’t think this way because I think this way. I can see that. There’s no way. There’s no way. If you have a problem with commercials, commercials being on your network, how do you not have a problem with the network being owned by oil people?”

In the interview, Gore goes on to defend the selling of the network “because Al Jazeera has obviously long since established itself as a really distinguished and effective news gathering organization,” but, again, Lauer does not let him get away so easily.

LAUER: But from a country that bases its wealth on fossil fuels and fossil fuels are the enemy, you targeting climate change, isn’t there a bit of hypocrisy in that?

GORE: Well, I get the criticism. I just disagree with it because this network has established itself. It’s objective. It’s won major awards in countries around the world. And its climate coverage as I said a moment ago has been outstanding and extensive.

“So if you have a trophy, if you get a trophy, you can commit whatever global climate scene you want, and Al Gore’s all about you,” Pat asked.

“I need a trophy,” Glenn concluded. “I need a trophy because then Al Gore will accept me, and I’ll be okay.”

    Look up the modern definition of hypocrisy and you will find Al Gore listed as a perfect example. He sold his company to a foreign media that is the news and propaganda arm of the terrorists and extremists of Islam. 

    Remember that Hillary declared Al Jazeera was the preferred news outlet in the Administration, and now we know why, via Al Gore they now have gained a foothold in the nation. May the name of Al Gore ever be remembered in history on the par of Benedict Arnold.

    Gore and Lauer are both witless wonders. Both are posers at their chosen profession. Lauer only asked the question because as a progressive (read: socialist), it pissed him off that one of his heroes dumped on “the cause.” Otherwise Lauer never lucks into that question. He’s as sycophantic as he ever was.

    Just another lifetime politician that is all blow and no show! “Do as I say” cause I know what is best for all of you, but I’m not going to do what I say Cause I ‘m Better then you and I deserve BETTER. I say BULL**** If you politicians had to do what you make us citizen do I’ll bet things would be different. Like Obamacare, Taxes, Laws, Rules, Rights, Guns, and so on and so on. Its time to go back to allowing just the “Common Man” back in office. No Lawyers, all they what is to rewrite our laws to best suite them. If a President can only stay in office for 8 years than so should all elected offices. I live in a mobile home community and we all get it here and as a lower class citizens we get by on a limited budget. We have to stay on budget, cause we can’t print more money or raise taxes to save our butts. That is why I say no Lawyers, cause if we would do the things that pull in Washington DC we, the common man would go to jail. I’m just sayin,,,

    Hypocritical Liberals and Progressives [false prophets and teachers,
    angels of light—2 Cor.
    11:13-15; Jer. 23:16-40] have perverted Jesus
    Christ’s truths and have silenced His name. 
    They obviously worship the false god of the universe and his sun, stars,
    and planets—namely earth with bogus “endangered species”, “green”, and covetous
    “carnal desire”, selfishness, for things, gourmet foods, and other sensual
    activities for their own agendas of gaining power, wealth, and fame, immortalizing
    their name like unto Christ’s!  They seek
    their own disciples who disregard worship of the true living God and His commandments,
    losing spiritual discernment because of forgetting to draw upon His strength.  Jesus Christ offers eternal life; oppressive hypocrites
    offer the judgment seats of Jesus Christ!  [woe unto you . . . hypocrites!
    for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven
    against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that
    are entering to go in—Matt. 23:13]  They and their deceived will be
    accountable to God!

    This past century we have allowed our nation to fall into the hands of the deceived and deceivers, false prophets and teachers, who keep their receivers-of-bribes from knowledge of Jesus Christ and of what is truly happening in government, distracted by mindless, depraved television, music, and me-ism!  They are so blinded they could not see that
    their “chosen” was destroying businesses that provide their ease, which they want!  We must open eyes and ears, teaching and recognizing rewards of the fruit of the Spirit of our true living God, again!  We must be teaching ‘civility’ in His name, publicly and privately. 
    Without the name of Jesus Christ, things are going to get worse and worse as Satan continues to take away God-given choice, liberty, as he proves to himself he is God, instead of Jesus Christ! [Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day [when Christ comes] shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin [the devil] be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God [Know ye not . . . that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you . . . which temple ye are—1 Cor. 3:16-17], shewing himself that he is God—2 Thes. 2:3-4]  [Jesus said, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God—Matt. 22:29]

    Well, if  Gore was simply a harmless half-wit we could just laugh and go on about our business, but since he is assisting our enemies to spread their anti-American propaganda, he then become a national security concern. It will be that much easier for our enemies to smuggle that weapon in, or to just send it special delivery from afar. Would we have embraced Tokyo Rose and given her a show on American airwaves?? So why then embrace Al Jazeera? The Gore hypocrisy is a minor point IMO. Sleeping with the enemy is abhorrent.

    Al-Jazeera has a long and proven history of anti-American bias. A correspondent for Al-Jazeera, Tayseer Alouni, was convicted in Spain of collaboration with al Qaeda. Captured videotape showed Al-Jazeera’s first managing director, Mohammed Jassem al-Ali, telling Uday Hussein that Al-Jazeera was at the service of the Saddam Hussein regime. Many Jihadists have cited Al-Jazeera as the inspiration that led them to come and fight Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan. Al-Jazeera English has given favorable coverage to the Islamic Army in Iraq, an anti-American terrorist group. Former ABC Nightline correspondent Dave Marash quit his anchor job at Al-Jazeera English, citing anti-American bias and saying that the “standard for journalism on Al-Jazeera in the United States didn’t seem consistently to be as good as their standards elsewhere;”
    We should exercise good judgment as patriotic Americans, and not help to provide Al-Jazeera English the audience and the exposure that they seek. America is at war with radical Islam. Providing radical Islam with the means to propagandize in this country is damaging to American interests and our national security.

    The Qatar based Arab news network’s level of anti-American (and anti-Israel) propaganda is notorious. A few weeks ago Al Jazeera’s Beirut bureau threw a welcome home party for brutal child-killer Samir Kuntar.  Samir Kuntar is a Lebanese Druze former member of the Palestine Liberation Front. On April 22, 1979, at the age of 16, he participated in the attempted kidnapping of an Israeli family in Nahariya that resulted in the deaths of four Israelis and two of his fellow kidnappers.[1] Kuntar was convicted in an Israeli court for murder of an Israeli policeman, Eliyahu Shahar, 31 year-old Danny Haran, and Haran’s 4-year-old daughter, Einat Haran, whom he killed with blunt force against a rock. He was also convicted of indirectly causing the death of two-year-old Yael Haran by suffocation, as her mother, Smadar, tried to quiet her crying while hiding from Kuntar.[2] In 1980 Kuntar was sentenced to four life sentences.[2]
    Immediately after his arrest, Kuntar admitted to the killings,[3] but at his sentence and thereafter he denied killing the father and daughter, saying that they had been killed by security forces in the ensuing gun battle. He did admit to taking them hostage and killing Eliyahu Shahar, however.[4][5] An eyewitness testified to having seen Kuntar shoot Danny Haran, and forensic evidence presented at his trial showed that Einat’s brain tissue was found on his rifle.[6] He spent nearly three decades in prison before being released on July 16, 2008 as part of an Israel-Hezbollah prisoner swap.

    Al Jazeera is known for their anti-American and anti-Israeli hatred, having no problem twisting the facts to suit their forum.  If they are moderate, then I’m Santa Claus.

    Seeking to expand its presence in American television, Al-Jazeera, the Qatar-owned pro-jihadist news network, has agreed to buy Al Gore’s low-rated Current TV, the Wall Street Journal reports. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but a person familiar with the matter said Al-Jazeera paid about $500 million dollars for Current TV. The network, which was co-founded by Comrade Al Gore and entrepreneur Joel Hyatt in 2005, has recently been struggling with low ratings and approaching bankruptcy.
    The multimillion dollar deal came after Current TV rebuffed Glenn Beck’s The Blaze when it approached the network about buying the channel last year. According to a source close to the negotiations, officials at The Blaze were told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
    An executive for The Blaze confirmed these details on Thursday, noting that the decision not to sell to Beck’s network came only hours after executives reached out to a Current TV representative to discuss the matter. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Hyatt said that the decision to go with the Middle Eastern outlet came, in part, because, “Al-Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current TV.” Al Gore tried to get the deal finalized before the capital gains tax went to 23.5% from the 15% on January 1, 2,013 – and so saving himself $8.5 million from his gross receipt of $100 million; it is not clear whether he succeeded. “Fair share” – indeed!
    Now the AL-Jazeera, pro-jihadist network financed by the Arab oil money, can combine the AL Qaeda war proclamations with the AL Gore’s Global Warming hoax advertisements into a single call to arms against the civilized world. Imagine – Al Gore getting $85 million of Big Oil money! That low-life was caught with a hotel-visiting prostitute, causing his long-suffering wife to divorce him; I hope she can still get one half of the ill-gotten gain – whether it’s $85 million or “only” $76.5 million.

  • Anonymous

    Al Gore personifies hypocrisy in its purest form. He jets around the world in a private jet while deriding his fellow Americans for flying coach. He owns palatial homes set on huge land tracts and uses more electricity in one month than many homes use in two years. He claims that when he is driven around in armored SUV’s, it is a necessity and that he “offsets” his carbon footprint by buying carbon credits from a company which he owns. Liberalism is the fast track to wealth apparently because he often speaks of the horrors of “corporatism” while sitting on the boards of some of the largest corporations in the world and reaping capital rewards that most human beings could never dream of, all while having fools like Matt Lauer barely question any of his motivations while the rest of the liberal media simply ignores the towering hypocrisy, stating that it is not newsworthy. His claims that floods and storms are evidence for his global warming hysteria is laughable. As if the earth has never known chaotic storms or weather cycles prior to his global warming “awakening”. He is the typical liberal. He thinks he’s a scientist, yet his pathetic documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, is so full of lies, exaggeration and fiction that any scientist who would endorse such tripe would have to be either incompetent or dishonest. I agree with Snow Leopard. I’ve never witnessed a more appropriate example of blatant hypocrisy than Al Gore. Every single word he publishes he refutes through his actions, yet, because he’s on the “right” side of every issue, he is issued an automatic pass. I wish I could just be liberal…it’s so much easier than thinking and acting in accordance with your supposed “beliefs”. The only consistency in Al Gore’s life is hypocrisy.

Al Jazeera broadcast the “welcome home” party for this animal, where Ghassan bin Jiddo, the head of Al Jazeera’s Beirut office, lavished praise on Kuntar, calling him a “pan Arab hero” and organized a birthday party for him! (link) (Kuntar is the charmer who led a raid where he killed Israeli hostage, Danny Haran by shooting him in the back and then drowned him in front of Haran’s 4 year old daughter, Einat Haran. Kuntar then proceeded to smash 4 yo Einat’s head on the beach rocks and crushed her skull with the butt of his rifle until she was dead.)

    Gore’s recent actions are certainly questionable considering Al Jazeera’s sympathetic stance toward terrorists. However, it’s also amusing how Gore, who is best known as the staunch “environmentalist” and “green” propagandist, chose to sell his Current TV to a network formed and funded by the oil-rich Qatari govt (ranked #1 in the world as the highest per-capita greenhouse gas emitter). LMFAO! This man epitomises hypocrisy of the highest order!

    Your research abilities need to be refined, John.  I’m trying to be nice, but when someone like yourself insists on defending a group like Al Jazeera just because you don’t really want to hear the truth, my patience starts getting a little thin. 
     
    But to humor you, I will post the following excerpt from the Wikipedia article regarding Kuntar:
     
    “On July 19, 2008, Al Jazeera TV broadcast a program from Lebanon that covered the “welcome-home” festivities for Samir Kuntar. In the program, the head of Al Jazeera’s Beirut office, Ghassan bin Jiddo, lavished praise on Kuntar by calling him a “pan-Arab hero” and organized a birthday party for him. In response, Israel’s Government Press Office (GPO) threatened to boycott the satellite channel unless it apologized. A few days later an official letter was issued by Al Jazeera’s director general, Khanfar Wadah, in which he admitted that the program violated the station’s Code of Ethics and that he had ordered the channel’s programming director to take steps to ensure that such an incident does not recur…”
     
    Now, pick a side.  And stop being a little girl about it.

    Hypocritical Liberals and Progressives [false prophets and teachers, angels of light—2 Cor.
    11:13-15; Jer. 23:16-40] have perverted Jesus Christ’s truths and have silenced His name.
    They obviously worship the false god of the universe and his sun, stars, and planets—namely earth with bogus “endangered species”, “green”, and covetous “carnal desire”, selfishness, for things, gourmet foods, and other sensual activities for their own agendas of gaining power, wealth, and fame, immortalizing their name like unto Christ’s! They seek their own disciples who disregard worship of the true living God and His commandments, losing spiritual discernment because of forgetting to draw upon His strength. Jesus Christ offers eternal life; oppressive hypocrites offer the judgment seats of Jesus Christ! [woe unto you . . . hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in—Matt. 23:13] They and their deceived will be accountable to God!

    Maybe, just maybe, this is the first sign that the Democratic Party will become irrelevant like the GOP.  (Although, I think Al has been irrelevant for awhile now.)  If enough journalists would ask the tough questions, it could snowball into one big aha moment for those Democrats that were co-opted by the Progressives.   I do believe that  exposing one false Leftist at a time is one way to crumble the power the Progressives have over those American Democrats that share some of our core values.

    Well, it’s a good dream.

    Ha your response is laughable. First, don’t put words in my mouth and say I would still support them if they came out as supporting a child killing terrorist, because that is a pure lie and an assumption like that shows your bias. They never said they supported this man, an employee at Al-Jazeera hosted this party and the company just covered the reception. It did not represent the view of the new station and they even released a statement about it. Im not being the little girl here, I just don’t automatically blame a whole corporation for what was the fault of a biased employee with some sway within the company. 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/BCAJ6QNDELYGFTPWSUVNIKA764 John

    Yea I already saw that before you posted it buddy. And I stick to my point that one extremist man (who doesn’t work there anymore) throws a party in the company’s name, does not discredit the company as a whole. The network even apologized after the fact

    People like Al Gore are so hypocritical it is unbelievable. To think that everything he does is alright while he makes a fortune out of the lies that he and his cohorts have perpetrated on the gullible in our society and at the same time giving our enemies a foothold in our communications industry is nothing short of promoting his greed at our expense.  No one would be surprised at his ducking the hard questions with a simple “Well I just don’t see it that way.”  The only thing that matters to Al Gore is his pocketbook and anything that can contribute to his bottom line is okay.

    Of course we have been selling our banks and business to the oil powers of the world since the 1970′s and all they have done is seek our destruction. We have had fears of nuclear war for decades without realizing that we are selling our “souls” to our enemies. Nikita Khrushev summed it up in his speech when he said the Soviet Union would bury us and would do it without firing a shot. We have sold out in the name of politcal and economic expediency. Our enemies have cjhanged but their intent is still the same. Bleed America dry so they will surrender without a fight. Our enemies use many sources including the greed of our citizens to gain the upper hand and we glibly accept it like sheep going to the slaughter.

    Haha your funny man, Ill give you that much. Your revert to calling me a girl and claiming that Im the problem when you can’t provide sufficient information to back your very extreme claim. In fact, I would go as far as to say that you are what is wrong with the world. People who just mindlessly believe whatever they are told and make wide generalizations should not be allowed to speak on such topics. And since when do I have an Islamic-feast? Im just simply not implying that everything coming out of the Middle east is linked to al-queda. Good luck with your life buddy ;)

  • Jimpsonseed

    I call you a girl because you’re not man enough to admit that you’re siding for Al-Jazeera, KNOWING that they should have fired the correspondent for throwing the party but instead, they actually covered it on their station.  You’re here saying that they didn’t condone his behavior, yet there was never any retribution for him doing so.  And if you’re too retarded to make the connection after the connection was made for you, then I stand by my comments.  You’re a little sissy boy liberal troll…and I feel bad for sissies for having to put you and them in the same sentence.

    Again, you act as if this one incident disqualifies an entire company. If you too stupid to realize that this simply isn’t enough information then please stop responding. The man was in control of the situation and therefore forced the party to be covered. The man who committed this was a highly regarded journalist and one of the most popular men on the program. I admit they should have given a punishment, but I cannot strike down a whole company’s reputation off one incident  I guess im not as feeble minded as you are. Know if you have any better arguments that would be great. The whole “sissy”-calling makes you look like a 12 year old child trying to show how tough he is. ;)

    Hey you little puss…you’re the one who responded to MY post.  So let’s say that because you’re too much of a coward to admit that you are clearly too dumb to understand that a known anti-American and anti-Israeli station doesn’t so much as blink when their “highly regarded” journalist pulls such a stunt, why don’t you not respond, you little troll.  He was highly regarded because they’re all the same.  But I guess those two IQ points that you have going on there aren’t enough to rub together to light a match, let alone see how it is a trend at Al Jazeera.  Face it John, you’re a coward and you’d rather defend an Islamic station over the life of a little girl who had her head bashed in with the butt end of a rifle.  You sick twisted fk!
