 What Al Gore has done is one of the biggest threats to America we can think of.

 DirecTV is leading outlet for and advertiser on Al Jazeera America television channel.
 Al Jazeera, the Arabic news television channel headquartered in the Middle East (Doha, Qatar), purchased the Current TV channel which has the potential of reaching millions viewers in the United States. Al Jazeera is the mouthpiece for the Muslim Brotherhood and Arab Spring. The Muslim Brotherhood is the single largest promoter of the Islamist extremist movement in the world. Nothing less should be expected to come from Al Jazeera's access to cable viewers in America.

 The Wall Street Journal reports: "More due diligence might have included a review of the close journalistic coverage over the years of Al Jazeera's Arabic and English broadcasts, which discloses the unsurprising fact that the network reflects the interests of the government that runs it—making it akin to Vladimir Putin's Russia Today and Beijing's Xinhua. The emir of Qatar, Hamid bin Khalifa Al Thani, appointed his cousin as chairman of Al Jazeera. The emir was last in the news for donating $400 million to Hamas, a terrorist organization." There is more information regarding Al Jazeera and their purchase of Current TV posted at the bottom of this article. "The channel is tentatively being called Al Jazeera America, but a source close to the company says that it isn't wedded to the name, and may try to create a new brand."

 According to TVNEWSER. Time Warner drops Current TV for their 12 million subscribers.
 "Al Jazeera acquired Current primarily for its U.S. distribution, which had been at 60 million homes. After Time Warner Cable dropped the network, the carriage dropped to around 40 million."

 Student News also reported "Al Jazeera seals Current TV deal, enters mainstream America despite Time Warner Cable's refusal."

 DirecTV boasts of surpassing 30 million subscribers in the United States and Latin America, more subscribers than any cable company inside the United States. Therefore, DirecTV has the capability of delivering Al Jazeera America into more homes than any company in the United States. The ranking of cable companies by their number of cable subscribers is posted below. Additionally, as shown below DirecTV is a top advertiser on the Current TV/Al Jazeera web site. Current TV has approximately 22,000 viewers. Americans by and large are NOT interested in the content of Current TV. If any increase in viewers occurs as a result of the channel becoming Al Jazeera America it will be because of Al Jazeera's Islamist propaganda which does not serve America well.

 More information regarding Al Jazeera and their purchase of Current TV:

The following report comes from Jihadwatch.org: As I noted earlier today, Al-Jazeera has been dubbed "the most powerful voice of the Muslim Brotherhood." And Pamela Geller has noted that "Al Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al Jazeera also has for years been the recipient of numerous Al Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies." The Left and the jihadis have been cooperating for years. This makes their alliance official.

 "Al Jazeera Acquires Current TV," by Brian Stelter for the New York Times, January 2 (thanks to Pamela Geller): Al Jazeera on Wednesday completed a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago. Current will provide the pan-Arab news giant with something it has sought for years: a pathway into American living rooms. Current is available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service. Rather than simply use Current to distribute its English-language channel, called Al Jazeera English and based in Doha, Qatar, Al Jazeera will create a new channel, called Al Jazeera America, based in New York. Roughly 60 percent of the programming will be produced in the United States, while the remaining 40 percent will come from Al Jazeera English.

 Here are some other headlines:
 TheBlaze.com - Meet Al Jazeera's Holocaust-Denying Televangelist... Is This What We Can Expect on the New Current TV?
 New York Post - Eliot Spitzer quits Current TV after purchase by Al Jazeera.
 Fox News - Current TV staffers rip Al Gore for sale to Al Jazeera.
 New York Post - Current situation: Staffers talk about first meeting with Al Jazeera – Some wanting to resign.
 If the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera is this repugnant and alarming to the far left staff at Current TV just imagine how bad it will be for mainstream America.
