Al Jazeera America — which acquired Current TV in January — had been dealt a setback when the massive Time Warner Cable decided to drop Current TV from its lineup. The news network reached a carriage agreement with the cable company in October, and subscribers to Time Warner Cable's “Variety Pass” will have access to the channel.

    I won't watch this, Al Gore supports this anti-American network. Please do not give this terror support organization a foothold on American soil by watching it.

      Good. Don't watch it – better you do the world a favor and drop dead instead. And while you're at it, please stop posting on the internet – nobody is impressed by your stupidity.

        I have researched your numerous other posts and have observed the following indisputable facts:
        You hate Jews, Republicans, Christians, Conservatives, America and generally ANYONE with an oppinion different than yours.
        You are the Troll that hides in the shadows waiting to pounce on unsuspecting people posting here.
        Your exteme anger shows you are in need of help, Try refraining from attacking people and get some.

        I won't be back here so go ahead and post some more words of hate here, I know you can't resist it. After all, you can't keep
        that much anger and hate all bottled up, you would go NUTS!

          NO YOU SCUMBAG – YOU ARE THE ONE WHO ‘HATES’ ANYONE WITH AN OPINION DIFFERENT TO YOURS.

          Yes, I DO hate fascists, right-wing religious fundie nut-bags and corporate propagandaist scumbags – if ‘joos, Repubs, Crizz-tianz, Conserva-tards, Ameri-c*nts and other assorted A-holes ‘ comprise the intolerant fascist vermin (like you – who is so hypocritical they bark like dogs about ‘freedom’ yet support the censorship of channels who allow opposing world-views on air) I attack , then that IS NOT MY PROBLEM. Understand? YOUR HYPOCRISY (in the fact that you accuse me of hating differing opinions, while you display the same characteristics you accuse me of) IS NOT MY PROBLEM – it's yours. And only yours.

          So I'm the troll now? That's funny – considering that you describe yourself as ‘unsuspecting’ yet slander an ENTIRE news network WITHOUT ANY PROOF OR FACTS and promptly reply back knowing full well your inflammatory post would get angry replies back.

          P.S You need some psychological help – perhaps some time in a straight-jacket at the local nut-house since you think that anyone who gives accurate news reports about America and it's under-handed dealings in starting wars to secure natural resources is ‘terrorist supporting'!

          You won't be back here? Good. And you deserve every bit of scorn you get – and don't bother claiming that I'm nuts when you ALREADY ARE!

            I hear real estate is pretty afforidable in Iraq. Maybe you should move back there? You wouldn't have to pay for cable and could still watch Al Jazeera, not that there's anything wrong with that….

          • jaykayDX

            No thanks – Iraq was ruined by you b*stards – why don't you go there since you claim that it's ‘safe’ now that it's ‘liberated'?

    • jaykayDX

      So anybody who reports the TRUTH about what the US is REALLY doing in The Middle East is a ‘terror organization'?

    • jaykayDX

      So let me get this straight, anybody who doesn't kiss Israel's backside and reports the opposing side's views is a ‘terror support organization'?

    • jaykayDX

      By that token, shouldn't all US news channels be banned from the rest of the world? As most of them supported the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan – and war is state-sanctioned terrorism?

      • SteveGuy

        No Just Al Jazeera and CNN

        • jaykayDX

          What, no Faux Noise – aaah wait, they're not a ‘news’ channel at all – just ‘opinion'! Oh, and Al Jazeera never supported the US war in Iraq, moron ….

    • jaykayDX

      Oh. So if Al Gore ate a hot dog at a stand, does that mean that a) you refuse to eat there and b) The hot dog vendor supports ‘terror’ by allowing Al Gore to eat there – since everything Al Gore touches is supposedly ‘Anti-American'?

  • SteveGuy

    I say we cut the heads off Time Warner executieves and let Al Jazeera air it. Now thats reporting.

    • jaykayDX

      Why don't we chop off your head and film it? It'd be pretty entertaining – and you'd probably won't lose much anyway since you hardly use your head anyway…..
