Al Gore TV

I was a big fan of International News, it gave a world perspective of what others considered the news of the day. But now that is gone, bought out by Al Gore and what we have instead is a waste of time...Betting a Network on Youths Who Think - New York Times:

It was impossible not to snicker a little at the notion of Al Gore creating a hip, youth-oriented cable network, and sure enough, Current TV is at first glance a punch line: MTV without the music.

But after only three weeks, Current is not a joke. It actually lives up to its billing as a slick, commercial cable network that gives its audience a voice in the programming.
