Current TV owned by former Vice President Al Gore has gone dark from Time Warner Cable Channel 134. It has been bought by Al-Jazeera. Now the Pan-Arab news channel will reach into the U.S. by nearly nine times it’s current viewing audience to some 40 million homes.
Vice-President Gore said in a statement;

Al-Jazeera, which is owned by the government of Qatar, shares Current TV’s mission, quote, “to give voice to those who are not typically heard; to speak truth to power; to provide independent and diverse points of view; and to tell the stories that no one else is telling.”

The new TV News network plans to gradually transform into a network called Al-Jazeera America. They’ll add five to 10 new U.S. bureaus. Currently Al-Jazeera five bureaus with it’s main network headquarters in New York. What can we expect to hit the American broadcast airwaves? All we can say right now is that Al-Jazeera English has earned respect in the industry for its serious news coverage. As a matter of fact, it’s won numerous journalism awards.
