Al Gore Sues Al Jazeera For Fraud And Breach Of Contract
Yes, Al Gore is suing Al-Jezeera for $65 million and legal costs for fraud and breach of contract.
He and his partner Joel Hyatt are claiming that Jihad-TV is refusing to pay up in full for the sale of Gore and Hyatt's comatose Current TV network to Qatar-owned al Jazeera for $500 million back in January 2013.
The deal was based on the Qatari Royal family's desire to get on American airwaves by assuming Current's distribution deals with cable and satellite TV providers. Unfortunately for al-Jazeera, few Americans are all that interested in watching Jihad-TV's version of jihadi propagandized news, so the ratings have been a dismal failure and advertising revenues are way down.
Gore and Hyatt's Their lawyer essentially believes that al-Jazeera are seeking to give themselves a discount, seeing how things have turned out.
This is the same person who told Jon Stewart how proud he was of selling to jihadi financing Qatar and how Jihad-TV was "..going to really be a positive addition to the U.S. media landscape."
Poor,poor Al Gore. What's the use of selling out to America's enemies if they don't even pay you for it?
