So the ongoing hypocrisy of Al Gore adds a new chapter: Current TV has been sold to Al-Jazeera and Al Gore makes $100 million. James Taranto nails Gore for profiting from global warming:

Oh, and Al Jazeera is based in Qatar, which means Al Gore, the scourge of global warming, is almost certainly lining his pockets with fossil-fuel profits.

And what's more, it appears that Glenn Beck tried to buy Current TV but was refused for ideological reasons.

The Wall Street Journal caught the detail in its coverage: "Glenn Beck's The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that 'the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,' according to a person familiar with the negotiations."

So I guess we can conclude that Al Gore's point of view is aligned with that of Al-Jazeera.
