    what’s the point? Al Jazeera wants to be nice to the president before they take over?

    Al Gore won’t be available. The event is very traumatic to him and his followers.

    The Al Jazerra version of the inauguration? Yeah, won’t be watching that one, but I won’t be watching ANY of the inauguration or “crowning” ceremony for the king commie.

    The Terrorist network’s eco branch is covering the inauguration? Oh goodie! Just be sure to wear some deodorant to viewing parties.

    As for Al Gore, he should spend his new “big oil” money to buy an island or two.

    I’ve never heard of ANY of the CurrentTV Al-Jazerra staff except for Cenk. The name David Shuster rings a bell. Can’t remember if he was the guy with Wayne of Wayne & Shuster fame. lol

    It’s not like they need to offer new content… just air the same programming they’ve been doing since the “relaunch”: keep reairing the same 5 episodes of 4 series (no other episodes, just the same ones) repeatedly around 12 hours of informercials all week until the new network wants to take over. A couple of engineers, a handful of security guards, and maybe a manager to sign for deliveries or sell office furniture before the last day. Easy money.
