Al Jazeera Ratings Makes MSNBC Look Like a Juggernaut: Yes, it’s THAT Bad

If you recall, Glenn Beck wanted to buy Current TV, Al Gore’s failed TV Network, but was told that it didn’t match their values.  However, selling it to a Muslim network, Al Jazeera, was just fine.  And, what has Al Jazeera done?  Almost worse than nothing, if ratings are going to be your judge… Al Jazeera America, which had hoped to challenge the major cable news networks, is falling on its face, based on last week’s ratings, in which some shows didn’t record a single viewer in the key 25-54 demographic. The network, which was purchased from Al Gore in […]

Al Jazeera and Current TV, Two Bitter Tastes That Go Great Together!

As we had reported, the Goracle’s befuddled TV network, Current TV was in serious financial trouble, and the investors were looking for a buyer.  It appears that they have already found one, in the name of Al Jazeera.  Newsbusters has more… The following is an excerpt from Stelter’s online January 2, New York Times article: Al Jazeera is finalizing a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago. If the deal is completed, Current will provide the pan-Arab news giant with something it has sought for years: […]

Manhattan Infidel Presents: A Sampling of This Year’s Christmas Specials

Here at the headquarters of Manhattan Infidel our mission statement mentions our pride in disseminating the latest in culture.  And what says culture more than a cheap made for TV movie?  The mission statement also mentions I am lactose-intolerant.  Yet I also love to eat pizza with extra cheese.  While eating ice cream.  And practicing auto-eroticism.  And drinking milk.  And now with the Christmas holiday behind us it is time to review this year’s top Christmas-themed specials.  And please, lay off the cheese.  I have a sensitive digestive tract. Unlike the innocent Christmas specials of the past which featured singers […]

Current TV up for Sale: Anyone Want to Buy Yet Another Failed Liberal News Outlet?

In a completely shocking and utter unpredictable turn of events, it appears that Current TV, Al Gore’s attempt at a news network propaganda outlet, hasn’t worked out so well, and is now up for sale.  For the rest of the sad news, here is more from Michelle Malkin. Current TV may soon beon the market for any buyer looking to further validate Thomas Tusser: Current TV, the ratings-challenged cable network started by former Vice President Al Gore, has put itself up for sale, The Post has learned. “Current has been approached many times by media companies interested in acquiring our company,” CEO Joel Hyatt […]

Current TV to be Dropped by Time Warner Due to Low Ratings?

Our lefty friends are having a rough month.  The “war on women” meme fell flat.  The economy continues to stagnate, and gas prices continue to creep upward.  And like a tired fighter, the administration keeps trying to throw clumsy hay-makers, and most often miss their opposition.  One of the recent piles of fail involves Keith Olberamnn and Current TV.  Olbermann was fired by the network for refusing to play nice, and I guess the smelly, talkative limo drivers were just too much for poor Keith to bear.  But, that’s not the end of the woes for Current TV, because, even though ubermoron drew some […]

Keith Olbermann Fired: Still Can’t Play well with Others? UPDATED: Olbermann’s Response

It seems that Keith Olbermann is having a very hard time holding a job.  After less than a year on Current TV, Olbermann was let go by the network.  The Blaze has more… “We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet. We are more committed to those goals today than ever before,” network co-founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt wrote in a letter to viewers. “Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no […]

olbermann-and-baghdad-bobbig

It seems that Olbermann can’t keep an audience anywhere.  I guess that’s some douche-nozzle karma happening.  For the coverage, here is an excerpt from the NY Daily News… After debuting to promising ratings on the Current cable network in late June, Olbermann’s political commentary show posted its lowest numbers yet the week of Sept 5-11. Nielsen figures provided by industry sources also show that, based on weekly averages of the program’s performance on Current, “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” has never done better than its debut week on Al Gore‘s hard-to-find cable network. (It did come close on Aug. 30, racking up […]
