Current situation: Staffers talk about first meeting with Al Jazeera


#1

Yesterday morning, the still shell shocked staff at Current TV was called to an all hands staff meeting at its San Francisco headquarters, which was teleconferenced to their offices in LA and NYC, to meet their new bosses.

That would be two of Al Jazeera’s top guys: Ehab Al Shihabi, executive director of international operations, and Muftah AlSuwaidan, general manager of the London bureau.

Ominously missing was the creator of Current, the self proclaimed inventor of the Internet and savior of clean energy, Al Gore, although his partner, Joel Hyatt, stood proudly with the Al Jazeera honchos.

AL Gore has shown that he does not even believe his hype about the environment. His home uses more electricity than many others. He jets around the country and the world. Now he sells this station to a country that produces oil.

Al Gore buys green power through a green switch buy program that off sets any carbon produced to power his home.

Sorry. Just that he seems to be used a lot on this forum as the herald of environmentalism. That’s all I was saying
