Cable News Talks Current TV Sale

The sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera has also been making waves on competing cable news channels. On Fox News, the bulk of the coverage has been anti-Al Gore and anti Al Jazeera, while CNN took a more analytical approach.

On “The O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly dedicated his “Talking Points” to Gore “The Hypocrite,” for trying to sell the network by December 31 in order to take advantage of tax rates.


“On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren took a similar approach (watch here), as did “Fox & Friends” this morning.

CNN hosted Brian Stelter, who broke the story of the sale, and Howard Kurtz, to analyze the move.
