Late Wednesday, Brian Stelter with the New York Times broke the news that Al Jazeera would be acquiring progressive cable news network Current TV. Al Jazeera had been seeking entry into the U.S. market, and the deal will allow them to put their own programming on in place of Current on televisions across the country. But the Wall Street Journal has uncovered an interesting piece of information: Glenn Beck and TheBlaze TV tried to purchase the network and were rejected.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has announced plans to launch a 24-hour Arabic-language news channel in partnership with Rupert Murdoch's Fox network.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, former editor in chief of Alwatan newspaper and a media adviser to Prince Turki Al-Faisal at Saudi embassies in London and Washington D.C., will head the station.

Prince Alwaleed's new channel will compete for Arab viewers with well-established networks Al Arabiya and Al Jazeera. He did not name the channel, which will build a network of Arab correspondents.

Will Al Jareza use women in Bhurkas to report the news? If so, I'll stick with the blonde bombshells that Fox uses.

Too bad Keith Olbermann doesn't still work for Current TV.

Keith's often public contempt for those he works for vs. Progressives general cowardice in confronting Muslims about anything would make for riveting drama!

Every day we would see in his face the conflict of one dying to lash out yet restrained by the code of Progressivism!

Who am I kidding, he'd just take out his frustrations on the limo driver like he usually does.........
