Glenn Beck has a following. He could actually bring some viewers to the channel. Only the anti American left will watch Al jeezera, and they will lose interest after awhile.

Whats going to be interesting is what going to happen to Cenk Uygur. He is an apostate from Islam(He has stated on air he does not believe in any religion)) and according to Islamic law the penalty for that is Death..
But the very fact liberals have no trouble with him calling his program Young Turk Television shows their double standard.The Young Turks for those who do not know where a Turkish Political faction that gave Hitler his Idea to commit genocide, but I guess since the Millions the Young Turks killed where Christians, the liberals have no problem with that.

Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal owns a 7 percent stake in News Corp — the parent company of Fox News — making him the largest shareholder outside the family of News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch set to back Blair - for a place in his boardroom
29 July 2006 http://tinyurl.com/gxm7x
The media magnate Rupert Murdoch is expected to offer Tony Blair a senior role in his News Corporation empire when he stands down as Prime Minister.
Allies of Mr Blair insist he has made no decisions about his plans when he leaves Downing Street -- almost certainly next year. But some friends say a seat on the board of News Corp could tempt the outgoing Prime Minister, as it would dovetail neatly with the lucrative United States lecture circuit. Mr Blair's popularity at home may be waning, but he remains big box office in America. His close relationship with Mr Murdoch will be highlighted tomorrow when he addresses the annual gathering of News Corp's executives and senior journalists from around the world.

Former Spanish PM to join Murdoch board
June 22, 2006 http://tinyurl.com/2ylrzl
Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation yesterday recruited one of the most senior statesmen involved in the Iraq war, the former Spanish prime minister José Maria Aznar, as a board member.
The 53-year-old former politician backed the US and British governments over the invasion of Iraq three years ago despite widespread opposition in Spain. His party was voted out of power after his government blamed the 2004 Madrid bombings on Basque separatists when Islamic extremists had in fact committed the atrocities in which 191 people died. http://business.guardian.co.uk/story/0,,18029...

You strange, pathetic little fleabagger, Beck offered under $ 200 million, god you're ignorant and stupid.
Do you even understand your own comments?

I just asked a simple question.

Beck wanted to buy the same station.

An angry, mentally chahellenged teabagger is a typical Beck viewer.

The Middle East is pretty smart. They know on Middle Eastern television Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000 election. Katherine Harris and family cost him Florida by a handful of votes. Voter fraud everywhere in Florida 2000 Presidential election. The U.S. Supreme Court decided 2000 Presidential election. NATO election officials observed 2012 election in the United States ensuring the American people got the President they voted for. Some states refused to allow them to observe. Bad southern hospitality. A thousand pardons NATO.

Let's see if everyone who voted for Gore in 2000 watched his Current TV why did it fail? Because he din't get enough voters to keep it afloat. I tried to watch it a couple times. Boring, nonsense, and silly little people all impressed with themselves. It was laughable.

You and I both know the whole system is corrupt and both Republicans and Democrats like it that way.

Fox News and MSNBC are both corporate hack talking air heads loyal to these two corrupt parties.

Most Republicans are conservative in name only.

Most Democrats are liberal in name only.

Obamacare is not a liberal health plan which would have provided Single Payer, Medicare For All.

Obamacare is more accurately Romneycare which was endorsed by Bob Dole and the Heritage Foundation back in the 1990s.

Obama/Clinton, Bush/Cheney John Kerry, John McCain, et cetera are all corporate hacks loyal to Wall Street.

They have to divide and conquer our ignorant masses.

You can't, you mean, because it's completely bogus. If the evidence were easy to obtain and convincing, you'd post it.

Why keep lying? I've NEVER seen you post the truth, ever.

1. Eradicate the Bush tax cuts for the rich and institute new taxes on the wealthiest Americans and on corporations, including a tax on all trading on Wall Street (where they currently pay 0%).

2. Assess a penalty tax on any corporation that moves American jobs to other countries when that company is already making profits in America. Our jobs are the most important national treasure and they cannot be removed from the country simply because someone wants to make more money.

3. Require that all Americans pay the same Social Security tax on all of their earnings (normally, the middle class pays about 6% of their income to Social Security; someone making $1 million a year pays about 0.6%(or 90% less than the average person). This law would simply make the rich pay what everyone else pays.

4. Reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act, placing serious regulations on how business is conducted by Wall Street and the banks.

5. Investigate the Crash of 2008, and bring to justice those who committed any crimes.

6. Reorder our nation's spending priorities (including the ending of all foreign wars and their cost of over $2 billion a week). This will re-open libraries, reinstate band and art and civics classes in our schools, fix our roads and bridges and infrastructure, wire the entire country for 21st century internet, and support scientific research that improves our lives.

7. Join the rest of the free world and create a single-payer, free and universal health care system that covers all Americans all of the time.

8. Immediately reduce carbon emissions that are destroying the planet and discover ways to live without the oil that will be depleted and gone by the end of this century.

9. Require corporations with more than 10,000 employees to restructure their board of directors so that 50% of its members are elected by the company’s workers. We can never have a real democracy as long as most people have no say in what happens at the place they spend most of their time: their job.(For any U.S. businesspeople freaking out at this idea because you think workers can't run a successful company: Germany has a law like this and it has helped to make Germany the world’s leading manufacturing exporter.)

10. We, the people, must pass three constitutional amendments that will go a long way toward fixing the core problems we now have. These include:

a) A constitutional amendment that fixes our broken electoral system by 1) completely removing campaign contributions from the political process; 2) requiring all elections to be publicly financed; 3) moving election day to the weekend to increase voter turnout; 4) making all Americans registered voters at the moment of their birth; 5) banning computerized voting and requiring that all elections take place on paper ballots.

b) A constitutional amendment declaring that corporations are not people and do not have the constitutional rights of citizens. This amendment should also state that the interests of the general public and society must always come before the interests of corporations.

c) A constitutional amendment that will act as a "second bill of rights" as proposed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt: that every American has a human right to employment, to health care, to a free and full education, to breathe clean air, drink clean water and eat safe food, and to be cared for with dignity and respect in their old age.
