Qatar is one of those oil producing OPEC nations.
It seems that some of the “true believers” on the Current TV staff, who are all being fired, are a bit miffed over this.
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…
“Of course Al didn’t show up,” said one high placed Current staffer. “He has no credibility.
“He’s supposed to be the face of clean energy and just sold [the channel] to very big oil, the emir of Qatar! Current never even took big oil advertising—and Al Gore, that bulls***ter sells to the emir?”…
“We do stories on the tax code, and he sells the network before the tax code kicked in?”
To quote Allahpundit: “Oh, the schadenfreude.” Perhaps now Algore can afford yet another giant, energy guzzling, mansion.
