The Hollywood Reporter says Stewart “grills” Al Gore. It’s not quite a grilling, but Gore’s defense of Qatar and Al Jazeera is quite amusing as Stewart keeps coming back to the sale.
Gore also tries to claim Current didn’t have deep pockets, which just isn’t true. Current counted Comcast and DirecTV as shareholders and it would have had “deep pockets” if its business model hadn’t failed, which caused Current to pull its IPO.
Gore also kept saying the new Al Jazeera/Current won’t have commercials. How is that going to work?
