Al Jazeera America Shutting Down … Flashback: Hillary Clinton, ‘Viewership Of Al Jazeera Is Going Up In The United States’
IMAGINE THAT, AL JAZEERA AMERICA FAILED IN AMERICA, GOING THE WAY OF THE DO DO …
The Al Jazeera America will be closing up shop by April 30, 2016. The channel launched in early 2o13 and hit the airwaves in August 2013 after the purchase of Al Gore’s Current TV. That was a story unto itself when Al “Mr. Global Warming” Gore sold True TV to Al Jazeera, a media entity which was funded mostly by the government of Qatar, which is of course gets most of its money from oil. No hypocrisy there now, is there? As stated at the Daily Caller, Al Jazeera America is shutting down after less than two-and-a-half years of operation, a victim of tanking oil prices that left its owners unable to finance the virtually-unwatched cable channel.Al Jazeera, which made a massive investment in covering the United States less than three years ago, is slamming the brakes on its American operation.
Al Jazeera America, a cable news channel that debuted in August 2013, is shutting down. Employees were informed of the decision during an all-hands staff meeting on Wednesday afternoon.
During the meeting, Al Jazeera America brass said the channel’s business model was “no longer sustainable.” It will shut down by April 30, an Al Jazeera America executive told staff, saying the decision was made by the channel’s board of directors and was not a reflection of the quality of their work.
Employees also were told that Al Jazeera will pursue a new global online strategy with content delivered from the U.S. later this year.
Remember when Hillary praised Al Jazeera News and Al “global warming” Gore Sold his news network to an oil producing country?
Remember when Hillary Clinton called it real news? As secretary of state in 2011 Hillary Clinton touted Al Jazeera as a “really effective” news network with viewership that was “going up in the United States.” More from the Politico on the death of Al Jazeera America.
The Qatar-based Arab-language broadcaster Al Jazeera created an American channel two-and-a-half years ago in a bid to bring its brand to U.S. audiences that were increasingly being exposed to global media.
Al Jazeera made a mission of doing in-depth, enterprising reportage that would eschew what it saw as the frenetic, soundbite-heavy character of U.S. cable news.
But the channel failed to build up a substantial viewership here, and was available only in about 60 million American homes, compared with roughly 100 million households that have cable TV. Its ratings, which approached 28,000 viewers in primetime in 2015 and 19,000 viewers in total day, according to Nielsen, were paltry compared to the big-three cable news channels.
Al Jazeera bought its way into the U.S. market for a reported $500 million in January 2013 when it acquired Current TV, the struggling news channel co-founded by Al Gore in 2005, and took over its slot on the cable dial.
HMM, GORE’S NORTH POLE ICE FREE IN 5 YEARS … MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH.
As Barack Obama tries to cram his global warming agenda nonsense down our throats, Remember in 2008 when Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be ice free within 5 years? How is that working for the North Polar Ice Cap these days? Last time I checked it was still there and growing. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
The below VIDEO was more of the Goracle spewing his BS from 20019 … Here is a bit of an inconvenient truth for Al Gore … ITS STILL THERE!!!
All these lies of so-called settled science by those global warming extremists with an agenda and they are still pushing this man made global warming nonsense even after the Goracles predictions have been embarrassing disproved.

Hey Al Gore … Columbia, SC Experienced Earliest Snow in 125 years of Weather Records Yesterday on Halloween Night
MORE GLOBAL WARMING BABY …
Last night on All Hallows’ Eve, Columbia, South Carolina experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records. According to Accuweather, wet snow and slush brought down trees and power lines around Greenville, South Carolina as of early Saturday morning. Snow was reported as far south as Columbia, South Carolina, making it the earliest snowfall on record. What say you Al Gore? What are the odds that Gore and the rest of the global warming settled science crowd will blame this on climate change as well?
Columbia, SC has just experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records, beating the Nov. 9, 1913 earliest snow record by 8 days. Current South Carolina weather shows it’s still snowing in Greenville, SC.
The Christian Science Monitor is reporting Greenville was especially hard hit with downed trees and power outages. The Smokey Mtns received up to 16 inches overnight. The current U.S. snow cover map shows 18 states with some amount of snow this morning.
Saturday morning, a record early-in-season snow coated parts of South Carolina to usher in the month of November.
Snow was observed as far south and east as Columbia, the earliest flakes on record in the city, occurring less than three days after a string of four straight days in the mid-upper 80s. Sleet was reported just northwest of Charleston, South Carolina.
A couple inches of snow coated grassy areas and some roads near Greenville and Pelion, South Carolina. Power lines were downed in Greenville, Greenwood, and Lexington Counties due to the combination of strong winds and wet snow accumulations.
Up to six inches of snow was reported around Asheville, North Carolina while 2.5 inches was measured in Boone, North Carolina. Seven inches was measured near Marshall, North Carolina (2280′ elevation). Up to 3 inches blanketed Bluefield, West Virginia.
Mt. LeConte, Tennessee (6400′ elevation) measured 22 inches of snow, with waist-deep drifts. Numerous roads were shut down in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including U.S. 441. Trees were “cracking and popping” due to the weight of almost 13 inches of snow near Hartford, Tennessee (3400′ elevation).
