The staffers at Current TV are reportedly very unhappy with Al Gore over the sale of the network to Al Jazeera.
Current, which Gore helped found, was sold to Al Jazeera on Wednesday...
Current staffers had their first meeting with their new bosses on Monday. Gore was not there, but "the displeasure with Gore among the staff was thick enough to cut with a scimitar," The New York Post's Linda Stasi reported.
She spoke to one staffer who lashed out at Gore and called him a "bullshitter."
"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 bullshittter sells to the emir?" the staff member said.
"Al was always lecturing us about green. He kept his word about green all right—as in cold, hard cash!" the staffer added.
(Editor's note: Letters left out of the expletives for mainstream publication were restored.)Poor Al. He is simply misunderstood. When he talked about a "green agenda," he was talking about exploiting a made up environmental crisis in order to put more green in his pocket. In related news, the profit Gore made off of the sale of his network has now pushed his net worth ahead of Mitt Romney. See it pays to be green.
