Anyone know what is going on with Current TV?

What happened to their evening news shows?
They seem to be on earlier but they are not in their usual time slots.
All they are showing is reruns of Vanguard (good, but I've seen them all) and Miami Dade Vice or some such crap.

Anyone have the skinny?

2. It's pretty wierd.

TYT doesn't repeat at all and the War Room is at 2am.
Hell Viewpoint is at 5am.

I'm not fond of the SWAT shit at all.
Watching militarized police running around acting like the thugs they are arresting.
COPs on steroids.

Blech.

3. I had such great hopes for Current when they hired Keith Olbermann

However, I read the details of the lawsuit Olbermann filed Current. Of course it still has to be determined who did what in a court of law, I was very disappointed that Al Gore did not intervened earlier, when Keith and Joel Hyatt were battling out their differences.

I remember that he (Hyatt) was the owner of a law firm that got sued for firing a man with AIDS. I was surprised that Al Gore would go into business with him and according to what I read about the case. he was mostly responsible for the problem that occurred when he took over running the show.

5. I was hugely disappointed with the situation with Keith.

But Current's lineup was solid so I kept watching.
I had some hope that Keith would come back.
Alas, I have little hope of that.

If Current keeps their new schedule I'll have to start watching MSNBC again.

Hope they won't sell to a PUKE corporation.

13. That's what I'm afraid of! Probably Time Warner trying to gobble up another "network". nt

8. I only watch Bill Press and Stephanie Miller usually...

 

The Young Turks can be informative, but it seems like Cenk tries too hard to be pissed off at Obama and the Dems all the time.

9. Well, I Don't Know The Skinny But...

I never miss Cenk or Stephanie Miller. I have no idea what the back story is concerning Keith. I guess I need to do some research.

I really like Current. It is a far more entertaining than FSTV or LINK.

We need more of this kind of programming.

Oh yeah... Don't confuse Cenk's passion for anger.

11. I was so happy to have Steph back since I couldn't get her on the radio anymore.

I will be upset if Current pulls all its news programs and just goes back to the documentaries.

I've noticed with Steph's program though they keep messing around. They said they were going to run her twice a day, and then pulled back.

Several months back they said they were going to repeat the third hour and then after a week that stopped.

Then in October/November they said they were going to run all three hours again right after the live broadcast quit, and they did it for like two days and then quit.

Now they are messing with their primetime lineup. It doesn't seem like this is a good thing.

If it goes off I will miss Stephanie's and Governor Granholm's shows the most.

12. I was a Current fan from day one...by the time Keith came around, I was on my

last legs with Current. They fire everyone I like there. Again and again. Keith's departure was just the last straw for me.
