Despite anonymous accusation, Al Gore paid new high tax rate in sale of Current TV

Despite Bill O'reilly, Newbusters, Washington Times and a DU'er slamming Al Gore based on an allegation by anonymous sources that Al Gore sought to sell Current TV before taxes went up, the sale was finalized after the tax hike occurred. a Washington Post writer sarcastically writes, "perhaps Gore, a 20 percent stakeholder in the property, secretly dragged his heels so as to incur higher rates!"

Gore will never ceased to be smeared by the right (and at times, some in the "left").

That is a scandal or there is something that hurts Gore because somehow it counterdicts him they are full of it

My grip with Gore is that current programming wasn't consistent, thus it had issues

It would be nice if Al Jazeera actually created a good model that informed
