Al Gore’s Current TV getting out while the getting is good

Al Gore’s Current TV, launched only 7 years ago as a source of all things … Gore-ish, is now up for sale.

Apparently they had no end of speakers and presenters for Gore-type content, but in viewership or for those wanting to support that content…

Current TV CEO Joel Hyatt as quoted by the New York Post… “Current has been approached many times by media companies interested in acquiring our company. This year alone, we have had three inquiries. As a consequence, we thought it might be useful to engage expertise to help us evaluate our strategic options.”

MSNBC rejects seemed to end up at this station.  Take Keith Olbermann.  His appearance was supposed to save the day, instead Olbermann began to insult the hand feeding him calling them “amateur hour”.

Other hosts were: “Joy Behar: Say Anything!,” “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer,” and “The War Room with Jennifer Granholm.”

According to this article’s source, ratings for these shows were “dwarfed by those earned by Dukes of Hazard re-runs.”
