All we need is anti- American news. Can't believe it is allowed. What next for this country? Nothing surprises me anymore.

"It spent $500 million in January to buy Al Gore’s Current TV channel." Anyone know how much money Al Gore has in the Caymans????

brianjapan - All we need is anti- American news. Can't believe it is allowed. ---------- Eh. FAUX news has been doing it for years. Truth be told, Al Jazeera will probably be more honest.
