Al Jazeera buys US channel Current TV

Al Jazeera Media Network has announced that it has acquired US cable channel Current TV.

The Qatar-based network said on Thursday that with the acquisition it plans to create Al Jazeera America, a US-based news channel. Al Jazeera’s coverage will soon be available in more than 40 million US households, up from 4.7 million prior to the deal.

Terms were undisclosed, but analysts told the Reuters news agency the deal could be worth an estimated $500m. The new channel will be headquartered in New York City.

In addition to the existing Al Jazeera news bureaus in New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Miami and Chicago, Al Jazeera will open additional bureaus in key locations across the United States. It will also double its US-based staff to more than 300 employees.

The deal brings Al Jazeera into closer competition with American news channels like CNN, MSNBC and Fox. The award-winning channel is seen in more than 260 million homes in 130 countries, but has had limited access to US markets.

Glenn Beck’s New Year’s Resolution: Anyone Who Mentions President’s Name Will Be Fired
Shortly after President Barack Obama won re-election last month, NewsOne compiled the often ridiculous — and always dramatic — reactions of Republicans. Now you can add Glenn Beck‘s name to that list, after he announced this week that his New Year’s resolution involved firing anyone who mentioned the President’s name on his show.

Bitter much?

After coming back from his 18-day vacation, Beck told his co-hosts that there would be consequences for anyone on his show that mentioned President Obama’s name, “Anybody who brings him up, besides me, is fired.”

Incredulous, co-host Stu Burguiere replied, “I hope I have some immunity here if I say this incorrectly, but can we say, ‘The President did blah, blah, blah. The President said….’”

To which Beck responded that he would evaluate statements on a “case-by-case basis.” Beck then informed his colleagues that audio of Obama’s voice was also barred, with Burguiere saying, “Now we can’t play his audio…but I think we have to say [the President’s name].
