    I don't think al-Jazeera is interested in becoming the next CNN. Their reputation is for hard-hitting (if at times a bit sensationalistic) news programming.

    Anyway - won't this purchase require FCC approval because al-Jazeera is foreign-owned?

      We were told today that Al Jazeera is the buyer for Current TV. My agreement with Current was for the duration of the election (and the sale). It has been a very fun adventure; we are blessed with a wonderful team. We'll continue to broadcast The War Room for the next few weeks through the transition, but after that I'll be going back to teaching, speaking and other things. Thanks to all of you who have been watching, and especially thanks to those who helped achieve a key goal: helping to re-elect the president!
