    managerial, business or marketing skill at all. It was a toy for him, he wanted to do news, but he didn't have the scope to build a foundation to support it and make the whole thing work. It's too bad, Vanguard was very good, it just wasn't enough to build a network around.

    •  it was always about (0+ / 0-)

      making CurrentTV a 'for sale' media ; when Gore says he is doing something business - wise he paints it as populism to attract attention, buzz, get his activities covered in the press etc  (it is a head fake) read up on Gore's investments throughout lifetime especially when Congressman and Senator after that as V.P. he made his business contacts explode with interest in his unseen financial positions; as V.P. he cultivated the financial field  from his position on the world stage for growth of personal financial interests....

      maybe I'm seeing  him in too narrow spectrum of light yeah right! anyway Gore is about money and image period end of story; he is a manipulator being a politician was his vehicle to launch personal business activities and it was always that;

      Hyatt-Gore that's what their long partnership is about:
