    to another typical Americanized media-hack outfit toeing the corporate line on all aspects of the national news. And even less so an international news agency that parrots corporate talking points 24/7.

    Let's face it, the U.S. market is already saturated with corporate sycophants and glorified stenographers. The former vice president knows that. He screwed up with Current but he's not a stupid businessman. And his heart remains in reality -- or in other words -- the liberal slant on the news.

    I'm remaining agnostic on AL-Jazeera for now. But will give them a very fair viewing before reaching any final conclusions. We desperately need an international perspective to the news here.

    AL-Jazeera got a bum rap during the shrub regime, and that negative public perception has continued throughout the Obama administration.

    Maybe that will change now.
