Al Jazeera is the only free press in large parts of the world, and compares favorably to most US channels on non-bias and free speech grounds. I expect Al Gore aims to act according to the greater good, not according to a simplistic complete boycott of a product that he, and the rest of us, use every day.
Sure it's called reporting. But why wouldn't he have sent them to ABC? CBS? NBC? He had the means. There was recently a reporter who was hired by them and subsequently left because he discovered they were Anti-American. Sorry but that does matter.
The same reason the unibomber sent his manifesto to the New York Times. Because they were local.
And do you have a link for the other claim? As I have mentioned, AJ has been identified by reputable awarding agencies as one of the top 5 stations in the world for lack of bias. I doubt they are more anti-American than Fox is anti-middle easterner.
I did listen to the whole thing and probably won't bother following such recommendations in the future because it said none of the things you claimed. So all I learned was that you might have an issure correctly extracting information from primary sources.
Did the ex employee say AJ is anti-American? No, he explicitly said no when asked if this was the case. He said he left because the desk he was on became less autonomous and they produced material that had the wrong editorial tone for Washington and did not "meet his standards".
He also mentioned that Murdoch sold Fox newscore to a wealthy Saudi (oil money).
The only person in this entire clip who claimed AJ was anti-American was OReilly who has no direct experience with AJ and is, frankly, a fruit loop (so this claim appears not "on CNN" but on a clip they showed of, you guessed it, Fox news.)
