Here’s one casualty of low oil prices: Al Jazeera America is shutting down. It seems the Qatar government has run out of cash to support its
propaganda news organization here in the U.S.
Nobody is really going to notice because nobody really watched it anyway.
The channel struggled from the beginning to garner meaningful viewership and stand out in a crowded American media market. It averaged an abysmal 30,000 viewers in prime-time spots and sometimes a zero rating in the key 25-54 demographic.
The winner here? Believe it or not, Al Gore, who received a half billion for the network in August 2013.
Now the job of bashing Israel and defending radical Islam falls completely to CNN.
