Group will protest leftist bias outside CNN Hollywood on Saturday, Feb 16th.Rage Against the Media put on a demonstration outside an L.A. appearance of Al Gore to discuss his new book, The Future. Rage was protesting the former Democrat presidential candidate's complicity in providing Al Jazeera full-time channel carriage into American households through selling his liberal current affairs channel, Current TV, to the the Qatari monarchy for an American version of Al Jazeera.
Rage protested the professed-environmentalist, Mr. Gore's facilitating the advocacy of Persian Gulf, petrol interests via Al Jazeera's biases.

The Blaze has more details about the shariah-influenced, Al Jazeera's acquisition of the liberal, environmentally-conscious Current TV.
Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America ("CAMERA") director, Ms. Andrea Levin cited for USA Today, a specific example when speaking of one of Al Jazeera Arabic's most popular programs- called “Sharia and Life.”
Earlier this January, TheBlaze covered Al-Qaradawi and his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Jazeera.
A representative for Al Jazeera told Reuters that nine operators will carry the new channel, the largest being Comcast, DirecTV, Dish, ATandT, and Verizon. Time Warner, who carries Current, is taking a wait and see approach for the time being.
Organizer of Rage Against the Media, Karen Siegemund, appealed to the lecture attendees and the TV viewing public to contact their pay TV company and encourage them to not bring Al Jazeera into their households, or risk cancellation of their account.
