Comments: Al Gore's Current will replace Newsworld International on 8/1

I can't believe you watch the CBC on purpose! Maybe we could switch channel line ups.

Gotta see what the other side does -- besides, when they're not pontificating, "The National" is actually a half-way decent newsmagazine.

Maybe they will show Futurama - the best thing to come of Al Gore (I think his daughter or neice or something worked on that show). His guest spots are some of the best stuff he has ever done in all his years of "public service."

I think he should leave politics and do voice-acting. He is pretty good at that. Wasn't very good at the former anyways.

Hooray! Hooray Gore!

The main reason I bought DirecTV was to get OLN for the Tour de France and to get better INTERNATIONAL news. I don't need more talking heads on TV, more myopic, moronic American centric programming that have the audacity to say they program "news" shows. I want news from OUTSIDE the US, I want alternative perspectives, I want Deutsche Welle on my television. I LIKE The National and Peter Mansbridge, I LIKE Bill Cunningham and his insightful stories. ARRRGGGHHHHH !!! Now what do we get? BLIPVERTS is right. I hope those executives explode.

Time to move to a new satellite provider.

I think the newsworld international to be unique and necessary, especially to the American audience, who get only the news that American news channels consider not to be unpatriotic.
It is so refreshing to hear the perspective of other countries' views of world events.
For a long time I thought how much better Al Gore would have been as president. Now I think he should be put in a locked box with the key thrown away. Ruth Beazer

I paid extra to receive NWI on Comcast cable. Now, at least I can reduce my cable bill. Maybe I wasn't giving current.tv a chance, but after a week of some of the most banal programming I'd ever seen, I just wonder if it wasn't a way of limiting what news the American public gets. I'm disappointed in Al Gore.
