There's been lots of interesting science news – for example, Neil Armstrong has apparently lied to us when he was saying that he invented the "one small step for man" line on the Moon. He had been thinking about it for quite some time, his brother recently told the BBC, and he was even collecting feedback e.g. from his brother.
I am sure that most readers follow the news, especially those related to science. But this news is kind of special:
Current TV is dead; long live Al Jazeera TV U.S. Al Gore has shown his pride that his failed product could have been sold at all – and moreover, to a company located in a region that gave the world a climate alarmist who was even more famous than Al Gore himself, namely Osama bin Laden, before he was neutralized by Al Gore's former ally, Barack Obama.
Let me admit that this "marriage" doesn't sound surprising to me at all. Al Jazeera has always been driving me up the wall. It's a kind of an Arab station but it's clearly not a typical Arab station reflecting the Arab culture and the medieval traditions that are still hot in the Arab world. Instead, Al Jazeera tries to resemble the Western stations – and what it takes from the Western stations is the most shameful and disgusting part of the contemporary Western lifestyle, namely some kind of a generalized political correctness.
