Fox News host Bill O’Reilly did not beat around the bush when expressing his disgust over the hypocrisy displayed by Al Gore when he reportedly rushed to finalize the sale of Current TV before the “fiscal cliff” deadline on Monday in order to avoid paying higher taxes on his capital gains in 2013. O’Reilly wasn’t really thrilled that Gore chose to do business with the “anti-Americans” at Al Jazeera either.
To show just how hypocritical the move was, O’Reilly aired a clip of Gore saying he thinks the rich, including himself, need to “do our fair share.” That, of course, is the same rhetoric that comes out of the Obama administration and the left constantly.
And what did O’Reilly have to say about Al Jazeera? He called it an “anti-American network out of Qatar that recently ran a documentary sympathetic to Osama bin Laden.”
The host went on to say that he does not want to censor Al Jazeera in any way, but the move by Gore was “sleazy” and “disgraceful” nonetheless. And though O’Reilly didn’t mention it, TheBlaze also approached Current about buying the channel but executives were blown off because of ideological differences between the two networks. Al Jazeera was determined to be a better fit.
Just in case the New York Times, who first reported that Gore wanted to avoid higher taxes, was incorrect in its reporting, O’Reilly offered Gore all the time he needs to set the record straight on his show. He went on to say that he doubts the green energy mogul would ever actually appear on “The Factor.”
“Because we have problems with hypocrites in the ‘no spin zone,’ and Al well knows it,” he added.
