Newsworld Gore’d

As speculated, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has bought Newsworld, the international network once owned by the CBC. Although the Mother Corp. will continue to provide the content, the purchase continues the politicalization of the American broadcast media. Like the country itself, it seems the U.S. media is splitting along so-called left and right lines (or liberal-conservative, or Democratic-Republican) with the common ground held, surprisingly, by the Big Three plus CNN.
