Ever hear of CurrentTV? Me neither. They are some new age small cable company that solicits “user-generated” content; in other words, it’s like YouTube TV, under the guise of “truly participatory citizen-journalism”. Al Gore loaned the company $1 million at start-up
Anyway, here’s the interesting part: they paid Al Gore over $600,000 in salary last year, plus a $550,000 bonus. He has $48 million in stock. Their parent company, Current Media, is looking to raise $100 million in an IPO it filed. Some of the cash would go to pay off lenders. The IPO will also help make Gore, who sits on the board of Apple and is a senior adviser to Google, millions.
Al Gore is pretty savvy for an end-of-the-world prophet, eh? It sure is amazing how much The Prophet is making in profit from his panic rants and ramblings.
I used to like this man. I really felt sorry for him when the election was stolen from him. But that was then, and now is now.
