Tubby Eco-Charlatan Stuck In Past

The cutting edge

That overweight Oscar winning greenhouse gas emission previously known as the "artist" who blew one of the easiest US Presidential elections ever, has just launched a new pay-TV station:

"Current TV network, claims it is the first example of "television for the internet generation". Gore says the new service, which relies on viewer-created content for more than a third of its schedule, marks a media revolution that would prove as pivotal as the invention of the printing press.

Current TV, which launched yesterday on the Sky and Virgin Media pay-TV platforms, is aimed at the 18- to 34-year-olds increasingly turning to the net, mobile phones and a myriad of digital channels to complement mainstream media habits."

Er... Al... mate... the internet generation is called that because it spends its life on the web, not watching TV. That's like, the past.

If you want to see the future, you need to look at something called You Tube. Or 18 Doughty Street's about-to-be-launched citizen journalism service.

And it's especially surprising coming from you, because iirc, you invented the internet (OK, you then claimed you didn't).

PS The first night's viewing on Al's channel featured such pivotal content as a vid of a man having sex in cars. In the name of God, I hope it wasn't fatboy himself.
