Muslim Brotherhood propaganda network Al Jazeera America, which began only 2 1/2 years ago, ironically, after climate huckster Al Gore netted a reported $100 million of Middle East oil money for the sale of then failing Current TV. Incidentally, Gore chose to sell Current TV to the Muslim network, which is funded by the country of Qatar’s oil money, rather than sell it to conservative media mogul Glenn Beck.
On Wednesday, the Associated Press announced that the Arab network will be calling it quits after April 30:
BREAKING: Cable news network Al Jazeera America says it is shutting down just 2 1/2 years after its launch.
— The Associated Press (@AP) January 13, 2016
The reaction to Al Jazeera’s closing it’s doors was met with snark and humor on social media, with some speculating that perhaps the timing of the announcement came with the recent tabloid story about Peyton Manning being accused by the Arab network of taking steroids.
Others were amazed that they were able to survive this long:
@AP In other news, Al Jazeera America was a real thing for this long.

An “AJ” fan who expressed sadness of the death of Al Jazeera was responded to with much-deserved ridicule:
The news of the leftist network failing should be seen as a major victory — the pro-Islamist network could not survive in the marketplace and no one had to shut them down.
Now when the America-haters at MSNBC pull the plug, that will be even a bigger cause for celebration.
