Al Gore Sued Over Current TV Sale to Al Jazeera

Al Gore makes the point that Al Jazeera's climate change coverage has been outstanding. 

Wish we could say the same about the, presumably not owned by the oil industry, U.S. networks:
Current TV's $500 million sale to Al Jazeera has prompted a lawsuit that claims co-founder Al Gore originally was opposed to the deal but had a "change of heart" on selling his cable network to oil-rich Qataris.
 Terenzio is suing for breach of implied agreement, unjust enrichment and quantum meruit ("what one has earned"). He's seeking $5 million for each cause of action
