Didn’t want to wear a burqa?
Via Detroit Free Press:
Ex-Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm says the sale of the cable network Current TV means her “fun adventure” hosting a public affairs show will soon be over.
Granholm said she will be leaving her program, “The War Room,” following the purchase of Current TV by Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab news giant financed by the government of Qatar.
“We were told today that Al Jazeera is the buyer for Current TV,” Granholm said in a posting on her Facebook page late Wednesday.
“My agreement with Current was for the duration of the election (and the sale). It has been a very fun adventure; we are blessed with a wonderful team. We’ll continue to broadcast ‘The War Room’ for the next few weeks through the transition, but after that I’ll be going back to teaching, speaking and other things.”
The sale was announced Wednesday for the cable network founded by former Vice President Al Gore and other partners. The network has struggled with low ratings.
