Glenn Beck: Al Gore Would Not Even Let Me Make an Offer to Buy Current TV

Last night on The O'Reilly Factor, Bill talked with radio host Glenn Beck about his brief bid to try to buy Current TV from former Vice President Al Gore. The left-wing network was eventually sold to Arab broadcaster Al Jazeera for $500 million.

Beck said he believed Current was only worth about half that number and called Gore's representatives to inquire about making an offer. He said Gore would not even entertain the idea of letting him make an offer for the network.

"They called us back and they said, 'The Vice President has a reputation and under no circumstance will he ever entertain an offer from Glenn Beck,'" he explained. O'Reilly asked Beck how he felt about being held in a lower regard than a network that "glorified Usama bin Laden."

"It's a badge of honor that I am more loathsome, that I am not anywhere close to his agenda, close to his values, because Al Jazeera is closer," said Beck.

"I do absolutely believe that he is more in line with Al Jazeera than he is with anything that I would preach. American exceptionalism, American common sense, responsibility, hard work [...] I think he thinks I am much more dangerous than Al Jazeera. He's that insane."
