Al "Log! Log! Log!" Gore finally ready to close on NWI

From Wonkette:

A Wonkette operative tells us that Al Gore plans to annouce at
noon CST today that he and partner Joel Hyatt have successfully
acquired the Newsworld International cable channel from Vivendi. Gore
will make news of the sale to his company, "IndTV" (clever!), public at
the annual convention of the National Association of Broadcasters
[I'm an idiot. That was last week.] National Association of Cable &
Telecommunications. The content of channel will not change, says our
operative, "They bought a full-functioning network. . . they're
probably gradually going to change it." (Well, someone's learned something from Air America...)
No word on what'll happen (realistically) to some of the "better" NWI programming (DW's European Journal & CBC's The National among others).

NWI is available on digital cable systems nationally as well as on DirecTV (Channel 366).
