Al Gore’s new Current TV network seeks to be "the television home page for the Internet generation," the former vice-president said. With its debut today, Current TV seeks to be a more hip and cutting-edge form of presenting the news. "I think the reality of the network will speak for itself," Gore told reporters. "It’s not intended to be partisan in any way and not intended to be ideological."

Sure thing Mr. Gore. Of course a network you are debuting will be bipartisan, fair, and balanced?
