Jay Leno on Friday took a delicious swipe at Al Gore’s decision to sell Current TV to Al Jazeera.
Chatting with Current’s Joy Behar, the NBC Tonight Show host asked, “Osama bin Laden is your new boss?” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Behar responded, “Current TV was bought by Al Jazeera, yes. To me it's like Al Gore, Al Jazeera, Al Pacino. It's all the same thing to me.”
“I just work there,” Behar continued. “I'm learning Farsi, you know.”
“So much for Jews controlling the media,” quipped Leno.
“Not anymore,” added Behar.
“I heard Glenn Beck tried to buy Current TV,” Leno continued.
“Yes,” replied Behar. “That would have been a nightmare.”
“Which would have been worse, Al Jazeera or Glenn Beck for you?” Leno asked.
“I think Al Jazeera,” answered Behar possibly not understanding the question. “That would be like, you know, let's say David Letterman bought NBC. How would you like it?”
She’s a national treasure, isn’t she?
