Al Gore’s Current TV is creating some very good content, but its efforts to generated user generated video has faltered and monthly unique visitors are only 152,000 per month.

Nonetheless, one investor in Current, Los Angeles magnate Ronald W. Bunkle, is quoted in today’s New York Times stating Current has a valuation of $2 billion.

Good reporting by new media beat reporter Brian Stelter.  I happened to interview Brian last week. He told me about his amazing journey from college blogger to staff New York Times reporter. He also offers advice on successful blogging.  Don’t miss this one.  My interview is posted above.  You can grab the code here.
