But who's the one taking money from dictators...?
An Al Jazeera mouthpiece calls Ezra Levant's new venture, TheRebel.media, "very pitiful."
He'll take that as a compliment, considering the source: Al Jazeera is owned by an investment arm of the dictatorship of Qatar.
Ezra was joking around about his makeshift TV studio -- his living room -- but Al Jazeera's Megan O'Toole didn't find that funny, humble or even inspirational.
Fans of TheRebel.media did, though, and voiced their support of Ezra's entrepreneurial spirit on Twitter.
As of Thursday, TheRebel.media was working out of a downtown office. But O'Toole was still working for an OPEC dictatorship.
