Between Monday and Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell devoted two segments on her afternoon show to giving an unchallenged forum to environmental activists promoting the preferred liberal view that global warming is caused by humans and is making hurricane seasons worse, as Democratic Governor Jerry Brown appeared on Monday's show and former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday.
On Saturday morning, CBS and NBC both ran predictable reports arguing that human activity is causing global warming, which is causing hurricanes like Florence to be worse, while those who are skeptical are derided as "climate change deniers." By contrast, global warming skeptic Joe Bastardi appeared on both Friday's Fox News at Night and Thursday's Hannity show on FNC. He argued that, while it is true that climate has always undergone change, past hurricane seasons have actually been worse than those in recent decades, as he doubted that humans are making a significant impact on the climate.
Given what we now know about Matt Lauer and his creepy office with an automatic door lock, this August 21, 2000 Today interview with Al Gore looks weirder in retrospect. Lauer repeatedly obsessed over “the kiss” between the then-Vice President and his then-wife Tipper Gore at the 2000 Democratic National Convention: “This is the ‘The Kiss.’... You really planted one on Mrs. Gore.” Lauer was interested in the kiss. VERY interested.
Professor Stephen Hawking passed away overnight and CBS on Wednesday felt the need to connect Al Gore to the science icon. CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King linked, “The tributes are pouring in this morning to legendary scientist Stephen Hawking who died overnight at the age of 76. One internet pioneer, that’s also known as Al Gore, said Hawking had ‘a colossal mind and wonderful spirit.’”
The last 12 months haven’t been kind to movies with a left-of-center agenda. Hollywood had a lousy 2017 in toto, of course. Summer box office receipts hit their lowest mark in more than a decade. Credit The Last Jedi and It for making up some of the lost coin in the year’s waning months.
Liberal media bias has existed for years, but in 2017, it appeared to reach unprecedented levels given the media’s hostility to President Donald Trump. The media distorted many stories in 2017, in many different ways. They ranged from lies such as Al Gore’s claim that “Superstorm Sandy” proved a global warming prediction from An Inconvenient Truth was true, to using Big Bird to mislead about public broadcasting budget cuts.
The numbers don't lie. Across the entertainment industry, viewers and fans are tuning out. It's no coincidence ratings are cratering as unhinged celebrities crank up their anti-Trump and anti-American antics. Pro tip, Tinseltownies: Swapping your jazz hands for middle fingers and waving resistance fists at your customer base is bad for business. Let us count the waning ways.
Al Gore's latest climate change film couldn't draw a crowd. Here's why. Few films receive the avalanche of positive press An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power enjoyed. Reporters uncritically shared Al Gore’s climate change mantra in virtually every media outlet. They treated his return to the big screen like a major event. Shoving skepticism aside, the articles cried it’s the movie we need now .. more … than …ever.
Climate alarmist Al Gore’s second film, An Inconvenient Sequel, failed to heat up the box-office, falling from 16th to 18th over the Aug. 11-13 weekend. It’s a dramatic fall from glory for the climate alarmist whose first film, An Inconvenient Truth, won several awards including an Oscar and grossed $24 million.
Buried in the credits of An Inconvenient Sequel, former vice president Al Gore and filmmakers make it clear they paid to make up for carbon generated during production. That’s part of Gore’s greenwashing of his documentaries through purchases of carbon offsets from Native Energy.
Former Vice President-turned-climate change activist Al Gore was given another opportunity by CNN this weekend to shame skeptics of his climate change propaganda as backwards bigots. Just last week when the network hosted a town hall with Gore, where he compared the fight against climate change to a matter of “right and wrong,” much like the Civil Rights Movement.
The country’s top film critics are in love with the liberal agenda of Al Gore’s new Inconvenient Sequel, gushing at the "Shakespearean" Gore “saving the world” “one lecture at a time." The global warming film has more of a “meh” response overall. It’s at 67 percent on Metacritic and 75 at Rotten Tomatoes, but Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times, among others, are fans.
