CBS This Morning on Tuesday played up how Mitt Romney's campaign had to conduct "a little more damage control" after the GOP presidential candidate held an event at a popular Miami establishment owned by a convict. Correspondent Jan Crawford highlighted how "Romney held an event yesterday at a well-known restaurant in Miami whose owner - get this - pleaded guilty to cocaine distribution in 1999, and was sentenced to three years in prison."

The program was the only Big Three morning newscast on Tuesday to report on the story. By contrast, CBS found it completely un-newsworthy when the other networks mentioned in October 1996 that convicted cocaine smuggler Jorge Cabrera had gained access to Al Gore and Hillary Clinton in 1995 after making a $20,000 donation to the Democrats. Why report this and omit that?



Al Gore has had quite a varied career since coming within 537 pregnant chads of the presidency in 2000. He has sat on the board of directors of Apple, shilled carbon credit indulgences to guilty liberals, and starred in "An Inconvenient Truth" documentary.  There is even a wild rumor that Gore has written movie reviews.  However the latest news about Al Gore concerns his Current TV which is like a public access channel for has-been politicians. According to this story, Gore has consulted his inner chakra and has decided to become a convention reporter. This has resulted in some interesting media reactions to this news but the funniest is probably this wry observation from Jonah Goldberg of National Review who tweeted:

If Al Gore's career trajectory keeps up he'll be a blogger-intern at Media Matters by the end of the decade.



Comedienne Joy Behar is starting to realize that nobody knows or cares about the perilously liberal cable network she starts working for in September.

Promoting her soon to begin show on Al Gore's failing channel, Behar commented via Twitter Tuesday, "Current is like the g-spot of TV":



While it's nice that the 2000 election cycle made a fool out of Al Gore for his outrageous claim that "I took the initiative in creating the Internet" -- which was in due course shortened by critics to a claim that he invented the Internet -- it's more than a little annoying that an accompanying myth emerged and has long persisted that the Internet was created by the government.

President Obama repeated this supposedly established wisdom during his infamous "You didn't build that" speech" on July 13 in Roanoke, Virginia: "The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet." Geez, even I know that the original purpose of the Internet had nothing to do with companies making money. But at the Wall Street Journal on Sunday evening, L. Gordon Crovitz took a deep dive into the actual history, and -- Surprise! (not) -- the government wasn't the Internet's creator, or its enabler, but was instead a barrier:



"Gun control advocates sputter at their own impotence."

Such was the shocking opening sentence of a piece published by the Associated Press moments ago addressing the political aftermath of the tragic shootings at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.



In the past several weeks as much of the nation suffered under a massive heatwave, global warming-obsessed media depicted the high temperatures as evidence of Nobel laureate Al Gore's favorite money-making scam.

A new study published in the journal Nature Sunday completely debunks all previous claims that temperatures in recent decades are in any way historic demonstrating instead that things were much hotter on this planet during Roman times:



For 20 years, the United Nations has warned that humanity will soon face doom if it fails to adopt “sustainable development” policies and protect the earth’s environment. However, U.N. officials seem to think the rules they seek to establish for everyone else are not applicable to them, as their behavior at environmental conferences shows.

A much-hyped 1992 environmental conference in Rio produced a plan called “Agenda 21” which detailed a strategy to promote sustainability. Like many other U.N. initiatives, Agenda 21 has proven to be all talk and no action.



Comedienne Joy Behar made a truly revolting observation Thursday about gay Republican group GOProud's endorsement of Mitt Romney for president.

Substitute-hosting for Eliot Spitzer on Al Gore's Current TV, Behar asked her gay guests, "Could it be that the GOProud guys are just attracted to Mitt Romney's sons?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):



Whenever Barack Obama has gone on ABC's The View, he's been gushed and fawned over like a rock star.

Despite this, Joy Behar Tuesday, while filling in for Eliot Spitzer on Al Gore's farce of a network Current TV, actually whined to her guests, "I haven't seen any indication that [Mitt Romney] is coming on The View" (video follows with transcript and commentary):



Joy Behar asked a question Tuesday evening guaranteed to make conservatives across the fruited plain laugh uncontrollably.

Substitute-hosting for Eliot Spitzer on Al Gore's television network nobody knows exists let alone watches, the comedienne hysterically asked author Thomas Frank, "Where are the lefties besides on Current TV?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):



Update: A similar letter was sent to Comcast Chairman Brian L. Roberts | Editor's Note: What follows is NewsBusters publisher Brent Bozell's June 13 open letter to Current TV chairman Al Gore.

The Star-Spangled Banner evokes feelings of pride and patriotism in most Americans. But not in Bill Press, who slurred our National Anthem as an "abomination."

The Current TV host hates the National Anthem so much that he is "embarrassed" every time he hears it.



Al Gore's Current TV is quickly becoming the place where liberal commentators that fail go where they truly belong - somewhere virtually no one will ever see them.

In a press release published by TVNewser, it was revealed the next addition to Gore's deliciously irrelevant network is Joy Behar who just in November was canned by HLN for horrid ratings:
