The liberal media love Former Vice President Al Gore, the politician turned climate “crusader.” So much so that one of the biggest media companies in the nation — Viacom — is throwing its massive weight behind his new movie. That means Viacom’s “approximately 700 million global subscribers” will be inundated with global warming propaganda to prop up Gore’s Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which was already being distributed by Viacom’s Paramount brand. Expect the $14-billion company’s other outlets like MTV, VH1, CMT, BET, Comedy Central, Spike and even Nickelodeon to heat up your cable box pushing the flawed documentary and climate alarmism.
Former Vice President-turned-global warming activist Al Gore has been making his media rounds this week to promote his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel (which is of course the sequel to An Inconvenient Truth.) Monday night he appeared on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show, where the severely anti-Trump host spent nearly the entire interview asking about the president.
In a fawning two-part interview with former Vice President Al Gore on Monday’s NBC Today, fill-in co-host Willie Geist sympathized with the Democrat’s alarmist environmental crusade and promoted his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. However, absent from the conversation was any mention of the numerous errors, inaccuracies, and false predictions made in Gore’s first documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.
Al Gore, “movie star.” That’s what CBS national correspondent Lee Cowan thinks. Acting like a fanboy instead of a professional journalist, Cowan told former Vice President Al Gore, “You’re a movie star, in many respects.”
Al Gore was just one of the climate alarmists to link a recent iceberg calving to “the climate crisis.” The Guardian blamed climate change even before the massive iceberg A-68 broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf.
Gore tweeted “The Larsen C ice shelf has broken away from Antarctica, a jarring reminder of why we must solve the climate crisis” on July 12. Scientists studying the ice shelf said the opposite.
Are the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians "unprecedented," as Democrats charge? Liberal journalists would like everyone to forget the Clintons and the Democratic National Committee engaged in a blatant strategy to solicit illegal foreign contributions from Asian sources before the 1996 election. Their contacts included Liu Chaoying, daughter of the senior commander of Red China’s “People’s Liberation Army,” who met with President Clinton.
On Thursday, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would be withdrawing from the Paris climate change accord, much to the chagrin of the ‘chicken little’ liberal media who declared the apocalypse was upon us. CNN’s normally mild-mannered host Jake Tapper was visibly distraught during Sunday’s State of the Union when he was railing against U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for how the U.S. now looked to the rest of the world. But when spoke with climate alarmist/hypocrite Al Gore he was at peace.
From drunken driving and Titanic sinking comparisons, to complaints about the impact on “racial justice,” liberals lost it when President Donald Trump officially announced the U.S. would quit the Paris Climate Accord.
The president held a press conference on June 1, saying the nation would walk away from the deal, but he was open to renegotiating a “fair” deal which would not harm the U.S. economy and result in job losses for American workers.
Using a tired line he’s been recycling since at least 2003, former vice president Al Gore criticized the media’s coverage of climate change — for not blaming it enough.
"Every night on the news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation," Al Gore said on May 6, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He had been asked about how the news media reports the issue. Gore said he would "wait for the newscasters to connect the dots," but claimed they rarely do.
On Friday (appearing in Saturday's print edition), the New York Times published its first column by Bret Stephens, the former Wall Street Journal columnist recently hired as a "conservative" voice. Its theme was that the political "hyperbole" about climate change doesn't match the underlying science — even if one trusts the underlying science. That alone was enough to send journalists into unhinged and often profane orbit.
Critics gave former Vice President Al Gore grief for predicting in An Inconvenient Truth that major cities including lower Manhattan would be underwater if severe ice melt occurred. Now Gore is rewriting history to claim his prediction came true in order to promote his upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which debuted at Sundance on Jan. 19.
In this case, context is the difference between honesty and self-interested revisionism.
Former Vice President Al Gore still has admirers among the media, if the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter is any guide.
Timed to the Sundance Film Festival opening night premiere of Gore’s Inconvenient Truth sequel, Gore sits regally perched on a stool on the cover of THR’s Jan. 27, issue.
Tatiana Siegel’s cover story dripped with adulation for Gore’s “optimism” and environmentalism, and was entirely devoid of criticism of him or his films. There was no mention of the errors or failed predictions in the An Inconvenient Truth, no charges of hypocrisy for flying around the world to show a slideshow instead of using videoconferencing or some other technology, and no reminder that the planet managed to survive beyond Gore’s “point of no return.”
