I am actually wondering what in the world is going on. First Daschle, now Gore. Haven’t these guys heard of CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, etc? Pay attention to Gore’s words; they must have been carefully selected. Especially note his use of the term "fifth column." It is possible that Gore is not serious, that he’s just ticked off because his books are not selling and his poll numbers look bad. This is what is called whining.
"The media is kind of weird these days on
politics, and there are some major
institutional voices that are, truthfully
speaking, part and parcel of the Republican Party," said Mr.
Gore in an interview with The Observer. "Fox News Network,
The Washington Times, Rush Limbaugh—there’s a bunch of them, and some of
them are financed by wealthy ultra-conservative billionaires who make political
deals with Republican administrations and the rest of the media …. Most of the
media [has] been slow to recognize the pervasive impact of this fifth column in their
ranks—that is, day after day, injecting the daily Republican talking points into the
definition of what’s objective as stated by the news media as a whole."
