ABC Reporter Raves Over Gore Film, Compares Gore to Shakespeare and Dante
newsbusters.org ^ | 5/20/06 | Tim Graham

Posted on 05/20/2006 5:54:52 AM PDT by beyond the sea

In recent months, ABC reporter Bill Blakemore has been a passionate proponent for getting all that harmful objectivity and balance out of reporting on the impending disaster of global warming. So it shouldn't be surprising -- it should flow naturally, like a melting glacier -- that Blakemore is using ABC's World Newser blog to plug Al Gore's new documentary "An Inconvenient Truth." The filmmakers could use Blakemore's review here as a promotional blurb. He calls it "96 minutes well spent," says "Regardless of your politics, it's riveting and informative," not to mention "remarkably clear, concise, and informative."

LOL.

"The Divine Comedy is a narrative poem describing Dante’s imaginary journey. Midway on his journey through life, Dante realizes he has taken the wrong path."

....... fitting.

ROFL.

I'm surprised Al could put a movie together. You'd think he'd be too busy all the time in the bathroom after all his iced tea.

One good reason to get right with God: "An Inconvenient Truth" is going to be running regularly on the HBO Hell feed.

Someone should ask the genius Gore, and the reporter for that matter, where the glaciers that covered most of north American went...

And if we'd all be better off if they were still here...

It isn't just Fluoride ABC has in their water.

They must be thinking of someone else.

When has Algore done ANYTHING "remarkably clear, concise, and informative"????

These things are just not a part of the Algore personna; never were, never could be, never will be.

He's a foaming lunatic; like a chamelion, subject to change color without notice. The only thing that remains the same is the form of the lizard.

"Regardless of your politics, it's riveting and informative," not to mention "remarkably clear, concise, and informative. Too bad it's 100% fiction."

The inconvenient truth is they left the last part of that sentence off..

Gore invented Shakespeare, shortly after he invented Dante and Hell.

I once defended two popular feminist authors: Kingsolver and Isabel Allende on the grounds that YES, they wrote well. Content is predictable; but they write well.

No, I don't plan to see Gore's new movie: It'll be another "it writes well" but content zill. I've better use for my time and income.

Last I heard Al Gore is living in San Francisco. No doubts, the flick will hit the tops in the charts, there.

This whole "presents/reads well but content zill" puts me in mind of prostitution: Sure, she can deliver the job, but the content is meaningless: the buzz without the fulfillment.

It sounds like it's worth seeing. I'll certainly try.

Of course, it's a popularization. The science is not going to be decided by any film, or - unfortunately - by reason. On really big issues, where big money and fundamental behavior changes are involved, people do not listen to reason.

Either, climate will change radically in the next 20 to 50 years, killing tens or hundreds of millions. Or it won't.

It's clear humanity isn't going to support any actions which will lessen the amounts of greenhouse gases and other pollutants we're pouring into the atmosphere or take real steps to reduce population sizes.

I can see the connection between Al Gore's film and the writings of Dante.

It's entirely appropriate, and possibly a service to the community, to display Dante's words from The Divine Comedy as a warning over the entrance of every theater desperate enough to screen An Inconvenient Truth.

“Abandon hope, all ye who enter here."

After reading his screed Mind Our of Balance, I've had enough environmental cliches to last a lifetime. I don't need the movie version.

Wonder how much oil he burned flying to his screenings?

Just watched the trailer. Sets up with Algore on stage telling a fawning audience "I was once the next president of the United States." Lots of Day After Tomorrow stuff accompanied by the expected orchestral crescendo. My favorite was the footage of Katrina and the question "Did the planet betray us, or did we betray the planet?"

Inquiring minds want to know.

He made comparisons to Shakespeare there as well. To 'Henry V', if I recall correctly:

No way will I support algore for anything. This so-called movie is not only propaganda, but also a campaign speech for his 2008 presidential run, IMHO.
