That Al Gore's 2000 presidential candidacy was treated unconscionably by most members of the mainstream media is not really arguable by sentient beings. The very idea that a candidate like George W. Bush extremist, incompetent, unprepared for office, addicted to cronyism and incapable of admitting even the simplest human error could have been held by so many reporters to be a better choice for President than the two-time Vice President, Senator, Representative and environment and nuclear weapons expert, to say nothing of his central role in the Clinton Administration's successful two-term presidency, would be laughable were its consequences less tragic.
Yes, it REALLY says that.
I guess I was out of the country when the media were attacking Al Gore and supporting George Bush.
Eric Alterman is actually a staunch conservative with a wry and extremely biting sense of sarcastic humor....This whole piece is really a put-on.
I laughed so hard that I needed to clean the vomit off my screen.
Revisionist history at it’s best!!
