CNN.com Inadvertently Reveals Al Gore's Email Address
Web Newser ^ | June 1, 2010 | Alex Weprin

Posted on 06/01/2010 1:22:42 PM PDT by Beaten Valve

When it comes to emails, mistakes happen all the time. But very rarely do they involve former Vice Presidents of the United States.

So it was quite surprising to see CNN.com inadvertently reveal the email address of Al and Tipper Gore Tuesday afternoon.

"Our intention was to keep the email address confidential, and CNN corrected the online post as soon as we discovered the error," a CNN spokesperson told WebNewser.

So what happened? CNN.com today posted a story about Al and Tipper Gore's separation. The story included a link to a PDF of the email the Gores sent to friends. While the email address was blacked out in the PDF, clicking on the black bar opened the user's preferred email client, revealing the address used to send the note.

As the spokesperson noted, CNN has since changed the article to remove the offending PDF, but it was still online for nearly two hours, likely attracting thousands of clicks.

The email is pictured below, with the email address dutifully obscured, even when you click on it. See how easy it is guys?

Funny, how they are concerned with the posting, not with these colluding bastards having it in such common circulation that they didn’t notice when they put it out to the unwashed.

If it was a PDF just copy and paste to a text file allows reading of the redacted words. Like the Blago SUBPOENA PDF.

So someone hacks a VP candidate’s personal email account, and they are commended, but when a VP ‘s personal email address is displayed, there is panic and an apology?

Oh, I get it, one is a good guy, and one is a bad girl (in their worldview). Is it me, or is everything backwards?

right so it’s fully intentional then, because that’s no longer going to be a relevant email address

no... you’ve got it right.

there are at least 2 sides. conservatives and progressives... and the press, expecting some of FOXNEWS, is on the side of progressives. therefore, they bash their political enemies while providing political cover for their allies.

Coooool.
Could somebody please provide Al Gore’s email to some Nigerians who can help him develop a new income stream now that “carbon credits” are worthless?
