Skip to comments.ABC Reporter Raves Over Gore Film, Compares Gore to Shakespeare and Dante
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."

sorry, I'm teasing. It lost 98-0 or 96-2 or something like that. Don't know where he stood at the time, but he can always claim he was taking a bathroom break.
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.
As in stark raving?
Words fail me. Shakespearian? (Gaggggggg)
Oscar for AlGore. Wonderful. And why not? He'd be right at home in Hollyweird.
The closest Al will to to Shakespeare is this.....

Anyone know what this critic's review was for Brokeback Mountain?
I understand they're already planning the sequel - called "Community Outreach."

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.
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."
Dante? Goodness, maybe Gore will go to hell.
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?
Pray for W and Our Troops
Inquiring minds want to know.
Between ABC and NYSlimes, it's hard to tell who is more despicable in their so called 'reporting'.
Another problem with the left is that they too often heap high praise on the mediocre.
