    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In 2008, Al Gore strode onto the stage at Denver's Invesco Field to a hero's welcome, throwing his support behind Barack Obama to take on the "global climate crisis." When Obama takes the stage this week, Gore will be nowhere in sight. He isn't coming to the Democratic National Convention but is spending the week in New York City, anchoring coverage of the event for his network Current TV. [SNIP] While many Democrats in Charlotte were reluctant to talk about Gore for attribution, some said Gore's diminished profile — and the environmental movement's more broadly — is...

    <p>Citing what he called "arrogance, willfulness and bungling" by President Bush in his foreign policy, Al Gore yesterday blamed flawed policies for the abuse of Iraqi prisoners and said six administration officials should resign because of the Iraq situation.</p> <p>In a fiery speech at New York University -- sponsored by the political action committee of the liberal group MoveOn.org -- the former vice president called for the resignations of Defense Secretary Donald H.

    Al Gore has charged that the Bush administration is attempting to cover-up the 9/11 investigation by dismissing the Senate Intelligence Committee. In a speech sponsored by the Communist Group Moveon.org, Gore dismissed the partisan Democrat memo advising the committee to use intelligence information for political purposes as "trivial", and accused Bush of over-reaching in his authority, in much the same way as Richard Nixon did when he fired his Chief Investigator during the Watergate scandal. It was reported here that Senator Frist disbanded the Senate Intellignce Committee after the partisan memo revealed it would be unable to carry out its...

    Look out, Rupert, here comes … Al? Since deciding not to make another race for the White House in 2004, former Vice President Al Gore has been devoting considerable time to another dream, one he shares with many Democrats these days — creating a media enterprise that could challenge the dominance of conservative voices in cable television and talk radio. Numerous sources in Hollywood and Washington tell TIME that Gore has been quietly sounding out potential financial backers for a cable television network that would feature "progressive" viewpoints. Additionally, Gore has helped arrange meetings between key Hollywood figures and a...

    (3/31/03, 7 a.m. ET) -- The Dixie Chicks controversy continues with the trio getting some support from former Vice President Al Gore. Gore spoke to a college audience last week on the subject of fewer companies owning more media outlets, and what he sees as the increasing lack of tolerance for opposing views. According to the Tennessean, Gore used recent attacks on the Dixie Chicks that followed anti-war comments by Natalie Maines as an example. Gore told the audience, "They were made to feel un-American and risked economic retaliation because of what was said. Our democracy has taken a hit,"...

For one, the national news media now can safely tuck away its...

    NEW YORK, Dec 15, 2002 (AP Online via COMTEX) -- Al and Tipper Gore may have logged TV's longest screen embrace during their opening bit on "Saturday Night Live." Reunited in an NBC corridor after a few painful moments apart, the Gore lovebirds went into a clench while cast member Jimmy Fallon and executive producer Lorne Michaels looked on uneasily. "Maybe we should get them to stop," Fallon said, moments before someone zapped the former vice president with a stun gun. Total smooch time: 2 1-2 minutes. Gore included the "Saturday Night Live" host gig in his monthlong television...
