Gore’s Roar, The Revenge: They Get E-Mails

6 comments January 16th, 2006at 03:28pm Posted by Eli

Here’s my e-mail to CNN, for all the good it will do:

I hope you will be covering Al Gore’s speech today, and that you give it more than a 15-second soundbite and a “that wacky Al Gore” shake of the head in between shark attacks and Aruba updates. A former vice president accusing a sitting president of criminality and incompetence, and the Congress and media of abdicating their responsibilities, should be big news in any universe.

Assuming that you do have some talking-head point-counterpoint analysis, I implore you to provide genuine representation for the liberal/Democrat point of view. I know it’s tempting to trot out Joe Lieberman to stick a knife in his old running-mate’s back, but please don’t do it. If you must put “sensible” faux-liberals like Lieberman or Richard Cohen or Joe Klein up there to tut-tut about how “Al Gore is a fine man, but History has passed him by, and he is treading dangerously close to treason by not supporting the President in this time of peril,” at least give some real liberals like Dean or Clark or Krugman an opportunity to rebut them.

This is very important, powerful material, and it is your duty to give it a fair hearing. I dare you.

Here goes nothin’.

    That’s the great thing about nothin’. It goes and goes. But if you get enough nothin’s in one place it seems to amount to somethin’.
