    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGaHiWDZRNY"]YouTube - Preview: 'The Factor' Confronts Al Gore[/ame]

    Watch how fast Al Gore tries to get out of there! :lol:

    Remember before when Al Gore tried to bully anyone who didn't agree with him, with his "consensus" BS and calling them "deniers" like they were holocaust deniers? :lol:

    Now he's left with running away from people who ask questions. Al Gore is such a pompous fraud.

    Ya, but he invented the internet. :rolleyes:

    That little scam made the man a lot of money and fooled a lot of people. He is probably praying for gobal warming now to save his reputation. Personally, I think a little global warming would be a good thing.

    I didn't get too much out of that. It was a good imitation of Michael Moore on part of the "journalist" or whatever he was. I don't care if you're on the far left or far right, the smart thing IS to get out of such a situation as fast as possible, particularly when you don't trust how your comments will be edited.

    O'Reilly has a history of sending his minions out to do that kind of "interview".

    The only scam in the Al Gore/Internet issue is the claim that Al Gore said that he invented the Internet.

    Al Gore did not claim that he invented the Internet, nor did he say anything that could reasonably be interpreted in that fashion. The "Al Gore invented the Internet" put-downs were intentionally misleading, out-of-context distortions of something Gore said during a Wolf Blitzer interview on CNN's "Late Edition" on March 9, 1999. When asked to describe what distinguished him from his challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey, Gore said:

    While his phrasing may have been a little clumsy, clearly Al Gore was not claiming he "invented" the Internet but rather that he was responsible, in an economic and legislative sense, for fostering the development of the technology that produced what we now know as the Internet.

    Much of what I have written here was taken directly from the following link:

    snopes.com: Al Gore Invented the Internet

    Of course, the Right immediately seized upon this comment and mischaracterized it in an attempt to discredit Al Gore - an attempt that has succeeded quite well. The fact remains that he never said this.
