What is NBC doing airing dozens of hours of Al Gore's Live Earth concerts this coming weekend? And why are the Fairness Doctrine proponents of the Democrat Party not objecting to this outright gift of unequal time to just one side of a controversial issue?
Plus this whole deal about the planet melting. Gore is the left's guy, and he plays to his base.
So what's NBC doing giving Gore so many hours of airtime on NBC owned and operated television operations? Does this constitute a political contribution of free airtime? Do the people who want the return of the Fairness Doctrine think NBC should be forced to give equal time to me and let me argue against Al Gore?
If there is one thing the people at FOX News understand it's political propaganda and unbalanced, free coverage. Pleeeze.
More strange reaction:
“This isn’t just a big wet kiss to Al Gore and his left-wing agenda, it’s a shameless acknowledgement of NBC’s bias," Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said in a statement. " 'Live Earth' is nothing more than a photo opportunity, but this concert’s ‘historic’ status is wholly exaggerated by all the hours and hours of free publicity.
“They might as well re-name it 'Gorestock 2007.' It’s tough to deny what comes from the horse’s mouth. NBC is a self-proclaimed liberal cheerleader.”
Concerts are scheduled for East Rutherford, N.J.; London; Johannesburg, South Africa; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Shanghai, China; Tokyo; Sydney, Australia; and Hamburg, Germany. A band of scientists will perform in Antarctica.
When CTV bombarded us with the Diana anniversary concert, did that equate to monarchist apologists? The sad reality, NBC is clearly devoting so much free time because of the all-star lineup, more than the actual cause itself- and really wasn't this Gore's strategy all along? The problem, the wingers are attempting to derail the focus from the issue to a referendum on Gore himself. However, in the end, it can't be a bad thing that this concert will get maximum exposure in a country that is clearly saddled by dangerous ignorance. If it makes the right-wing go batshit, all the better :)
