"Gore then attacked the news media directly, saying that 'part of the challenge the news media has had in covering this story is the old habit of taking the 'on the one hand, on the other hand' approach. There are still people who believe that the earth is flat. But when you're reporting on a story like the one you're covering today, where you have people all around the world, you don't search out for someone who still believes the earth is flat and give them equal time.'"

Great point, binky.

Kinda like portraying GWB as a no-nonsense decider when in fact he's your run of the mill village idiot.

JPW---Great stuff today, but you have insulted us run-of-the-mill village idiots. Saw Percy Sledge at Jazzfest either this year or last. Embarrassing giant wig.
