Gore warms up to Hayes: This generation’s Charles Ponzi refers to MSNBC host as ‘this generation’s Edward R. Murrow’

I’ll give Al Gore credit for one thing, he’s very adept at helping a lot of people release their laughter chakras:

Somebody must have helped the Goracle ring the cash register recently.
Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters has more details:
Why was Hayes bestowed such an “honor” Friday?
Because he spent an hour talking about how a naturally occurring, vital to life gas known as carbon dioxide is destroying the planet.
As such, and not surprisingly, in Gore’s view, a man presenting junk science on television is the new Edward R. Murrow.
Just how poor was the “science” Hayes presented?
To begin with, like so many of his colleagues in the media, he failed to actually explain what the theory of anthropogenic global warming is.
For instance, when did this so-called warming start, how much hotter has it gotten, and how much has atmospheric carbon dioxide actually risen during that period?
Hayes did mention that we currently have about 400 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere.
However, he failed to inform his viewers that roughly three percent of that 400 ppm is manmade. The rest is naturally produced.
Read the rest here to find out what was conveniently absent from the report by “this generation’s Edward R. Murrow” (would Murrow have tagged George Wallace a Republican?). Also, we can be reasonably certain Hayes didn’t call out Gore’s incredible hypocrisy for selling out to Big Foreign Oil or Gore wouldn’t have been so quick to hand out the Murrow award.
According to Sheppard, Hayes’ show on global warming didn’t include on a single skeptic, which qualifies as “integrity” in reporting, as far as Gore is concerned. Even though Murrow himself used to say “there are two sides to every story,” the person who presented only one side of the story is now “this generation’s Edward R. Murrow.” But coming from this generation’s Charles Ponzi, that doesn’t mean a heck of a lot.
