“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department

Phelim Talks Journalistic Ethics With Neil Cavuto

Phelim took the Society of Environmental Journalists to task Monday in a Fox News appearance on Neil Cavuto's "Your World." He blasted the leaders of the group for defending Al Gore's right to dodge inconvenient questions about the nine lies in his movie An Inconvenient Truth.

"Al Gore not answering questions is normal," Phelim said, but journalists should know better than to aid and abet his evasiveness.

"Environmental journalists unfortunately tend to be environmentalists rather than journalists," he added. "They have never found an environmental organization that's ever exaggerated, that's ever told a lie, and there is. ... I want environmental journalists to actually ask them difficult questions. It's not an awful request."

Phelim started the day with an appearance on "Fox & Friends." "Sadly, at the moment journalists seem to think that their job is to protect people in power ... and shut down the journalist," he said.

If these liberal geeks can not tell you what the weather is going to be like tomorrow how can they tell me there is global warming? Boy ol boy Al Gore and these far left winng tree huggin liberals are making alot of money on Americans when we are in a recession what a crying shame. Its sad that they feel like they can not let a crisis go to waste in the USA.
