By Not Evil Just Wrong
The Society of Environmental Journalists spent much of their conference in Madison, Wisconsin questioning why mainstream journalism was dying. Then they answered their own question when they decided it was their role to protect Al Gore from An Inconvenient Question.
Phelim McAleer, the director of Not Evil Just Wrong, asked Al Gore about the British Court Case which found his documentary An Inconvenient Truth had nine significant errors. McAleer said that given his documentary is being shown in schools – does he accept the errors and has he done anything to correct them?
McAleer said that given his documentary is being shown in schools – does he accept the errors and has he done anything to correct them?
However, Mr Gore declined to address the issue and when asked for a straight answer from McAleer – the response of the Society of Enironmental Journalists was not to applaud one of their own for bringing truth to power but instead they cut the mic of a journalist.
It seems it is more important to protect a wealthy politician/businessman than to allow a journalist to ask inconvenient questions.
And they wonder why no one wants to buy their journalism.
