ALEXANDRIA, VA This weekend, the Academy may well award Al Gore an Oscar for his much hyped film An Inconvenient Truth at the 2007 Academy Awards. But according to the MRCs Business & Media Institute, the media have already proclaimed him a global warming saint by broadcasting his left-wing propaganda as fact and disregarding scientific evidence that runs contrary to global warming hysteria.

The liberal elites in Hollywood have honored Gore with an Academy nomination, rewarding one of their own for peddling propaganda, stated L. Brent Bozell, President of the Media Research Center. Whether or not Gore wins Sunday, the news media have already awarded him an Oscar.

The era of objectivity on global warming is over, and we have the liberal media to thank for stifling the debate. Al Gore is just the latest example.

Highlights of Gore, Global Warming Bias

Cameras Keep Rolling The networks devoted five hours and 38 minutes of coverage to Al Gore and his film on national television last summer. Thats over three-and-a-half times the actual length of the 94-minute documentary in only three months. Gore appeared 75 times.

Hot or Cold, Winter Means Warming From the unseasonably warm East coast weather to the snow storm that hit the Midwest, anchors blamed the 2007 winter weather on global warming. Some even speculated that it meant the end: So Im running in the park on Saturday, in shorts thinking this is great but are we all gonna die? whined NBCs Meredith Vieira on January 8, 2007.

What Facts? The media have repeated Gores catastrophic predictions about a sea level rise of 20 feet, but ignored the huge difference from the U.N. report that gives a high-end prediction of just 17 inches.
