Andrea Mitchell Confused Why ‘Prophet of Climate Change’ Al Gore Would Do Business with Al Jazeera


NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell sat down with Al Gore and asked the former vice president about the sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera. Calling Gore a “prophet of climate change,” she questioned why he would take money from the Qatar-backed network. “It would be like taking the money from ExxonMobil if ExxonMobil owned Al Jazeera,” Mitchell said. Gore defended his decision, praising Al Jazeera’s coverage of climate change which he said is “better than what’s available now.”
