Couric Celebrates the ‘King of Conservation’


CBS news anchor Katie Couric interviewed Al Gore on her web program, “@katiecouric,” this week as the Goracle makes the media rounds flogging his new book, Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis.  Would she go after his blatant conflict of interest in using nonprofit dollars to promote and lobby for energy policies the adoption of which would benefit him financially? Would Katie put the ex-veep through the shredder, exposing his shallowness on the global warming issue — giving him the same treatment she gave Sarah Palin last fall?

Couric’s introduction: “I’m honored to be joined today by the Godfather of Green, the King of Conservation: Former vice president Al Gore.”

Nope. No bias there.
