Al Gore vs. the WSJ’s Walt Mossberg
It looks like Al Gore still doesn’t like to answer questions about his hypocritical sale of Current TV to oil-rich Qatar. Via Deadline Hollywood:
AllThingsD editor Walt Mossberg took the opportunity to call the former VP on an inconvenient truth — not his movie, the hypocrisy of his sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera. “You sold your network to Al Jazeera, which is owned by a government that’s a big oil producer,” asked Mossberg. “How could you do that?” Gore eventually responded “I don’t ask you why you continue working for Rupert Murdoch.” Uh-oh. Mossberg parried, “Last I checked, he’s not in the oil business”. Gore retorted, “He’s also not strictly in the news business, either”.
Mossberg should have asked him about massages, too.
