FOX News Repeats Discredited Slurs Against Al Gore

Reported by Ellen - August 22, 2006 -

On Friday night's Hannity & Colmes (8/18/06), "real journalism" FOX News featured guest Peter Schweizer, author of a now-discredited piece in USA Today smearing Al Gore's "greenness." Although Alan Colmes noted a lot of the falsehoods, substitute co-host Rich Lowry repeated them and Schweizer, whose employer has ties to the energy industry, was presented as a bona fide expert. Think Progress has the details.
