John HInderaker: Media Analyst

And, yeah, when you just pull stuff from your ass, "analyst" is pronounced with a long A. Johnny sez:
Yesterday, in an interview with the Associated Press, one of the world's leading weather experts, Dr. William Gray, blasted Al Gore for perpetrating global warming hysteria. Since Dr. Gray is generally recognized as the world's leading expert in the science of forecasting hurricanes, this is news. But let's examine how the AP handled it in the article that resulted from their interview. The AP begins in a straightforward manner...But watch where the story goes from there. First the subtle demeaning of the distinguished Dr. Gray:
Gray, an emeritus professor at the atmospheric science department at Colorado State University, has long railed against the theory that heat-trapping gases generated by human activity are causing the world to warm.
Gray is implicitly depicted as a crank; he "rails." Note that the hysterical and ill-informed Gore never "rails."
Johnny still can't work The Google:

BLUE BONE: How's this for hypocrisy?

Rep. Loretta Sanchez's plan to toss a party at the Playboy Mansion set off a firestorm among Democratic leaders, who felt it was projecting the wrong image for the party.

Apparently, however, these same leaders had no problem when a collection of powerful ``Blue Dog'' congressmen and women tossed a bash out on the Santa Monica pier that was paid for in part by both the National Rifle Association and tobacco giant Philip Morris.

Never mind that Al Gore has long railed against both the gun lobby and big tobacco. It was party time.

Time, Karen Tumulty, August 21, 2000:

When Al railed against the befouling of Love Canal in upstate New York, was anyone rooting for Hooker Chemical? On such emotional and ideological questions as abortion and gun control, his positions shifted away from conservatism as he moved from a rural House district to a more diverse statewide constituency and then to a national audience.

AP, headline, March 5, 2000:

Gore rails against Bush TV ads
