On May 4, FOX News Channel host Bill O'Reilly told viewers that former Vice President Al Gore had announced that he is starting a "liberal" cable channel; however, in Gore's May 4 press conference, announcing his acquisition of Newsworld International from Vivendi Universal SA, Gore said quite the opposite: "This is not going to be a liberal network or a Democratic network or a political network in any way shape or form."
From the May 4 O'Reilly Factor:
O'REILLY: Time now for the "Most Ridiculous Item of the Day." Al Gore has announced that he is starting up a new cable channel exclusively devoted to liberal stuff. We wish Mr. Gore good luck. And he'll need it.
