Is The O'Reilly Factor planning to smear Gore again?


Fox News has been promoting a segment on "Gore's green money" for tonight's O'Reilly Factor, asking: "Is Al making tons of cash off global warming fears?"

Gore says he's donated the money he's earned from climate-related ventures to a non-profit, but in the past, The O'Reilly Factor has had trouble pointing that out.

Just last month, while guest-hosting the Factor, Laura Ingraham said: "It seems that being green does pay big time -- just ask Al Gore. Mr. Global Warming was worth about $2 million or so when he left office in 2001, but after eight years of tirelessly working to save the world, the planet, he's now reportedly -- get this -- worth a whopping $100 million. His financial windfall came up at last week's Capitol Hill hearing."

Ingraham then proceeded to air clips of Gore's April 24 congressional testimony that had been edited to remove his statements that he donates the money he makes from his climate-related work to a non-profit organization.

For example, Ingraham aired a clip of Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn asking Gore, "Is the legislation that we are discussing here today, is that something that you are going to personally benefit from?" But the Factor edited out the portion of Gore's response in which he stated: "But every penny that I have made, I have put right into a nonprofit, the Alliance for Climate Protection, to spread awareness of why we have to take on this challenge."
