Gore Wins Nobel, NY Times Slights Him

So Al Gore wins the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday for his years of work on global climate change, and what does The New York Times decide to do? Representative of the most shameless type of "Fair and Balanced" reporting, made popular by Fox News and long de rigeur in our mainstream press, The Times very prominently placed reader comments on its front page - specifically, in sets of two directly beneath photos of Mr. Gore, giving two sides to an issue on which the scientific community has already reached a consensus: man has, and is, contributing to the warming of the planet and we must take substantive action before it's too late.
