Anti-Gore Hate Mail Campaign Too Obvious to Be Believed

on

If you’re looking for  evidence of the gathering campaign to game the public conversation about climate change, check out this CNN post of Al Gore’s presentation to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Scroll to the bottom of the story and you will see that in less than two hours from the time of posting, the story attracted more than 150 comments, nearly all of them hysterical, bitchy, vitriolic sneers or classic denier talking points.

In a country that just elected President Barack Obama, this is not a representative sample – and I don’t believe for a minute that this is accidental. It would be interesting if CNN could check the IP addresses (or maybe, the IP ADDRESS) on these enthusiastic media consumers. I suspect that would prove this is a fix.
