ABC Reporters Laud Gore; Applaud Use of Propaganda

ABC contributor Cokie Roberts apparently approves of propaganda, as long as she agrees with it. The veteran journalist appeared with George Will and Sam Donaldson on Sunday’s “This Week.” In response to a claim by token conservative Will that Al Gore grossly exaggerates the threat of global warming, Roberts positively assessed, “The truth is there have always been propagandists who make something popular.” Using a strained comparison, Roberts continued to justify Gore’s misinformation by arguing that the former Vice President popularizes the work of climate change scientists: “Go back to the revolution….You had Tom Paine and you had the Continental Congress. So you do have the two and they both work for a debate.”
