    Al Jazeera regularly has on commentators who call for the destruction of Israel. They also had a celebration for some terrorist who had taken an Israeli child and killed him by smashing his skull. As I said, Al Jazeera is a Jew-hating network.

    Al Gore was on tape last November demanding that rich people pay their fair share in taxes, thereby insinuating that a 15% capital gains rate is not enough. Then he tried to ram this deal through before December 31st and skip the higher rate. Yes, he is a hypocrite.

      Covering the disputed views in the middle east will always be objected to by those who don't want to know what is being said. I dispute that they put on "commentators" calling for the destruction of Israel, meaning Al Jeezera presenters. You get your "information" from right wing lieing internet sites not by watching Al Jeezera, don't you? And until you present documentation of it your claim about such a "celebration" as though Al Jeezera "had a celebration for some terrorist" is a false accusation.

      When Republican presidential candidates take advantage of the tax laws they are supported. When Al Gore deals with the tax laws as they now exist he's maligned. Wanting them changed which would effect him is not hypocrisy. You engage in hypocrisy in all of your rants. I wonder what actually motivates you.

        The hypocrisy of Al Gore regarding this tax dodge is as plain as day. Period.

    Mr. Kurtz:

    You seem to take joy in dumping on FOX News. Yet, a news contributor last week on MSNBC used a racial slur referring ot white people. Yet, you did not bring up the subject this past Sunday. How come?

    I'm a "religious" viewer of Reliable Sources. It's my Sunday ritual. Never have I been so stunned by hypocracy by you as I was this morning. Just before faulting MSNBC for not giving the complete picture of what occurred at the Senate hearing on guns, you did an egregious omission of the total picture in your presentation of Al Gore selling Current t.v. to Al Jezeera.

    You played the questioners as though their question was the answer itself. Not one word of Gore's response which refutes the accusation: Al Jeezera is a world wide respected news organization that has covered climate change more than ALL the U.S. channels including CNN. That's precisely in keeping with Gore's environmental mission. Furthermore, the network's home country, Qaater is known as a chief U.S. ally in the middle east.

    You could have added that no one disputes the Nobel Prize because it's founder Alfred Nobel made his fortune in gun powder that kills people. It's what he gave his money to accomplish, world peace, that is the point. Al Jeezera does what existing U.S. networks are not doing in alerting the world to the facts of the greatest crisis confronting us.

    You claim to give a "critical look at the media." It's time you gave a critical look at the media analysis you purvey. I'm extremely disappointed in you today.

      "Well-respected" by whom? The same people who voted Arafat the Nobel peace prize? Awards don't mean anything. The original Al Jeezera is a Jew-hating network, pure and simple. It is financed by the Qatar government, which gets the bulk of its money from Big Oil. Hypocrisy and anti-Semitism, pure and simple. The panel also left out that Gore tried to ram the deal through before the end of 2012 in order to avoid the higher tax rates on capital gains. More hypocrisy.

        What's "pure and VERY simple" is that reporting on Israel's activities and not cheer leading as the U.S. media and the right wing media does is invariably termed "anti-semitic." Facts are hate to that mentality. And since when does taking advantage of the tax laws become hypocrisy or was Romney hypocritical for doing so to the effect of paying a far lower tax rate than most of us? Awards don't mean anything? How about the one the writer ears for disingenuity?
