This Week in Media Bias History: ‘Al Gore, Sexy Man’

December 15th, 2018 12:15 PM

Liberal journalists have an interesting concept of what’s “sexy.” In the December 12, 2007 Washington Post, writers Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan wrote about Al Gore’s Nobel Prize. After mentioning actress Uma Thurman praise his global warming work, the reporters enthused, “Al Gore, sexy man. The thinking girl’s thoroughbred.” 

On December 8, 1999, CBS reporter Lesley Stahl cheered Hillary Clinton in a style that journalists would still be doing almost 20 years later: “I’m endlessly fascinated by her.... She’s so smart. Virtually every time I’ve seen her perform, she has knocked my socks off.”
