The coverage (much of it attacks and distortions) of Gore and his movie is coming fast and furious — too much for this over-worked blogger to keep up with. Here’s a random round-up of stuff I’ve come across (and not yet linked to):
- A long, fascinating, and complimentary cover story in New York Magazine. If you read one thing, this should be it. (The mag also has a review of the movie by David Edelstein.)
- A flattering write-up in USA Today in which Gore denies he’s running.
- Tech Central Station — shill-factory non-pareil — posts a purported fact check of Gore’s movie. An Andrew Sullivan reader smacked it down. The editor of TCS replies and, unbelievably, uses the same twisted quote from my interview with Gore, which, as I’ve pointed out, means exactly the opposite of what he says it means.
- The cover story in National Review is a hack job on Gore’s movie. ThinkProgress fact checks it, to devastating effect.
- Rotten Tomatoes has links to about a zillion more reviews of the movie.
- Judith Lewis from LA Weekly interviews Gore.
- The Nation‘s David Corn converses with Gore, mostly about politics.
- Over at TAPPED, Ezra Klein’s been running a Gore Watch, keeping up with the press. Read the two latest here and here.
- Shakespeare’s Sister eviscerates Howard Fineman (and by implication the whole clubby Beltway punditariat) for his treatment of Gore. (via Ezra)
