Gore Derangement Syndrome
Topic: NewsBusters

NewsBusters' Noel Sheppard regularly attacks Al Gore, calling his film "An Inconvenient Truth" a "schlockumentary" and asserting without evidence that he's "a charlatan who doesn't believe in anything but himself and attaining power."

Sheppard keeps up the mindless attacks in a June 30 post. Repeating a op-ed by an employee of the Heartland Institute -- an activist group whose conservative leanings, secrecy over its funding and dubious ties to the tobacco industry Sheppard has previously declined to share with his readers -- Sheppard calls "An Inconvenient Truth" "political science fiction" and asserts, again without evidence, that Gore has "been lying all along for his own personal and financial gain."

Such unsupported personal attacks -- not to mention hiding the inconvenient facts behind his attacks on Gore and global warming when they conflict with his own agenda -- are quickly turning Sheppard into a shrill, unreliable source.
