Will Sheppard Hold His Boss To Same Standard He Holds Gore?
Topic: NewsBusters

An April 12 NewsBusters post by Noel Sheppard bashed Al Gore because he gave a speech "with specific instructions for no press members to be allowed through the doors." Fair enough. But will he criticize his MRC boss for his involvement in an organization that loves to hide from the press?

Brent Bozell's own bio identifies him as member of the Council for National Policy, a group of the nation's most prominent social conservativves with a penchant for secrecy -- meeting behind closed doors at undisclosed locations, featuring speakers that include presidential whose words rarely leave the room they were spoken in. Reporters lacking ties to conservatives are not allowed through the doors, and those reports that are made public  are limited to what CNP honchos want publicized; WorldNetDaily was a willing participant in that self-censorship, as we've noted.

If Brent Bozell can keep reporters out of his little group, why can't Gore keep reporters from his speech? Will Sheppard excoriate his boss for engaging in the same behavior as Gore?

As Sheppard himself might say, there's a metaphysical certitude that won't happen. As such, move along ... nothing to see here.
