The [Further] Death of Journalism

What truth is proof against all lies?

The Society of Environmental Journalists held a conference in Madison, Wisconsin questioning why mainstream journalism (AKA the state-run media) was dying.
Former Vice President Al Gore -who never allows journalists questions- was giving his first Q & A in 4 years.
Phelim McAleer, the director of Not Evil Just Wrong, asked Gore about the British Court Case which found his documentary An Inconvenient Truth had nine significant errors.
McAleer asked that given Al's documentary is being shown in schools – does he accept the errors and has he done anything to correct them?
Gore declined to address the issue and McAleer continued to press for a straight answer.
How did his "fellow journalists" react? The result is alarming for the future of journalism. The response of the Society of Enironmental Journalists was not to applaud one of their own for bringing truth to power but instead they decided it was their role to protect Al Gore from An Inconvenient Question, and Phelim's mic was shut off.

MC is right! Death is too good for "the fourth estate", heat the tar! Fetch the feathers! Let us brutally butcher all these bastards! -- OK, maybe those weren't his exact words, but the sentiment was inferred.
