This is from Al Gore’s journal:

Stop Censoring News From The Gulf June 14, 2010 : 1:08 PMThese reports are deeply disturbing:

“When the operators of Southern Seaplane in Belle Chasse, La., called the local Coast Guard-Federal Aviation Administration command center for permission to fly over restricted airspace in Gulf of Mexico, they made what they thought was a simple and routine request.”

“A pilot wanted to take a photographer from The Times-Picayune of New Orleans to snap photographs of the oil slicks blackening the water. The response from a BP contractor who answered the phone late last month at the command center was swift and absolute: Permission denied.”

This behavior is completely unacceptable. Access by reporters should be as unfettered as possible. This de facto form of censorship needs to stop.

Um Hey AL aren’t you being a little hypocritical?
I point the jury’s attention to the following link of an article and a picture

Al Gore mandated that no press were allowed in during his speach

UPDATE:
I sent an email to Mr. Gore about this. Let’s see if there is any response.

    Let’s see he is not banning phones. You can take pictures and record what ever you want. Get over yourself.

    Well, that’s not surprising. That he is standing on a forked platform. Not any different than keeping the entourage of Hummer, and SUV engines and A/C’s running back at his big global warming/ Go/Green…= my bank account rallies.

    I really shouldn’t drop a personal bomb on him, but, oh yeah, that’s right the news is already out about his affair with Larry David’s bomb shell wife isn’t it:
    Gee, talk about an (inconvenient truth)
