Really Professor? It has nothignt to do with politics. It is because Newt has been and is a paid contributor to NBC, just like he is for Fox, hence there are certain terms to his apearance.I see, I did not know that as anytime I've seen Newt on the Today Show- he has never been identified as such.
By comparison, Gore was there promoting a book on his own and Matt wasa free to ask what ever he wants.of course, and Lauer pestered him to no end, treating a former VP as if he was grilling Milli Vanilli about their lip synching. It was totally crass, imo
And for th record, when Newt was campaigning, and not being paid, the Today Show did ask him direct questions about his past and current camapign.that's fine and dandy abt the campaign, but what abt the womanizing?
Funny, I see people calling him a GOP on one side, and a libtard on the other. I see him as a pretty fair interiewer. One who leans left personally, but does not have it break through in his journalism.I don't know, or care how he votes. My statement is that he is a 'Republican lap dog' , which means that even though he may vote Democratic, he is still doing the bidding of the GOP when he attacks Gore like a unshaven maniac
Rep and Dem leadership are 2 sides of the same coin:
What if the heart of this government is the same regardless of which Party is in power?
When Russell Train, later EPA’s second administrator, urged him to make the environment a high priority, Nixon took the advice.
1970 was a banner year for Nixon’s environmental achievements. On New Year’s Day, Nixon signed into law the National Environmental Policy Act. (NEPA) Six weeks later, he put a sweeping legislative program of clean air and water, waste reduction and open space acquisition before Congress. Six months later, Nixon established EPA. And on New Year’s Eve, Nixon signed the Clean Air Act into law.
Ronald Reagan faced a divided house. Some in his administration wanted nothing to do with a treaty to phase out industrial chemicals that, evidence showed, depleted the atmosphere’s protective ozone layer.
EPA and the State Department pushed back against the anti-regulatory ideologues, arguing that public health and America’s international standing was at stake.
Reagan sided with his scientists and diplomats, and personally ordered them to negotiate a strong treaty. The resulting 1987 Montreal Protocol, which Reagan called a "monumental achievement," was the most important international environmental agreement in history.
Created those [four national monuments] that he established out in the Pacific Ocean which are not easily forgotten. Bush took Theodore Roosevelt’s (Republican) Antiquities Act precedent much further than any of his predecessors by establishing marine preserves that cover nearly 215 million acres, big enough to swallow Bush’s home state of Texas, plus Oklahoma.
Ocean stewardship is the next big frontier for conservation. George W. Bush pointed the way forward.
