Fox News Did Air Gore’s ‘Every Penny’ Non-Profit Claim – Video Challenges Media Matters Claim

-

Media Matters for America is claiming that Fox News edited the video clip of Gore’s Congressional testimony during a May 1 segment “to remove his statements that he donates the money he makes from his climate-related work to a non-profit organization.” The O’Reilly Factor segment featured Climate Depot’s executive editor and chief correspondent Marc Morano.

But Fox News did air the clip earlier in the program of Gore claiming that “every penny” he earns goes to his non-profit.

See this video clip of The O’Reilly Factor’s May 1, 2009 show introduction featuring Gore making the “every penny” statement. (Gore clip begins at 30 sec. mark)

In addition, as one report on Gore’s finances noted: “So what if [Gore’s] giving all his money to the [non-profit] Alliance for Climate Protection. He’s the chair! He gets a tax write-off for donating that money, and then directs where the money goes.” See Background/Related Links section below for more details.
