Telemundo Reporter Featured in Gore’s ‘Climate Leadership’ Ad

At what point do journalists stop feigning objectivity and become bald-faced activists? Someone should ask Telemundo’s evening news reporter Vanessa Hauc. Former Vice President Al Gore’s non-profit organization, Climate Reality Project, featured Hauc in a promotional video for “24 Hours of Reality.” Currently, Gore’s group is recruiting “Climate Reality Leaders” for its March 2016 conference in the Philippines. The event’s site advertises Hauc as a previous speaker at its “Climate Leadership Training Corps” event in 2015. While there, she defended her role as a journo-activist, saying that that while journalists should be objective on most issues, there are issues where they can eschew balance. “I realize that there are some issues that, yes, you can move a little bit – critical issues that are very important for your community, like health, human rights, the environment. Because this is something that’s crucial. Then you can definitely put yourself into it because this is information that is going to be vital for your community,” Hauc said at the conference held in Miami, Florida. – See more at:
