An Open Letter to Al Gore

Dear Hon. Al Gore,

I faxed you a letter yesterday about making Current TV into a News Show. This nation desperately needs a venue where the truth is told instead of “sanitized” news that bolsters the government’s agenda. I’m serious about this and I’m not the only one that thinks this way. There are millions of people that don’t accept the pap that is delivered on the networks and cable stations. NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and you station Current TV.

You are a man of conscience. You would have never written “An Inconvenient Truth” if you weren’t. This is another Inconvenient Truth. We are being bombarded with government propaganda on a scale that is that is beyond anything this nation has ever experienced.

I’m a writer that goes to extremes to find the real truth about what is happening in this world. What I find is diametrically different than what I am hearing in mainstream news in this country. Without a free press that informs the electorate, we end up with a nation of sheep. Is this what you want? Is this what the “elite” in this country want? It’s sure not what the majority of people in this country want. We want a free press that is not beholden to corporate benefactors or government control. We need a New Station that reports the news as it really is.

You are in a position to do this. You have a cable station and the political clout to keep the dogs at bay. This is an incredible opportunity to give the people what they want. Why must we turn to Russia Today to get the unvarnished truth about what is really happening in this country and the World? Look at the protests of the Occupation Movement. They hardly got any press coverage, but a Tea Party protest with 60 people makes the headlines. Isn’t this a bit ridiculous?

There are so many things that the Mainstream Media refuses to cover. Poverty in America is just one of them. The disparity of wealth in this nation is worse than at any other time in our history. We need to have coverage of these things. We need to report on This New Normal where people are working two jobs with no benefits just to keep their homes. This is a matter of conscience. It is a matter that is crucial to the people.

It is up to you to meet this challenge. You can do nothing or you can be an American hero by giving the people the real unvarnished news. You have the resources, but do you have the will? That is the question that you must decide for yourself. Do you “want to go along to get along” or do you want to be part of the solution. I am only one writer, but I have over 10,000 readers and listeners on my radio show. Be part of the solution. I know you have it in you. You can be a Hero to the American people. The choice is yours.

Sincerely,
Timothy V. Gatto
