Its a little late. but its about time that the “professional” media got their facts right about what Al Gore said about the Internet:
Ms. Pelosi was asked whether Congress would accept Mr. Gore’s energy challenge. “It is absolutely possible to do so,” she said.
She added that without Mr. Gore, “there would be no Netroots Nation; we would simply not have the technology.”
As a reminder of the flap caused years ago — when he got tagged with having said he “invented” the Internet, although he had not used that word and had, in fact, helped legislatively to create it — he smiled at Ms. Pelosi’s comments and said, “I think I’ll refrain from saying it.”
