That's Going to Take a While 

Al Gore is closer to starting his new "non-partisan" news service... saying that he's a recovering politician (H/T to LGF):

Former Vice President Al Gore, co-founder of a new television channel launching next month, said he's shunning politics - and so is his media venture.

"I consider myself a recovering politician. I'm on step nine," Gore told a meeting Monday of the Television Critics Association.

The 2004 Democratic candidate for president was asked if he was concerned the 24-hour news and information channel, called Current, would be perceived as having a political slant. It's scheduled to launch Aug. 1.

"I think the reality of the network will speak for itself. It's not intended to be partisan in any way," said Gore, Current's co-founder (with businessman Joel Hyatt) and chairman of the board.

He's on step 9 huh? I wonder if Al actually knows what the steps are. Interestingly enough, step 9 is "Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others." I have a feeling that Al won't be getting to step 10 for a long long time. More also on this from Daily Pundit.
