Like other media organisations, the San Antonio Express-News was blocked from covering an Al Gore speech. Unlike other media organisations, the San Antonio Express-News covered it anyway:

So here’s what happened: Our intrepid reporter, Caputo, went over to the convention center Thursday, registered under his own name and address as an “expo only” attendee and got a pass that gave him access to the speech. Then he covered it and wrote about it. It was that easy.

Purists might contend that was unethical. To me, it was like crashing a Ku Klux Klan rally. Gore didn’t want coverage. We think he deserved it.

What the hell is Gore frightened of?
