Is there a Nobel Prize for Propaganda?

A new video report from the BBC states that Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth presented false facts.   It was also reported this week that British public schools can only show the movie to its students if a warning label of the nine major falsehoods are shown first.

This week Gore cancelled his appearance at a fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer.  The Senator from San Fran writes, “I just got a call from Vice President Al Gore.  He told me that he needs to travel abroad tomorrow for an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming.”

The buzz is that Gore is headed to Oslo for the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony. Steve Milloy of JunkScience.com said:

We call on the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which awards the Nobel Prize Committee to award the prize to a deserving candidate, rather than someone who plays fast and loose with the facts to advance his personal agenda. Also, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should revoke the Oscar An Inconvenient Truth won for best documentary. The real “inconvenient truth” is that Gore seems to have intentionally omitted it from his movie. The Norwegian Nobel Committee and Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ought not risk their brands on Al Gore’s chicanery.

I expect Gore will be arriving in Oslo by private jet and picked up by a fleet of SUVs. You can’t blame him though — his ego couldn’t fit into a Prius anyway.

UPDATE: He got it.
