Gore criticizes media for not pressing Obama on climate

“Journalists asked the President about important 2nd term agenda items this AM, but continued to ignore the climate crisis. Why?,” Gore tweeted from his @algore account.

Gore has blasted the media in the past for its coverage of climate change. He was especially critical of the press during last year's White House race, in which climate change did not surface in any of the three debates between Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney.

Gore also has often urged Obama to more forcefully use his executive powers and presidential platform to address climate change.
