I just found out that former presidential candidate Al Gore's 19-year-old son was arrested last week and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, reckless driving, and possession of alcohol by a minor. This was reported in the conservative WASHINGTON TIMES yesterday, and in today's NEW YORK POST and NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.

I have not heard anything about this on television news. I did a search of the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and Washington Post, and could not find this story in any of them. I'll be watching the media for this story throughout the next week to see if it receives the same type of coverage the Bush twins get for underage drinking. Yes, I realize this isn't exactly an apples-to-apples comparison. Al Gore III's father isn't the president, even though many on the left still claim Gore won. On the other hand, the Bush twins didn't commit the cardinal sin of alcohol offenses by getting behind the wheel of a car.
