Soon-to-be-daddy marc (4 weeks and counting) has a great take on the new “Al(Gore) America” TV network. We join marc mid-post, wherein he quotes the story on it and is then noticing that this Democrat is (again) pigeonholing demographics, much like his party does.

Gore said the network will be “an independent voice in this industry” with a primary target audience of people between 18 and 34 “who want to learn about the world in a voice they recognize and a view they recognize as their own.”

“This is not going to be a liberal network, a Democratic network or a political network,” Gore said at a news conference.

OK, Al, I’ll bite. As a “young adult” male in that 18-34 demo, please tell me – what world do I recognize? What is my “view”? Are 18-34 year olds a monolithic group, wandering aimlessly through the media void looking for a news outlet that provides “bold and irreverent” programming that expresses their “view”? And does anyone really believe that this isn’t going to be a “political” network?

Of course, this is how Democrats treat all sorts of groups (women, blacks, Hispanics), and in fact how the news media in general treats them (always going to NOW for the “woman’s view” or the NAACP for the “black view”).

So I join with marc in asking, “And this is different…how, exactly?”
